Book writer and director Arthur Laurents pilots his infamous gang members, the Jets, out of lovable-ruffian territory in a revival of this 1957 classic. But the chief glories remain Leonard Bernstein’s score and Jerome Robbins’s truculent-balletic choreography. This subtly recalibrated revival is Broadway in fine form: standing up to face darkness head on, and unafraid to be a thing of beauty.—Adam Feldman
