Go "West": The tour of the smash hit Broadway revival of "West Side Story" is at the State Theatre Center for the Arts, 453 Northampton St. Easton, for two performances, including a final performance, 7:30 p.m. Jan. 9. Tony Award-winning librettist Arthur Laurents' Broadway direction is recreated for the tour by David Saint, the Associate Director on Broadway. The original Jerome Robbins' choreography is reproduced by Tony Award-nominee Joey McKneely. The Bernstein and Sondheim score features classics of the American musical theater: "Tonight," "America," "I Feel Pretty" and "Somewhere." The show was written by three theatrical luminaries: two-time Tony Award winner Laurents (book) and multiple Tony and Grammy Award winners Leonard Bernstein (music) and Stephen Sondheim (lyrics) in his Broadway debut. The musical features scenic designs by James Youmans, costumes by Tony Award nominee David C. Woolard, lighting by Tony Award winner Howell Binkley and sound design by Peter McBoyle. "West Side Story" is recommended for ages 13-plus. Parental guidance is suggested. Tickets: statetheatre.org, 1-800-999-STATE, 610-252-3132
