Synopsis

Maria and Tony, two young people, meet each other at a ball and they fell madly in love. However, they’re stuck in two rival gangs, and their relationship with their friends and family is getting spoiled by their love. One day, during a fight, Tony kills Maria’s brother. She decides to forgive her lover and to run away with him. However, the man she was supposed to marry, Chino, decides to kill Tony to take his revenge, as he was a close friend of Maria’s brother. He does it in front of Maria, who kills him because of the hate it brings her.

THe new Romeo and juliet

Such as in Romeo ad Juliet, Tony and Maria are living an impossible love because of their close-ones relationships and hate. Their love is going to lead them to the death of the girl's brother or cousin, the boy's best friend or cousin, and their own.

The gangs

The Jets are a gang initiated by Tony and his best friend Riff. It's a gang full of poor white people, considered by the rest of New York City as unsuccessful as they couldn't climb on the social ladder.

The Sharks are a gang led by Bernardo, Maria's brother, and his girlfriend Anita. The gang is full of immigrants from Puerto Rico. The Jets hates them because they consider that they are "stealing their lands".

The Jets

The Sharks

The lovers

It wouldn't be a Romeo and Juliet if it didn't talk about love. Tony and Maria start out on different sides of an ethnic turf war, and their love blooms to show everyone that fighting isn't the answer. That makes their doomed romance all the more tragic, but it also makes it very powerful: fostered in the middle of great hate and all the stronger for the negative emotions surrounding it.
Love's a complicated thing in West Side Story. On one hand, it's blind, impulsive, irrational, foolish, unrealistic, and just plain dangerous. On the other hand, it's all that matters.

My favorite song

lyrics

ANITA
Puerto Rico,
My heart's devotion—
Let it sink back in the ocean.
Always the hurricanes blowing,
Always the population growing,
And the money owing,
And the sunlight streaming,
And the natives steaming.

I like the island Manhattan—
Smoke on your pipe and put that in!

GIRLS (chorus)
I like to be in America,
O.K. by me in America,
Everything free in America—

BERNARDO
For a small fee in America.

ANITA
Buying on credit is so nice.

BERNARDO
One look at us and they charge twice.

ROSALIA
I'll have my own washing machine.

JUANO
What will you have, though, to keep clean?

ANITA
Skyscrapers bloom in America.

ANOTHER GIRL
Cadillacs zoom in America.

ANOTHER GIRL
Industry boom in America.

BOYS
Twelve in a room in America.

ANITA
Lots of new housing with more space.

BERNARDO
Lots of doors slamming in our face.

ANITA
I'll get a terrace apartment.

BERNARDO
Better get rid of your accent.

ANITA AND THREE GIRLS
Life can be bright in America.

ALL BOYS
If you can fight in America.

ALL GIRLS
Life is all right in America.

ALL BOYS
If you're all-white in America.

(an interlude of WHISTLING and DANCING)

ANITA AND CONSUELO
Here you are free and you have pride.

BERNARDO
Long as you stay on your own side.

ANITA
Free to be anything you choose.

ALL BOYS
Free to wait tables and shine shoes.

BERNARDO
Everywhere grime in America,
Organized crime in America,
Terrible time in America.

ANITA
You forget I'm in America.

(An interlude of MORE DANCING)

BERNARDO
I think I go back to San Juan

I know a boat you can get on.

Everyone there will have moved here.
