West Side Story: IN CONCERT
More than fifty years ago one musical changed theater forever. Now it's back to mesmerize audiences once again, as the McCallum Theatre proudly presents West Side Story: IN CONCERT. From the first note to the final breath, West Side Story soars as the greatest love story of all time. In this very special concert version, conducted by Richard Kaufman and produced and directed by Chad Hilligus, this poignant, provocative and emotionally powerful masterpiece takes us back to the mid-1950’s and New York’s Upper West Side, where racial and social tensions run high. Hear many of Bernstein’s most beloved songs: “Maria,” “America,” “Somewhere” and “Tonight.” Headlined by Matthew Hydzik as Tony (Broadway’s West Side Story, Side Show and Grease) and Ali Ewoldt as Maria (currently starring in Broadway’s Phantom of the Opera), this McCallum Exclusive will feature a 40-piece orchestra comprised of LA’s finest musicians and an all-star cast direct from the Broadway and National Tour companies of this iconic musical.
