Royal Exchange Theatre’s ‘West Side Story’ will return to the stage in 2020!

The Royal Exchange Theatre has announced that the smash-hit new production of the much loved Broadway classic, West Side Story, brilliantly reimagined by Sarah Frankcom and newly choreographed by Aletta Collins, will return to the Manchester venue in 2020 due to unprecedented popular demand, running from Saturday 18 April to Saturday 23 May 2020.

Royal Exchange Artistic Director Sarah Frankcom said:

“West Side Story was such a radical piece of work when it was first staged and I’m delighted that our new production has caught the imagination of today’s audiences, and that the electricity of it all – the story, the music, the dance – is still so urgent in 2019. The demand for tickets has been incredible so to be able to bring the show back next year and give people another opportunity to see Leonard Bernstein’s masterpiece is fantastic. Our unique in-the-round theatre brings viewers right into the action and to be able to do that all over again with a new audience is really exciting.”

Casting for the 2020 production is yet to be confirmed and will be announced in the autumn along with further details of the production and the Spring/Summer season in full.

Tickets are on sale to members from today and the public from Tuesday 30 April 2019.
