& Juliet

& Juliet

Shaftesbury Theatre · 02 NOV - 28 MAR

& Juliet is the joyous, new West End musical that asks: what if Juliet’s famous ending was really just her beginning? What if she decided to choose her own fate?

“It's the final scene of Romeo & Juliet. Juliet picks up the dagger and...gets a life. That’s the premise behind this new musical which follows Juliet and her mates as they go on a journey of self-discovery to Paris: presumably so Juliet can get a bit of space from that whole Romeo thing. We don’t know a whole lot about this show yet but it sounds fun—and the music is a mash up of hits by songwriter Max Martin; including Britney’s “Baby One More Time”, Backstreet Boys’ “Larger Than Life” and The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face”.”

Overview

Romeo & Juliet final scene. Juliet picks up the dagger and….gets a life.

This vital new musical sees Juliet getting over Romeo by running off to Paris with Nurse and her best friends on a whirlwind trip of romance and self-discovery. You know, like a normal young woman! Shakespeare and his wife Anne Hathaway may have their own ideas but this is Juliet’s story now. So don’t tell her how it ends.

A timely and timeless tale of one independent young woman writing her own story, & Juliet is a riotous comic blast of fun and glorious pop music that proves when it comes to love, there’s always life after Romeo…

& Juliet includes some of pop music’s most iconic songs, including …Baby One More Time, Everybody, Love Me Like You Do and I Can’t Feel My Face, written over a span of 25 years by internationally renowned song-writer Max Martin along with various collaborators, and all in brilliant new arrangements by the ‘Tony’ and ‘Grammy’ Award-winning orchestrator Bill Sherman.

Brought to life by an award-winning creative team in an explosive fusion of styles, & Juliet will be directed by Luke Sheppard (In the Heights) with a story by David West Read (Schitt’s Creek), electrifying choreography from Jennifer Weber and stunning set design from Soutra Gilmour.

Additional cast and creative team to be announced.
