The upcoming production of the Broadway classic musical West Side Story marks the return of production company Must Come See Productions to the theatre landscape of T&T after a four year hiatus. The show runs from June 21 to 24 at Queen’s Hall, St Ann’s.
Co-producer and musical director Jessel Murray said West Side Story is the musical version of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, set in America in the 1950s with the Montague and Capulet families replaced by warring gangs, the Puerto Rican Sharks and the American Jets. The main characters Tony (Romeo) and Maria (Juliet) belong to these warring factions.
