Overview

& Juliet is one of the freshest, funniest and most feminist new musicals around: don't miss out on tickets for this hilarious West End hit.

& Juliet is a jukebox musical packed full of songs by Swedish record producer Max Martin. You haven't heard of him? Don't worry, you've definitely heard his musical output before: he's penned songs like 'Hit Me Baby One More Time' for Britney Spears, 'It's Gonna Be Me' for the Backstreet Boys, and 'Roar' for Katy Perry... and they're brought to witty new life in this poptastic show.

Reviewers went gag for this pop spectacular. The Observer's ★★★★ review wrote that "& Juliet packs a lot of fun into its sharp, witty story of self-discovery", while Alex Wood's ★★★★★ rave in WhatsOnStage said that "If music be the food of love, then & Juliet serves up an all-you-can-eat buffet of the highest standard." Tim Bano joined the chorus of approval, too, writing that "It makes you want to hunt down the inventor of the jukebox musical and apologise to them for being a bit sniffy about the form in the past", and awarding the show another whopping ★★★★★.

But what makes & Juliet so special? A big part of its appeal is its inventive story, which follows William Shakespeare and his wife Anne Hathaway as they bicker over 'Romeo and Juliet', one of his most famous plays and one of the world's best known love stories. Only Hathaway argues that there's nothing so very romantic about a woman killing herself over a man. So instead, she creates a playful plotline that sees Juliet taking charge of her own destiny, and having a lot of fun along the way.

& Juliet's talented cast bring a huge amount of energy and joy to this playful, often enjoyably silly night out. Miriam Teak-Lee is the star of the show, playing Juliet after her breakout role in the West End cast of Hamilton. She's joined by a cast of West End regulars including Cassidy Janson (Leading Ladies, Chess, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), Oliver Tompsett (Kinky Boots, Wicked); Alex Thomas-Smith (Rent, Dear Evan Hansen), Keala Settle (The Greatest Showman, Waitress), Tom Francis (Rent), Tim Mahendran (Spring Awakening), and Julius D'Silva (What's New Pussycat?, Made in Dagenham).

The creatives involved behind the scenes in creating this magical show include director Luke Sheppard, who helmed the London run of Lin-Manuel Miranda's In The Heights, alongside a book by David West Read and choreography by Jennifer Weber.

& Juliet is on at Shaftesbury Theatre, in the heart of London's West End, and is suitable for everyone ages six plus.
