April 19: West Side Story at The Lucas Theatre, 32 Abercorn St. 3 p.m. Romeo and Juliet is updated to the tenements of New York City in this Oscar-winning musical landmark. Adapted by Ernest Lehman from the Broadway production, we are introduced to two rival street gangs: the Jets, second-generation American teens, and the Sharks, Puerto Rican immigrants. When the war between the Jets and Sharks reaches a fever pitch, Jets leader Riff (Russ Tamblyn) decides to challenge Tony (Richard Beymer) and his Sharks to one last “winner take all” rumble.
