I’m not sure if anyone has heard or is familiar with the West Side Story musical but when I first heard about it; I was pretty much clueless and have I not done some reading up before the musical, I probably would not have appreciated it.

Described as ‘The No.1 Greatest Musical of all Time’ by The Times, UK; West Side Story is inspired by William Shakespeare’s tumultuous love story (Romeo and Juliet), and set amidst the vicious rivalry of teenage gangs in 1950s New York.

The Plot:

The musical explores the rivalry between the Jets and the Sharks, two teenage street gangs of different ethnic backgrounds. The members of the Sharks, from Puerto Rico, are taunted by the Jets, a white gang. The young protagonist, Tony, a former member of the Jets and best friend of the gang’s leader, Riff, falls in love with Maria, the sister of Bernardo, the leader of the Sharks.

In Short:

A boy. A girl. Two rival gangs. One fatal love affair. 

The dark theme, sophisticated music, extended dance scenes, and its focus on social problems changed the face of American musical theatre forever when it burst onto the Broadway stage in 1957.

To better appreciate West Side Story, I highly recommend that you do some prior reading so that you have some context about the musical; otherwise, you might pull a “sian” face like the many new “influencers” I saw during the intermission.

Personally, I enjoyed the performance very much and having travelled to both North and South America; I really like the authentic setting of the musical.

The West Side Story musical is now showing at the Grand Theatre, MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands till 30 September 2017.

Ticket prices start from SGD$55 and if you’re a student or NSF, you can get a ticket for just SGD$35 nett!

The new multi-million dollar musical GREASE will blaze into Singapore this coming April from London’s West End after a sensational sell-out tour in Australia and it will open at the MasterCard® Theatres at Marina Bay Sands on 25 April 2014.

This rocking musical production is packed with explosive energy and it will feature a spectacular international cast, super-slick dance moves, dazzling costumes, and all those unforgettable songs from the hit movie, including Summer Nights, Sandy, Hopelessly Devoted To You, You’re The One That I Want, Greased Lightnin’ and Grease Is The Word.

Let’s go back in time and revisit some of these really unforgettable songs from the hit movie!

Summer Nights

You’re The One That I Want

Greased Lightning

We’re pretty certain that after listening to all those hits, you’re probably all greased up and ready to have a rocking good time!

Do you know?

The first London production of GREASE opened 6 months later after the show’s Broadway premiere in 1972 and the stage production was then followed by the 1978 hit movie starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, which went on to become the highest grossing movie-musical of all time. GREASE has since triumphed across the globe, with its irresistible mix of adolescent angst, vibrant physicality and 1950s pop culture.

Written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, GREASE is possibly the only hit Broadway musical ever composed entirely on guitar. The productions name comes from the term greasers, a 1950s United States working-class youth subculture. GREASE takes place in and around fictitious Rydell High, and follows ten working-class teenagers in 1959 as they experience the intricacies of love, friendship and rebellion. The story revolves around the relationship between “bad boy” Danny Zuko, who believes he is the coolest of cool and Sandy, the “girl next door”.

So dust off your leather jacket, pull on your bobby-socks, and take a trip to a simpler time as the MasterCard® Theatre is turned into Rydell High School! It will be a stage show that is truly not only ELECTRIFYING but MEMORABLE as well!

As a matter of fact, it will be a very good treat for all your older folks as they rekindle the old days!
