"West Side Story" back on Broadway

Get ready to rumble! The classic musical about the Sharks, the Jets and the ill-fated love affair involving a man and woman caught between two gangs in New York is set to return to Broadway. The show, with music by Leonard Bernstein, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and choreography by Jerome Robbins will hit Broadway in February 2009. The musical's new director Arthur Laurents said, "This show will be radically different from any other production of West Side Story ever done."
