About & Juliet
& Juliet is the irreverent and fun-loving new West End musical that asks: what if Juliet’s famous ending was really just her beginning? What if
she…wrote her own story?
& Juliet soars with some of the biggest pop anthems of the last 30 years from acclaimed songwriter Max Martin, including …Baby One More Time, Everybody (Backstreet’s Back), Love Me Like You Do and Can’t Feel My Face, all brilliantly arranged by the Tony and Grammy Award-winning orchestrator Bill Sherman.
This timely and vibrant new musical is directed by Luke Sheppard (In the Heights) with a story by David West Read (Netflix’s Schitt’s Creek), choreography from Jennifer Weber and set design from Soutra Gilmour.
A riotous comic blast of fun and glorious pop music, & Juliet proves when it comes to love, there’s always life after Romeo…
