When youre a Jet, youre a Jet all the way . . . In West Side Story, the gangs all here: the Jets and their neighborhood nemesis the Sharks in the back alleys of late-fifties NYC. Theyre finger-snappin tough and rowdyJDs down to their white Ts and leather. And, sure, the beatings are backed by beats composed by Leonard Bernstein, and when they rumble, the stompin is to the so-cool choreography of Jerome Robbins. But the West Side is the domain of youth struggling with a social disease thats part poverty, part parents, and part passion. West Side Story is the dizzying rush of youth that knows no bounds.
