What happens when you cross classical theatre characters with modern pop music and a concept from the mind of a sitcom writer? You get & Juliet, the hit musical from London that gives Juliet, of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, a new, empowering story. Get & Juliet tickets on TodayTix.
Come for the hits, stay for the humor and heart. & Juliet boasts the song catalog of five-time Grammy-winning Swedish songwriter and music producer Max Martin, who's written or co-written 22 Billboard number 1 hits for pop stars like Katy Perry, Britney Spears, the Backstreet Boys, and Kelly Clarkson. Expect to hear all these at & Juliet in New York, together with an original story by David West Read, a writer on the Emmy-winning comedy series Schitt's Creek. He's written Juliet a coming-of-age tale that doesn't end when Romeo's story does, but takes her — and the audience — on a whirlwind adventure beyond the walls of Verona. Anyone of any age who's had a dream, fallen in love, or had to figure out (or is figuring out) who they want to be will see themselves in & Juliet.
In the & Juliet musical, Shakespeare’s wife, Anne Hathaway, decides she doesn’t like the ending her husband is writing for Romeo & Juliet, and instead proposes her own. Coming up with the story as she goes along, Hathaway spins an entirely original tale of a Juliet who decides not to kill herself after losing Romeo. Instead, she escapes Verona (against her parents’ wishes) and gathers her friends for a journey of self-discovery to Paris.
& Juliet brings together real-life figures (Shakespeare and Anne), familiar faces from Romeo & Juliet (like the Capulets and the Nurse), and new characters (like Juliet’s friends May, April, and Francois). Together, they bring to life a classic tale for the modern day, with a fresh reimagining of Juliet’s life independent of Romeo.
We’re confident you’ll have a blast at this fun, feel-good musical people are calling this year’s Mamma Mia! Once you’ve seen & Juliet, you’ll want to see it, baby, one more time (or more). Get tickets to & Juliet on Broadway now.
& Juliet already has a proven record of success across the pond. The musical had a hit-making 2019 world premiere in London, where it’s still running. The show received nine Olivier Award nominations, including Best New Musical, and a record-breaking 13 nominations at the WhatsOnStage Awards there. The show also made a star of its Juliet, Miriam-Teak Lee, who won an Olivier Award and a WhatsOnStage Award for her performance.
& Juliet's North American premiere was in Toronto, Canada in summer 2022, with a new cast. Only one London cast member — Melanie La Barre as the Nurse — traveled across the pond with the musical, and she and the entire Toronto cast are also in & Juliet on Broadway.
