New Shows at Eastwood Theatre
The following weekend (18-22nd January) Glasgow Music Theatre is bringing West Side Story to Eastwood Park Theatre.
This savage retelling of Romeo and Juliet concerns an American boy and a Puerto Rican girl, caught in the cross-fire of gang warfare in a New York slum. A feast for the eyes, ears and heart, West Side Story features Bernstein's unforgettable songs: 'Tonight', 'Maria', 'I Feel Pretty' and 'America'. This urban love story is now regarded as a masterpiece of musical theatre.
GMT'S production of West Side Story moves away from the sanitised movie version of the show and redresses the balance between the Jets and the Sharks. There's no good versus evil, no right versus wrong, just damaged young people seething with hate, fear and prejudice.
Featuring exhilarating choreography for some of Glasgow's finest dancers, this production replaces Broadway glitz with gritty gang warfare as the very best of Glasgow's talent performs this Broadway classic as you've never seen it before.
