Think you know  West Side Story? You’ve never seen it this close. Experience this passionate classic on City Lights’ intimate stage. Romeo and Juliet hits the streets of New York City as two young lovers get caught between warring street gangs — the American “Jets” and the Puerto Rican “Sharks.” Their struggle to survive in a world of hatred and violence becomes one of the most breathtaking, relevant musical dramas of all time. In the spirit of City Lights’ 2006 production of Jesus Christ Superstar, this glorious musical experience finds new life and renewed poignancy this summer.
