The Guthrie Theater has another blockbuster on stage this summer with a fresh take on the classic West Side Story, running through August 26, 2018.

Read what some of the Twin Cities Theater Bloggers think about a re-imagined territory in New York City.

"Mark Hartman expertly conducts the orchestra to glorious heights; it's a showstopper of musicianship on an extraordinarily difficult score, and they nailed it." Compendium - Minneapolis

"It was fascinating, refreshing, poignant, and compelling." Play off the Page

"The Guthrie's West Side Story, directed by Artistic Director Joseph Haj and featuring new original choreography Maija Garcia (both children of immigrants), feels like it was made for today's world." and Spoon

"The Guthrie has pulled together an extremely well versed cast with stunning leads that are supported by an extraordinary ensemble." Brett Talk
