What Shakespeare play was the basis of the stage musical and film “West Side Story”?

Answer:

Romeo and Juliet

West Side Story is a musical inspired by William Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet. In 1947, Jerome Robbins approached Leonard Bernstein and Arthur Laurents about collaborating on a contemporary musical adaptation of Romeo and Juliet. West Side Story, like Romeo & Juliet, is about forbidden love and romance across tribal barriers in a large city, amid constant feuding on both sides, which resulted in violence and death, and finally, reconciliation between the two families, which took the resulting deaths to happen.
