A Shakespeare classic, reimagined for the modern day, is returning to Spokane with seasoned cast members from the highly acclaimed Broadway revival of West Side Story. This Romeo and Juliet-inspired musical set in 1950s New York City is the story of two teenage lovers torn between newly found passion for each other and their loyalty to their feuding gangs: the American Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. This Spokane Civic Theatre co-production features a live score performed by the Spokane Symphony under the baton of resident conductor Morihiko Nakahara. Actors include four Broadway veterans — Matthew Hydzik as Tony, Cody Green as Riff, Eden Espinosa as Anita and Mikaela Bennett as Maria — along with 10 local actors filling out the cast.
