More than 50 years ago, one musical changed theater forever. Now it’s back and mesmerizing audiences once again. From the first note to the final breath, West Side Story soars as the greatest love story of all time and remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The Bernstein and Sondheim score is considered to be one of Broadway’s finest and features such classics of American musical theatre as Something’s Coming, Tonight, America, I Feel Pretty and Somewhere. As the Associated Press said, “West Side Story remains Broadway’s best dance-driven musical. Five decades have not dimmed the extraordinary choreography or the score that pulsates throughout.”
UF student tickets are $15 and students who attend the Nov. 27 performance can gain access to an after party at the Phillips Center. Pizza and refreshments will be provided and attendees will have a chance to meet select cast members.
