West Side Story dances back to Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes Theatre has announced West Side Story will return to its stage in 2014.

Tuesday, 19th February 2013, 8:42 am

When it opened on Broadway in 1957, West Side Story changed the course of musical theatre, and the film which followed won a staggering 10 Academy Awards.

Fast-forward more than half a century and the love story with a decidedly tragic conclusion remains a huge success - and played a sold out season at the Chatelet Theatre in Paris last Christmas.

West Side Story explores the rivaly between two Manhattan-based teenage gangs; one white, one Puerto Rican.

It also has a sensational score which includes memorable songs Maria, Tonight, Somewhere, America and I Feel Pretty.

The production will play in Milton Keynes from 3-14 June, 2014.

Tickets are on sale now from the box office, with prices starting at £15.
