About the Show
A brand new musical that imagines a new life for Juliet after Romeo, scored to iconic pop hits.
Direct from London's West End, this new musical sees Juliet from Shakespeare's greatest love story decides to embark on a journey of self-discovery and adventure without Romeo.
With a book by David West Read, an Emmy-winning writer from 'Schitt's Creek,' this jukebox musical boasts a score comprised of classic hit songs by pop mega producer Max Martin like 'Oops I Did It Again', 'Since U Been Gone' and 'Stronger'.
The musical won three Olivier Awards in 2020, and remains a thriving hit across the pond to this day.
"The action unfolds in Shakespeare’s era, but its heart and head are all about today...As in any jukebox musical, some tunes are wedged in, but others fit surprisingly well...Theatregoers out for a silly good time likely won’t care as they hum along with '& Juliet'."
"The real stars here are the songs, all from the catalogue of Max Martin and his collaborators...At its best, the show just does away with logic and gives you full-throated renditions of Martin’s more insistent anthems."
"It’s not that '& Juliet' is unenjoyable – it isn’t. Somewhere beneath the bombast and repetition and overwrought-from-minute-one approach is a sweet(ish) and smart(ish) tale that gives voice to the marginalized."
