Directors Roundtable Backdrops

TheatreWorld's backdrops are "oh so pretty" that you'll hardly believe they're real! Perhaps the most versatile backdrop in our West Side Story collection is RED BRICK WALL. Use behind set pieces to create each specific location and set an urban tone. For street-level views of the city, consider EAST SIDE STREET - B, which includes a fire escape you can supplement with your own set pieces, or UNDER THE BRIDGE, a stretch of city streets under an elevated subway line. To pull back and show more buildings and the bridge beyond, use IN THE HEIGHTS. Jets and Sharks alike can hang out on the stoops of BROWNSTONE ROW HOMES. BROOKLYN LOFT is a versatile backdrop that works for everything from Maria's bedroom to the bridal shop with the addition of a few set pieces. Retro HIGH SCHOOL GYMNASIUM is just right for the dance in Act I where Tony and Maria meet. With TheatreWorld Backdrops behind your production of West Side Story, your opening night "won't be just any night"--it will be the start of a smash-hit run!

West Side Story Backdrops

From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the "American" Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence, and prejudice makes this one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching, and relevant musical dramas of our time.
