National tour of classic musical comes to Easton Jan. 8 and 9.
"I feel pretty, oh so pretty..."
"I've just met a girl named Maria..."
"When you're a Jet..."
If those phrases mean anything to you, you may want to get to the State Theatre next month, when the national touring company of West Side Story comes to town.
The acclaimed musical -- written by Arthur Laurents (book) and multiple Tony and Grammy Award winners Leonard Bernstein (music) and Stephen Sondheim (lyrics), with choreography by Jerome Robbins -- tells the story of star-crossed lovers Tony and Maria, who fall in love in the middle of a 1950s New York City gang war.
Performances are Jan. 8 and 9 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $55-60, and can be purchased at the theater box office, by calling 1-800-999-STATE, 610-252-3132 or online at www.statetheatre.org.
