West Side Story comes to Hong Kong

Why We Recommend it

A roving tour of a hugely popular musical comes to Hong Kong, bringing with it catchy songs and social commentary that might resonate with contemporary audiences.


Set in the late 50s in gang-addled New York and inspired by Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story offers a glitzy and ebullient take on an old theme of forbidden and doomed love.

For those with a weak spot for the lively world of musicals, the production promises strong choreography and big emotions. Spectators might also draw connections between the social and race divides presented in the show with those that currently blight modern America.


When: 18 May 2017 - 18 Jun 2017 Where: HKAPA Lyric theatre, Hong Kong Academy – 1 Gloucester road – Wanchai
