The show opened last August 10, 2017, at the Theatre at Solaire. I was able to watch the show on the second day. That was a “kilig” night as the performers sing to us their hit songs like “Something’s Coming” and “Maria and I Feel Pretty”. More than the “kilig factor”, the more was the not so ordinary love story of the main characters brought to life through a majestic dance routine and astonishing songs!
It was a musical performance that shows the modern day Romeo and Juliet story with a twist! Both characters are involved in New York Street gangs. On the harsh streets of the upper West Side, two gangs, the American and Puerto Rican, on a battle for control of the place. The situation, of course, got more intense and complicated when a gang member fell in love with the rival’s sister. The love story of Maria and Tony was definitely something that we should all watch out for! Isn’t it exciting and intriguing at the same time?
