West Side Story

Nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director

Written by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Tony Kushner, West Side Story, and still with Bernstein’s legendary score and Sondheim’s ultra-brilliant lyrics, this extraordinary reimagining of the beloved Broadway show stars Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars) and Ariana DeBose (The Prom), and also features the legendary Rita Moreno, who took home the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her turn as Anita in 1961’s West Side Story. West Side Story brings together the best of Hollywood and Broadway to create a fresh take on an iconic production.

"You will leave the theatre swooning, in love with the biggest kind of big picture"
Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail
"Both a reimagining informed by contemporary values and a lavishly mounted throwback"
David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
"Spielberg's finest film in 20 years, and a new milestone in the career of one of our greatest living directors"
Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
