West Side Friday Fun

Happy Birthday, Stephen Sondheim!  Musical theater legend Sondheim was the lyricist for one of my all-time favorite shows, West Side Story.  This brilliant re-imagining of Romeo & Juliet showcased the stunning choreography of Jerome Robbins, and went on to run for 732 performances in its original production.

For today’s Friday Fun, describe the plot of your ill-fated love story.  What two groups, clans, or teams are at odds?  Who are the lovers, one from each camp?  Tell us your romance in a paragraph!  For inspiration, here’s the opening sequence from West Side Story (thank you, YouTube).
