Delve Into the Star-Crossed Love of West Side Story 

Inspired by William Shakespeare’s tragic play about Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story touches on many of the same themes such as forbidden love, defying stereotypes, and tribal barriers/family feuding. Unlike the Shakespearian setting of Verona, Italy, West Side Story takes place in a multi-racial, blue-collar section of the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York City during a time of gang rivalry in the 1950s. 

The first Broadway performance of this American musical opened at the Winter Garden Theatre on September 26, 1957. Music for this masterpiece was by Leonard Bernstein and the lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. 

While the themes may be similar, the backdrop and style of music are vastly different in West Side Story from its earlier counterpart Romeo and Juliet. Let’s delve into the storyline and backdrops that can help your performance shine. 

The Tragedy of West Side Story

This modern twist on Romeo and Juliet is set in NYC during the 1950s, during a time of great gang upheaval. Two teenage gangs in particular – the Jets and the Sharks – compete for dominance in the New York neighborhood as law enforcement tries to keep control. 

In the middle of the violence, a love blossoms between Tony, former member of the Jets, and Maria, the sister of the leader of the Sharks. The story of the forbidden love follows a similar route as Romeo and Juliet as they find that their gangs can not accept the love match. The performance follows this love affair and is known for its exceptional choreography and lyrics that make the audience understand the tragedy that is unfolding right before their eyes. 

The production was nominated for six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, in 1958, winning two. To make your performance an award-winning, audience-pleasing show, consider some of the more than 25 backdrops that can make your show spring to life. Being set in NYC, many of the backdrops show a classic look of the Big Apple including scenes that are near bridges, at night under the stars, in back alleys, and on the streets of the city that never sleeps.

Setting the Stage For Cats The Musical 

The musical Cats is one of musical theater’s longest running and successful shows in both the United Kingdom and here in the States. As of 2022, Cats was ranked the fifth-longest-running New York City Broadway show, having played for 18 years and 7,485 performances. It was also the seventh-longest-running London West End show where it played for 21 record-breaking years and almost 9,000 performances. 

Not only was Cats a staple in the theater community for decades, it won many awards here and abroad. The production received eleven Tony Award nominations, out of which it won seven: Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical (T. S. Eliot), Best Original Score (Andrew Lloyd Webber and T. S. Eliot), Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical (Betty Buckley), Best Direction of a Musical (Trevor Nunn), Best Costume Design (John Napier), and Best Lighting Design (David Hersey).

Across the pond, the musical also garnered six Laurence Olivier Award nominations, winning two awards: Best New Musical and Outstanding Achievement in a Musical (Gillian Lynne).

Given its popularity and long-standing reputation as a musical mastermind on stage, it is no wonder it has become a favorite of community theaters and private theater groups. If your organization is planning a showing of Cats, here are some of our backdrops that can help you set the stage for a successful run! 

CatsBackground on the Story of Cats 

The story of Cats chronicles the lives of a tribe of cats called the Jellicles. The entire thrust of the performance revolves around the idea that the cats must decide annually which one will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back reborn to a new Jellicle life.

Throughout the show, the audience meets several cats who tell their stories and give their best pitches as to why they should be chosen. Some seem as if they don’t need to be reborn while others don’t seem to give a good reason as to why they should be chosen. In the end, the former glamour cat turned disheveled outcast, Grizabella, is chosen by Deuteronomy to receive the prized additional life. Her rendition of Memory makes the other cats who refused to accept her think twice. 

One of the overarching themes of the musical involves the idea of accepting one another despite our differences in appearance. Audiences see this as the cats, who once judged Grizabella due to her appearance, eventually see her for who she is and choose her as the one to be reborn. 

Backdrops for Cats 

Most of the musical takes place in a London junkyard where the cats congregate both during the day and in the late evenings. Here are some of the most popular backdrops for this performance in our inventory.

It ran for 198 performances before going on tour across the United States and the United Kingdom.

What’s the Difference Between Broadway & Off Broadway? 

What constitutes a theater being distinguished as Broadway, Off Broadway, or even Off-Off Broadway? Is it the cost? Quality of the show? Location to the famous thoroughfares of Broadway Marquis, and Winter Garden in New York City? 

The answer is actually, none of the above. 

With professional theaters in every major city across our nation, how does one determine whether a show or musical is considered a Broadway or Off Broadway show? It’s surprisingly a simple answer having to do with seating. 

What Determines A Broadway Theater? 

There are about 41 Broadway Theaters in New York City. These theaters include a seating capacity of 500 or more and reside on Broadway Street, West 40th Street to West 54th Street, and Sixth Avenue to Eighth Avenue.

