.Sunnyvale Community Players ‘West Side Story’

Before Speilberg’s remake hits the big screen this December, South Bay theatre lovers have a chance to enjoy West Side Story performed live beginning this weekend. The first production from Sunnyvale Community Players in more than 18 months, Steven Sondheim’s classic tale of love and turf war comes to life in an ambitious production involving a full orchestra, and a sharp modern update from young director Thomas Times. While the play has always remained relevant, in the context of Trump and Jan 6, it’s hard not to feel lines like “Life is all right in America / if you’re all-White in America” are especially pertinent today.
