Critics’ Reviews

This fresh, bold production is so exciting it makes you ache with pleasure. It's both airborne and transcendent.

Review by John Lahr from The New Yorker

Having the Sharks speakin their native tongue is brilliant! The excitement and emotional force of this revival don't need translation. It feels incredibly right for New York to have a story this bittersweet back in Times Square, where is belongs.

Review by Jeremy McCarter from Newsweek

Not just any night! West Side Story is exhilaratingly danced and sung. A one-of-a-kind musical!

Review by Peter Marks from The Washington Post

A roughed-up and gorgeous new revival. It soars. Seeing the huge cast in Robbins' spectacular dances and hearing Bernstein's majestic score played by a full orchestra is sheer excitement. This is Broadway in very fine form: standing up to face darkness head on, and unafraid to be a thing of beauty.

Review by Adam Feldman from Time Out New York

This production is enthralling, electric and taken to a level of pure physical exhilaration. The irresistible score, gloriously rendered here, remains a ravishment, with some of the most gorgeous love songs ever. It's hard not to melt into sweet agony.
