West Side Story is already a huge hit telling a Shakespearian story that is reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet in modern times. With the character focus on lovers Tony and Maria and their rival gangs placed in new York City. Much like Romeo and Juliet many of the same decisions must me made for being able to live out their true love affair through the violence and hatred that is ever present from the West Side streets of New York City.
