SHARKS vs. JETS: The classic Broadway musical “West Side Story” makes a stop locally at 7:30 p.m. at Embassy Theatre, 121 W. Jefferson Blvd.

With music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, the musical is set in New York City in the mid-1950s. The Sharks and Jets are two ethnic gangs who don't get along, and problems abound when Tony — one of the Jets — falls in love with the sister of the leader of the Sharks.

“Maria,” “Tonight” and “I Feel Pretty” are famous songs associated with the musical, which was nominated for six Tony Awards in 1957. It also was made into a 1961 film, which claimed 10 Academy Awards.
