Westside Story takes on New Zealand

It's a Romeo and Juliet-inspired tale of love between members of two rival gangs in 1950s New York City.

Broadway production Westside Story opened up in Auckland's Civic theatre last night. 

And it's been billed as one of Broadway's greatest musicals for a reason.

The international production delivered in all ways. It was passionate, entertaining, and emotional.

It features some world class performers and has toured Paris, Beijing, Tokyo, London, and now down-under.

It's safe to say it left our hosts Amanda and Aziz with little sleep but a lot of excitement in the AM.
