Maria and Tony fall helplessly in love at a school dance, but their love is doomed: Maria’s brother is leader of the Sharks—a street gang—and Tony is one of their hated enemies, the Jets. Their story, just like Romeo and Juliet’s, ends in tragedy, with everyone reflecting on the senselessness of it all. But Bernstein’s music—some of the most beloved in musical theater, including “Maria,” “There’s a Place for Us,” and “Tonight”—points the way to hope in the midst of confusion.
