The first musical directed by Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg, from a screenplay by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Tony Kushner, West Side Story tells the classic tale of fierce rivalries and young love.

It’s love at first sight when Tony spots Maria at a high school dance in 1957 New York City. Their burgeoning romance helps to fuel the fire between the warring Jets and Sharks - two rival gangs vying for control of the streets.

Miraculous… West Side Story is, I believe, Spielberg’s finest film in 20 years, and a new milestone in the career of one of our greatest living directors. ★★★★★

The Telegraph

Stunning recreations of the original film’s New York retain the songs and the dancing in a re-telling that will leave you gasping. ★★★★★