Historically, the classification of being a “Broadway show” was much different when the theater scene began back in the 1700s. In the decades following the Civil War, the theaters of New York moved to Midtown Manhattan where a grouping of ornate buildings were later dubbed the “Great White War” by theatergoers.

Broadway Theaters and shows have strict guidelines, including being located in the theater district and abiding by the Actors’ Equity’s Broadway production contracts. According to Broadway Direct, “Broadway productions are required to employ union members unless special arrangements are made, usually requiring the stamp of approval from the specific union that addresses that particular area of expertise.”

Broadway theaterThe cost of ticket prices are generally higher in a Broadway production and the cost of producing the shows are greater as well. According to Tours By Foot, “Musicals on Broadway typically have an average initial cost of $9.6 million and for Off-Broadway musicals $1 million.” However, their prime location and luxurious productions often attract many tourists.

Where Can I See Broadway Shows?

With 41 Broadway Theaters in New York City, there are many places to see a professional Broadway show. Some of these theaters include Al Hirschfeld Theater, Belasco Theater, Gershwin Theater, Lena Horne Theater, and the Richard Rodgers Theater.

You’ll find all of these 41 theaters between 41st Street and 54th between Sixth Avenue and Ninth Avenue in Manhattan. Lincoln Center’s Vivan Beaumont Theater is the only exception, located on 65th Street.

From plays to musicals, each Broadway Theater has its own selection of shows. Check out the popular musical Hamilton at the Richard Rodgers Theater or the sing-along to Moulin Rouge! The Musical at the Al Hirschfeld Theater. If you’re interested in seeing a play, head to Circle in the Square Theater for An Enemy of the People or catch Mother Play at Helen Hayes Theater. With the variety of plays and musicals in these Broadway Theaters, you’ll find a show that is perfect for you.

What Determines Off Broadway Theaters?

There are about 60 Off-Broadway Theaters in New York City. They typically hold seating for 99-499 people

Historically, the Off-Broadway movement began in the 1950s when theatergoers were disturbed by the high price of a ticket to see a show or musical. Theater lovers were looking for a less expensive venue to see shows. As a result, some of these Off-Broadway venues have become the birthplace of some wonderfully experimental shows that have delighted audiences for years.

Compared to Broadway, Off-Broadway Theaters have a mix of commercial and non-profit spaces. Only Broadway shows are eligible for Tony Awards while both can be nominated for Drama Desk Awards. However, only Off-Broadway can be nominated for Obie Awards, which celebrate the best in only Off-Broadway plays and musicals. In special instances, shows that begin Off-Broadway eventually move onto Broadway, with Hamilton and The Band’s Visit as examples.

Broadway vs off-broadway seatings

Where Can I see Off-Broadway Shows?

You’ll find many of the 60 Off-Broadway theaters in Greenwich Village in New York City. Some of the theaters include 30 Wall Street, Cherry Lane Theater, Classic Stage Company, and New World Stages.

There’s a variety of shows to choose from like musicals and plays. Enjoy classic fun musicals like Little Shop of Horrors at Westside Theater or Titanique at the Daryl Roth Theater. If you’re looking for a play, check out The Effect located at The Shed, or The Play That Goes Wrong at New World Stages. Off-Broadway theater has many unique types of shows for you to enjoy!

What Determines an Off-Off-Broadway Theater?

Off-Off-Broadway Theaters hold under 99 people. There are around 120 Off-Off Broadway Theaters all around New York City. These kinds of shows will have cheaper ticket prices, and you’ll have more chances to see the actors after the show ends. They are often avant-garde and experimental pieces that don’t fit the traditional play or musical genre.

Where Can I see Off-Off-Broadway Shows?

Choose between 120 Off-Off-Broadway shows in New York City alone! Like Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, you’ll find a variety of selections around the theater district.

Explore Neverland with a Peter Pan Performance 

If you’ve ever grown weary of the responsibilities of adult life, you will be able to relate to the story of Peter Pan and his friends, the Lost Boys. 

The musical adaptation of this play was made possible by J. M. Barrie’s 1904 play of the same name and Barrie’s novelization of it, Peter and Wendy. The story chronicles the adventures of the Darling children of London, England – Wendy, Michael and John – as well as the mischievous and mysterious boy, Peter Pan, who lives in a magical land called Neverland. When their paths cross, they travel to faraway places, learn the joys of childhood, the evils of pirates like Captain Hook and the yearning to never grow up. 

The Story Behind Peter Pan 

The story of Peter Pan is a classic tale of the innocence of youth and the desire to never grow up or take on the responsibilities of adulthood. The story explores the world of fairies, pirates, and orphans while giving the audience robust main characters to fall in love with as they navigate childhood into young adulthood. 

