    Confirmed last February by the Lunchbox Theatrical Productions Chief Executive James Cundall, the musical masterpiece will show Filipino fans the story of two rival gangs set back in the 1950s in New York’s urban jungle, Rappler said in a report.

    The two enemy street gangs—called the Jets and the Sharks—are composed of immigrant teenagers in the Upper West Side.

    Known to be inspired by William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, The West Side Story tells a story of the fateful love affair between teenagers Tony and Maria. It has popularized songs such as “Tonight,” “Somewhere,” “America,” “I Feel Pretty,” and “Maria.”

    The West Side Story first hit the Broadway in 1957 and was highly-acclaimed for its choreography that changed the musical theater scene.

    The West Side Story is considered by The Times as the “The No. 1 Greatest Musical of All Time.” A movie version of it was also released in 1961, with over 10 Oscar awards, including Best Picture.

    The Michael Brenner production of The West Side Story first toured London, Tokyo, Johannesburg, and Sydney.
