West Side Story - Chicago Broadway at Lyric


(Anticipate minimal walking)
Leonard Bernstein’s music and Stephen Sondheim’s lyrics transplant Romeo and Juliet to the backstreets of New York, giving us this Broadway musical masterpiece.  Tony and Maria are two wide-eyed teenagers from opposing gangs who fall in love. As their friends and family battle with one another, Tony and Maria long for “a place for us…somewhere.” Their songs illuminate every scene and permeate our culture, from the romance of “Maria” and “Tonight” to the exuberance of “America” and the humor of “Gee, Officer Krupke.” Add to that the bold, sexy, iconic dances of Jerome Robbins that smolder and sizzle with energy, and you have a musical-theater experience you’ll never forget. Prior to the show we will be providing a boxed lunch catered from Honeybaked Ham.  Please select a meal option: 1) ham classic 2) turkey bacon ranch 3) chicken salad.  Each meal is served with a pickle, chips and a cookie.
