& Juliet has landed in London’s West End for 2020 – here’s all you need to know.
From the current West End cast of & Juliet to the latest and best ticket offers, here’s everything about the show.
& 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?
A play within a play, the musical follows William Shakespeare and his wife Anne Hathaway as they rewrite and act out his famous tale of star crossed lovers Romeo & Juliet.
In their newly revised version, Juliet opts not to take her own life upon finding her lover seemingly dead and instead creates a whole new life for herself – along with some new friends – in Paris.
& 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).
