Not only is the film directed by Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg but its based on a screenplay by none other than Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Tony Kushner.
A modern retelling of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story tells the tale of fierce rivalries and young log in 1957 New York City.

In edition the creative team is a virtual who’s who of Broadway royalty. Moreno is Executive Producer along with Kusher. The film was choreographed by Tony Award winner Justin Peck and Grammy Award Winner and conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Gustavo Dudamel helmed the recording. David Newman Anastasia arranged the score and Tony Award Winner Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie) supervised the cast on vocals.
