Rachel Rockwell's masterful revival of Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim's 1957 musical masterpiece gets everything right. Scott Davis’s set transports us to a mid-50s New York City barrio, as do Erika Senase's spot-on costumes. But the show really belongs to Rockwell’s intense ensemble, led by Christina Nieves, Jim DeSelm, and Michelle Aravena; to a one, this talented cast embodies the passion and hot-blooded violence bubbling beneath the surface of this brilliant, thoroughly American adaptation of Romeo and Juliet. —Jack Helbig
