There is a lot of similar story telling in Romeo and Julite and West Side Story. I like in Romeo and Julite they meet the first day and they fall inlove with each other not even knowing who they are. Same happens in West side Story Maria was dacning with Tony and they fell in love. Another way they are similar is that in West side Story Tony standed Maria brother, Like how Romeo stranded Julits counis. The other similar is in Romoe and Julte that they got married but in West Side Story they had a wedding but it was a fake one.
Romeo and Juliet: In this scene Juliet is crying over Romeos banishment for killing her cousin Tybalt.
West Side Story: In this secne Tony tells Maria that he killed her brother and that he's sorry about it. He kept saying that he didnt mean for it to happen.
