About The Show:
Join some of Evansville’s finest young performers in this
unforgettable musical production. The world's greatest
love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway
musical that is one of the theatre's finest
accomplishments. Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is
transported to contemporary New York City, as two young
idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring
street gangs, the "American" Jets and the Puerto Rican
Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate,
violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative,
heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.
Previous NEXTWAVE director, Clay Prindle, returns to take
