Based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story thrillingly
chronicles the unlikely romance between a white New York street hoodlum
and his Puerto Rican lover, set against a backdrop of violence and racism
doled out by two city gangs, the Jets and the Sharks.
The movie made international celebrities of its stars Natalie Wood, Rita
Moreno, Richard Beymer, Russ Tamblyn and George Chakiris. Yet the real
stars were these songs, by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim.
The music is soaring and emotional, mixing jazz and Latin-American
rhythms in a sophisticated blend of complicated musical styles. The lyrics
are complex, witty and soul-stirring.
