The world’s longest-running musical, which debuted off-Broadway in 1960, concerns a wall and the two families on either side. The narrator, El Gallo, asks the audience to use their imaginations and enter a world of moonlight and magic where the two parents trick their children into falling in love by pretending to be staunch foes. The parents stage a mock abduction, setting the scene for a heroic rescue, but when the children discover the deception, uncertainties arise.
