& Juliet has announced a new sing-a-long performance in London’s West End.
The hit new musical will host a special night for fans on Monday, 6 June 2022.
As part of the night, the Shaftesbury Theatre will provide screens with lyrics to the songs.
Director Luke Sheppard said (via WhatsOnStage): “During our hugely successful run at the Shaftesbury Theatre, we’ve been reminded again and again that audiences love the songs of & Juliet. We wanted to create a special occasion where everyone is welcome to join in and have as much fun singing our songs as the actors do every night – when normally we ask the audience to leave the performing to them!
“A key message of the show is celebrating inclusivity through the magic of theatre, and our hope is that this event continues to open up this show to new audiences as well as those who want to experience the show in a unique way.”
& Juliet is described as an “irreverent and fun-loving” musical that retells the classic story of Romeo and Juliet by asking: what if Juliet’s famous ending was really just her beginning?
The show features a pop score by Max Martin, with songs including Break Free (Ariana Grande), …Baby One More Time (Britney Spears), Teenage Dream (Katy Perry) Everybody (Backstreet Boys), Can’t Feel My Face (The Weeknd) and It’s My Life (Bon Jovi).
You can book tickets for the special sing-a-long performance directly online here.
The brand new jukebox musical recently extended its booking period through to September 2022.
The current London cast features Miriam-Teak Lee as Juliet, with Oliver Tompsett and Cassidy Janson as Mr and Mrs. Shakespeare, Keala Settle as Nurse and Julius D’Silva as Romeo.
An original London cast recording was released in 2019, available to buy, download and stream here.
