The female ensemble dancers in West Side Story.

West Side Story on Tour Around France

Posted by Speakeasy News > Thursday 04 January 2024 > Pedagogy Shine Bright Lycée

The West Side Story production that has just finished in Paris will be touring to Bordeaux, Lyons, Rouen and Nantes in February and March. A full stage production, it is in English with French surtitles.

The musical comedy by Bernstein, Sondheim and Robbins is a reworking of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, with the Capulets and Montagues being replaced by rival gangs  in New York. If your LLCER students are studying the film version, this would be a great complement. And in any case it's a great night out.

The "star-crossed lovers": Maria and Tony.
