Shakespeare never got the chance to write a sonnet about the beauty of a mid-century Ford or Chevy, but West Side Story sure can. Set in 1950s New York City, this iconic American musical retells Romeo and Juliet as the story of Tony and Maria, who are on opposite sides of a brutal turf war between rival street gangs. The original 1961 film is famous for its blend of realistic street scenes with dazzling Broadway choreography, meaning cars and the urban landscapes surrounding them have always been integral to this show.
