West Side Story at IHI Stage Around Tokyo

Theater & Film

Watch a modern and never-before-seen rendition of West Side Story in a unique theater with 360-degrees rotating audience seats surrounded by movable huge screens and stages. The combination of projection, lighting, and music produce a sense of immersion which you cannot experience elsewhere.

Being the most popular musical in the world after Steven Spielberg announced the remake, this production will be the world’s first Broadway musical being performed at this theater.

The story:

Late 1950’s, West Side of Manhattan, New York. It was a time when the East Side across from Central Park was an upscale residential area, and many immigrants lived in the West Side.

During this time in New York, immigrants from around the world came for dream and wealth. They formed a gang and turned against each other. However, Polish immigrant, Tony and Puerto Rican immigrant, Maria fall in love. The forbidden love entangles many people and causes a chain of tragedy…

This is a story about the struggle for love to exist in a world of bigotry and violence.
