West Side Story turns 50 this year, which, when you think about it, is pretty old for a juvenile delinquent. If you’re in Boston, you can celebrate by taking in a production of the show by On Broadway, the student musical theatre group at Boston University. Shows are tonight and tomorrow; tonight, there’s also a pre-concert talk by Jamie Bernstein, the composer’s daughter.
Music director is our good friend Brett Abigaña, who somehow managed to get his snazzy website up before I did (warning: auto-loading percussion music).
Don’t worry – the actors they get to play Tony and Maria are also 50.
