WEST SIDE STORY, CAPITOL THEATRE, Tuesday, April 16-Sunday, April 21, 432.50-$57.50

Roughly 50 years after its debut, West Side Story remains a musical-theater warhorse, drawing audiences to the story of star-crossed lovers Tony and Maria thanks to the inventive choreography and a musical score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim that is considered a classic by many. There's no arguing that songs like "I Feel Pretty" and "Tonight" have burrowed into the public consciousness in a way many songs never enjoy. This current touring production boasts the involvement of Tony-winning choreography Joey McKneely and lighting maestro Howell Binkley, among many Broadway vets.
