New musical & Juliet premiered a first look at West End Live 2019 on Saturday.
The brand new jukebox musical will open in Manchester later this year before transferring to London’s West End.
& Juliet is described as an “irreverent and fun-loving new West End musical” that asks: what if Juliet’s famous ending was really just her beginning?
& Juliet features a pop score by Max Martin, with songs including Break Free (Ariana Grande), …Baby One More Time (Britney Spears), Everybody (Backstreet Boys), Can’t Feel My Face (The Weeknd) and Love Me like You Do (Ellie Goulding).
For their West End Live performance, the cast performed the musical’s versions of Bon Jovi’s It’s My Life and Katy Perry’s Roar.
