Today the producers for the revival of West Side Story announced that the show will not be returning to Broadway. West Side Story opened on February 20th, 2020 and was directed by Ivo van Hove, and featured choreography by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. This story is still developing.
“It is with great regret that we are announcing today that the 2020 Broadway revival of West Side Story will not reopen. This difficult and painful decision comes after we have explored every possible path to a successful run, and unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, reopening is not a practical proposition. We thank all the brilliant, creative artists who brought West Side Story to life at the Broadway Theatre, even for so brief a time, especially the extraordinary acting company, 33 of whom made their Broadway debuts in this production.” -Kate Horton, Producer
