West Side Story and the Great American MusicalsRegular price $14.99
Audiences have thrilled to the beat of West Side Story for more than 60 years, clicking their fingers to its signature score and belting out hits such as “America,” “I Feel Pretty,” and “Tonight” with gusto. Admired for its high-octane dance routines and its tale of romance doomed by hatred and intolerance, West Side Story is also, for many, their first experience with contemporary theater, one that would kindle a life-long love of musicals. As the original film version celebrates its diamond anniversary in 2021, we look back at West Side Story’s origin, rebirth, and best moments, plus highlight other great American musicals that have had an impact on pop culture today.
