Musical & Juliet will continue to present a special concert version due to ongoing cast illness.
Remaining tickets for both of today’s (Saturday, March 14) shows have been reduced to £20.50. Those who already had tickets will be welcome to attend the full show at a later date.
The concert version of the show was first held on Friday, March 13. It followed Thursday’s evening show (March 12) being cancelled completely.
In a new statement issued this morning (March 14), producers said: “We will be performing our concert version of the show for both the matinee and evening performance today.
“Patrons who have already bought tickets for either performance today will be entitled to come and join us for one of these special shows, and to come back and see the full performance on another date as our guest.
“For anyone considering a visit to see the show today, all tickets will be available to purchase at a special rate of £20.50 plus any applicable fees, and we would be delighted to have your support.”
Earlier this week the second of Thursday’s scheduled performances did not go ahead, with producers saying they had too few performers to run the show.
They said: “Following this afternoon’s matinee of & Juliet, three cast members no longer feel well enough to perform again today. In a week with an unusually high level of injured dancers and cast holidays, this leaves us with too few performers to run tonight’s show. We have therefore had to take the decision to cancel this evening’s performance.
“We fully expect tomorrow’s show to continue as scheduled and will update further in due course.
“We apologise to patrons of this evening’s performance for any inconvenience caused and advise that they should contact their point of purchase to exchange or refund their tickets.”
Currently playing at the Shaftesbury Theatre, & Juliet is a comedy musical that retells the classic story of Romeo and Juliet by asking: what if Juliet’s famous ending was really just her beginning?
Just nominated for nine Olivier Awards, & Juliet follows Shakespeare and his wife Anne as they rewrite and act out a revised version of his tragedy.
