Snap! Crackle! Cool! Romeo and Juliet relocate to the west side of New York City and become the lovers Tony and Maria is this classic musical by Arthur Laurents, Leonard Bernstein and a young Stephen Sondheim. The year is 1957, and as summer temperatures rise, so do the tensions between two rival gangs — the Jets (Americans) and the Sharks (Puerto Ricans). What will happen at the rumble? The original Broadway show, being staged here by Atlanta Lyric Theatre, won two Tony awards but, remarkably, not best musical or best score. Listen again to “Maria,” “Tonight,” “America,” “I Feel Pretty,” “Gee, Officer Krupke” and “Somewhere.”
