West Side Story is a 1961 musical about a young man and woman who fall in love with each other despite their respective allegiances to rival gangs. West Side Story is closely based on the classic play, Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare. The Jets, an all-white gang, and the Sharks, an all-Puerto Rican gang, are staging a turf fight for control of their New York City neighborhood. Tony is the best friend of Riff, the leader of the Jets. One day, he meets a young woman named Maria, sister of the leader of the Sharks, Bernardo. Despite their different backgrounds, Tony and Maria are instantly smitten with each other and quickly become romantically involved. This new relationship angers both Riff and Bernardo, who see Tony and Maria's love for each other as a betrayal. As a huge turf war looms, Tony and Maria must choose between their love for each other and the loyalty they owe to their own people.moreless
