A play within a play, & Juliet follows William Shakespeare and his wife Anne Hathaway as they rewrite and act out his iconic story of star crossed lovers Romeo & Juliet.

In the newly revised version, Juliet decides against taking her own life on finding her lover seemingly dead and instead creates a whole new life for herself in Paris.

The musical features a book by David West Read and a pop score of songs co-written by legendary music producer Max Martin ranging from ...Baby One More Time (Britney Spears) to Everybody (Backstreet Boys).

The creative team - led by director Luke Sheppard with choreographer Jennifer Weber, orchestrator Bill Sherman, designer Soutra Gilmour and costume designer Paloma Young - will oversee the new Canadian production.

In London, the show is currently playing at the Shaftesbury Theatre booking through to October 2020.
