Catch West Side Story Before It Goes

| |
Hi Huneybees,

Rivalry, violence, blood and bluster with the cliché Romeo and Juliet-esuqe storyline, comes the high energy production of West Side Story production that's heating up the Mastercard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands.

With an all American cast, including those from Broadway, you can the authentic feel of what used to be the 1950s New York with its rival gangs of the White (The Jets) and Puerto Rican (The Sharks) youths on the streets.

A blend of theatre act with the powerful balletic choreography of Jerome Robbins against the beautiful set that's constantly moving to suit the scenes and giving not only ample stage space but also adds on to the dramatic perspective of each scene.

This production comes as a reminder in this troubled times, skin colour difference doesn't mean that we are better or stronger. Everyone has the same body features and each culture can learn and share amongst each other. 

So what if Tony and Maria are of a different ethnicity? It's the difference that drew them together, they found love, they sang of the same tunes, so the age old question - "why can’t we all just get along?"

I've always heard so much of the West Side Story, heard the songs (which I managed to sing along), but have never got to catch the movie, nor the play till this date. I'm happy that I got the chance to do so at an age where I could fully comprehend the message behind this tragic play.

Without spoiling the plot further for Huneybees, here are some of the pictures taken off the play at the media preview for your entertainment. 

The West Side Story is currently showing nightly at the Grand Theatre, Mastercard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands till the 30th of September. (You can still catch it while you can!!)
Tickets are from S$55 to S$185  and can be purchased via Sistic website.
