& Juliet description

& Juliet – What if The Bard's Juliet didn't die after all?

Juliet Capulet is the famous female star of William Shakespeare's romantic play Romeo and Juliet, the cherished only daughter of the wealthy House of Capulet. When she falls head over heels in love with Romeo Montague love blossoms, closely followed by tragedy. In a story that's older than Shakespeare, the city's latest new Jukebox Musical teases us with hints of The Bard's Romeo and Juliet blended with Leonard Bernstein’s marvellous West Side Story.

Apparently Miriam-Teak Lee from the original London cast of Hamilton will star as Juliet herself, and the show premieres at the Manchester Opera House in autumn 2019. Then it's set to transfer to the Shaftesbury Theatre, another whopper of a venue, from early November 2019. Both venues are larger than average, something that has the whole of theatreland gossiping. Two enormous venues booked for a brand new production? It's an unusually confident move for a brand new musical, and it suggests something special is going on.

So... right now we have an unknown musical about a subject that has been covered at least twice before. The composer is a mystery. So what's the big secret? We'd love to tell you but, like everyone else, we have no idea what's going on... yet!

What's the story? It looks like the show explores what might have happened if Juliet didn't die at the end of Shakespeare’s famous play. The plot follows her when she travels to Paris, accompanied by her besties as they all do their best to recover from the death of Romeo, her soul mate. But is it Paris, as in the city, or does Juliet flee to Romeo’s love rival, Count Paris? It's another mystery we're keen to solve.

Rumour has it the play is packed with show tunes written by Max Martin, the man who has penned a string of well-known chart hits including Baby One More Time, Love Me Like You Do, and I Can't Feel My Face. He has written massive hits for people like Taylor Swift, Westlife, Britney Spears and more, so there are no worries there, and the songs are all freshly orchestrated by Bill Sherman.

A strong creative team sits behind the mystery, including Luke Sheppard who directs, David West Read who wrote the story, fab choreography by Jennifer Weber, lighting by Howard Hudson, sound design by Gareth Owen, costume design by Paloma Young and last but far from least, set design by Soutra Gilmour.

It might be a mystery right now. But it comes with excellent credentials. Come back soon to see if there's any more insight to be had.

Who is this show for?
We don't have the details yet but imagine this new Jukebox musical will probably best suit teens and upwards.

An entirely fun show that resonates with everyone who aspires to live inclusively and who loves to kick back to some nostalgic pop tunes. The production values rounded out this energetic rock musical, leaving the audience on their feet by the end of the show.

Subverts the old story, rings in the new

Florid and fancy, with really eye-popping feats of stagecraft, and lots of humour throughout. I warmed to the characters - Ann Hathaway and the Nurse in particular. However the story doesn’t make much sense, so don’t try and work it out - &Juliet knows it’s totally silly. At the end, the band who’d been hidden from view, came to take a deserved bow.

Sad commentary on what young boys will have to aspire to.

In the Me Too world today young boys have no true role models. Within the next two generations- the population will be either gay or trans because liberals won’t allow straight marriages

Witty—won’t insult your intelligence

I had not heard of this play, but couldn’t tickets for some of the proven favorites. Fate was in my favor. I found &Juliet to be witty and funny. Clever premise for theatre. Great acting. It moved right along and kept my interest. Nice blending of past and present. Juliet finally grows up (as does Romeo). Thank you Anne Hathaway Shakespeare! I’d see it again

Definitely one of the better shows on West End at the moment. All the actors were great, and the decor and costumes were amazing.

Fun and clever

I felt like I was re-living my junior high and high school days with the amazing music and vocals—but was simultaneously impressed with how our favorite pop songs of the early 2000s were seamlessly worked into the storyline in a non-forced way. Making Britney’s “I’m not a Girl” into a song about the struggles of a young gay man finding his place in the world was impressive

Second Look: & JULIET at The Shaftesbury Theatre

by Miriam Gibson | Tuesday, November 26 2019, 08:55

& Juliet the Musical An alternative ending to Shakespeare's tragedy is just the start for this brash, silly pop musical. Like many jukebox musicals, your enjoyment of shallow, bombastic and camp & Juliet depends on how willing you are to switch your brain off and go along with a paper-thin plot and shoehorned-in songs.
