The "Romeo and Juliet" of NYC's Upper West Side, "West Side Story's" original Broadway production opened at the Winter Garden Theatre with Larry Kert, Carol Lawrence, Chita Rivera, and David Winters. It was lyricist Stephen Sondheim's Broadway debut. Leonard Bernstein's score for the musical includes "Jet Song," "Something's Coming," "Maria," and "I Feel Pretty." It was Tony-nominated for Best Musical in 1957, but lost to "The Music Man."
