Our next musical is announced!
LMVG is delighted to announce, that our 2018 musical production will be none other than Broadway classic, West Side Story!
Award-winning duo Claire Tighe (Director, Choreographer) and Dave Hayes (Musical Director) will set the scene for this most memorable musical and one of the greatest love stories of all time – we can’t wait!
Leixlip: Tuesday 24th April – Saturday 28th April 2018
From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Arthur Laurents’ book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim is widely regarded as one of the best ever written. The world’s greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre’s finest accomplishments.
Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City, as two young idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the “American” Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.
West Side Story’s exciting, sophisticated score by Bernstein and Sondheim is often considered Broadway’s finest – its songs part of musical heritage. As originally staged by the legendary Jerome Robbins, the show is also an impressive showcase for accomplished dancers.
Audition details for West Side Story will be announced soon!
Originally Produced on Broadway by Robert E. Griffith and Harold S. Prince.
