CRITIC'S CHOICE - LA
"With a talented cast and a small, sparse stage, the company did an
impressive job telling such a large story on such a small scale."
"Director Ken Gray Scolari and the Musical Theatre of Los Angeles
have mounted a respectable if not brilliant production." -
"West Side Story" at the Hudson Backstage Theatre is outrageously
better than anyone has a reasonable right to expect..." -LA TIMES

Recommended -- A+!! This West Side
Story has youthful energy, passion, and commitment on its side, making
the final product well worth a look-see. - StageSceneLA

Special Theatre Info
The theatre has concessions.
Musical Theatre of Los Angeles is proud to
present the final production from their 2008 Season, 'WEST SIDE STORY'.
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.
