***NOMINEE, Best Revival, Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle 2012***

dir: Oanh Nguyen; scenic: Bradley Kaye; lighting: KC Wilkerson

On the mean streets of New York City, two gangs are in a long-lasting duel. The Sharks, a Puerto Rican gang, grapple with the difficulties of assimilating into American society. The Jets, the "American" gang, want to resist newcomers entering their territory. In the midst of this rivalry, a Jet, Tony, falls in love with a beautiful Sharks' girl, Maria.

"The designs are lean and evocative, particularly Anthony Tran’s omni-period costumes..." (David Nichols, LA Times)

"Anthony Tran's costumes round out a peerless reconceptualization of this musical theater classic, one for which no superlative is undeserved. " (Eric Marchese, Backstage)

"Anthony Tran’s costumes are an evocation of time and place and expression of the characters who wear them." (Steven Stanley, StageSceneLA)
