COMING UP: West Side Story, Liverpool Empire, 24-28 Sep


One of the greatest musicals of all time, West Side Story, is coming to the Liverpool Empire Theatre from Tuesday 24th till Saturday 28th September. The show features a brand new cast performing all of the classic songs such as Tonight, Maria and America.

With ground breaking choreography by the legendary Jerome Robbins, book by Arthur Laurents, an unforgettable score by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, West Side Story changed the face of musical theatre for ever.

Leading the talented new cast is Katie Hall as Maria and Louis Maskell as her star-crossed lover Tony. Katie has most recently played Christine in the national tour of Phantom of the Opera and Cosette in Les Miserables at the Queen’s Theatre in the West End, while Louis has previously appeared in the national tour of Scrooge -The Musical.

Djalenga Scott brings her energy and experience from Chicago, Flashdance and The Rocky Horror Show to play the pivotal role of Anita. In the rival gang, Jack Wilcox takes on the ill-fated character of Riff, Tony’s best friend and co-founder of the Jets. Jack was most recently in Singin’ in the Rain at the West End’s Palace Theatre and has also appeared in Wicked.

This bright, dynamic new cast is directed and choreographed by Joey McKneely using the Jerome Robbins full, original choreography. Joey has worked extensively on Broadway and was the former assistant to Jerome Robbins so brings with him the true essence of the original production.