Peter Pan is a magical young boy who lives a carefree life but without a mother to care for him. He lives in a special place called Neverland with other orphaned children called the Lost Boys. While he may avoid the responsibilities of the real world and enjoy the wonder of childhood, he is also void of a family to love him. 

When he meets the Darling children in their nursery room one evening, he plans to take them to Neverland where Wendy can be their surrogate mother and care for him and all the Lost Boys. The Darlings initially enjoy their time with Peter and the Lost Boys flying and playing on the island and in the underground hideout, ventually, they find that the scary pirates and Captain Hook may be too much for them to take. After all, Captain Hook is out for revenge as Peter is the one responsible for cutting off his hand and feeding it to an alligator who follows the Captain around. 

In the end, the Darlings and the Lost Boys decide to return to London where the Darling parents adopt all the children and enjoy talking about their adventures. Meanwhile, Peter decides to remain in Neverland and refuses to ever grow old.

Scenes & Backdrops for Peter Pan

The story of Peter Pan begins in London in the Darling family home where the children play and sleep. Peter begins his relationship with the Darlings by showing them how he flies and introducing Tinker Bell to the children. 


This Nursery Backdrop #0243 depicts a child or infant’s bedroom with toys on the floor, a chandelier, an open window, and an ornate ceiling. It is the perfect backdrop for the Darling children’s bedroom right down to the windows in which Peter Pan first appears. 

The London rooftops are a main focus as the Darling children take their first flight with Peter Pan and travel from London to Neverland. This backdrop, European Rooftop Backdrop #2516 shows a London rooftop with Victorian chimneys, St Paul’s Cathedral and a purple sky.

This Neverland Backdrop #2590 shows the island of Neverland with Captain Hook’s ship, waterfalls, mountains and a blue sky. This backdrop would be suitable for the time that the Darlings visit with Peter Pan and the Lost Boys. 

The scenes with Captain Hook, the alligator with the ticking clock and the pirate ship would do well with this Pirate Ship Deck Backdrop # 2583. It depicts an old wooden ship deck with canvas sails, cannons, ropes and pulleys, and Captain’s quarters showing pink and purple sky, sunset and ocean.

Upon crash landing her home on top of a witch, Dorothy meets the Witch of the North who thanks her for killing her sister, the Witch of the East. She also meets the inhabitants of Oz called Munchkins who advise her to follow the yellow brick road to the Wizard who may be able to get her back to Kansas. 

As she begins her trip to see the Wizard, she encounters three characters who join her on the journey – a cowardly Lion, a Scarecrow who longs for brains, and a Tinman who yearns for a heart. The group sets off to see the Wizard as they navigate their own challenges along the route. 

Upon finding the Emerald City, where the Wizard resides, they realize that even without his help, they are able to use their own strengths to help each other.

My fair lady

Exquisite My Fair Lady Backdrops 

The musical My Fair Lady chronicles the lessons of Professor Henry Higgins as he attempts to educate and culturally transform Eliza Doolittle into a proper-speaking lady of England. Their lessons allow us to explore social themes that are still important in our society today. These themes include social discrimination and linguistic profiling. 

The Story of My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle, a young woman who hails from East London and possesses a dialect that is described as cockney, finds herself in speech lessons with an overconfident and somewhat pompous Professor Henry Higgins. He makes it his goal to rid her of the cockney dialect that is common to working-class or middle-class Londoners during the 1950s. 

The social experiment to teach the “proper” way to pronounce words takes her out of her middle-class lifestyle and has her attending horse races and balls that the upper class or London elite attend. 

Sadly, Professor Higgins and his trusty side-kick, Colonel Pickering, end up making Eliza feel less than human as they make strides toward transforming her. Eventually, she flees from the Professor who begins to understand that he is, indeed, in love with Eliza. 

Some of the more popular musical numbers in My Fair Lady include “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly,” “The Rain in Spain,” and “I Could Have Danced All Night.” This beloved musical is based upon George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion and with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe.

Backdrops for My Fair Lady 

London is the main setting of the musical and the specific locations within the city include the East London streets and tenements, Professor Higgins’ study, the Opera set, and the garden. Here are some of the backdrops we offer that can help set your performance of My Fair Lady

This option, called Higgins Study with Backing Backdrop #0382 provides specifications for a staircase that can be built in the back of the two backdrops. 

The Ballroom Backdrop

The musical shows her journey to understanding her self-worth as well as a deep understanding of how the law can help others. During her time at Harvard, Elle befriends some very unlikely characters including a manicurist named Paulette and an accused murderer, Brooke Windham, whom Elle is determined to prove innocent.
