Tony and Maria

West Side Story

''Two street gangs, both alike in dignity, in fair New York City, where we lay our scene. From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes a pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life.'' Okay, the Romeo and Juliet similarities don't go quite that far, but you get the gist. Tony (Richard Beymer) loves Maria (Natalie Wood) even though he's not supposed to. Lots of fighting and musical production numbers ensue. Heartbreak all around. And...scene. —Marc Bernardin
