Sparks and songs fly in West Side Story, the now-classic reimagining of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Set in Manhattan’s Upper West Side in the 50s, the musical explores the rivalry between the Jets and the Sharks and the fragile (and ultimately tragic) love that forms between Tony, a member of the Jets, and Maria, the sister of the leader of the Sharks. This 1961 film adaptation of the Broadway play won ten Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Part of the Top of the Park series, presented by the Ann Arbor Summer Festival.
