Tickets go on general sale on Monday, February 11.

& Juliet is the joyous, new musical that asks: what if Juliet’s famous ending was really just her beginning? What if she decided to choose her own fate?

& Juliet sees Juliet getting over Romeo by running off to Paris with Nurse and her best friends on a whirlwind trip of romance and self-discovery – like a normal young woman! Shakespeare and his wife Anne Hathaway may have their own ideas but this is Juliet’s story now. So don’t tell her how it ends…

A timely and timeless tale of one independent young woman writing her own story, & Juliet is described as a riotous comic blast of fun and glorious pop music that proves when it comes to love, there’s always life after Romeo…

& Juliet includes some of pop music’s most iconic songs, including …Baby One More Time, Everybody, Love Me Like You Do and I Can’t Feel My Face, written over a span of 25 years by internationally renowned song-writer Max Martin along with various collaborators, and all in brilliant new arrangements by the Tony and Grammy Award-winning orchestrator Bill Sherman.

Miriam-Teak Lee (as Juliet) was awarded Best Actress in a Musical at The Stage Debut Awards for her role of Claire DeLoone in On The Town. She was also one of the stars of the Original London Cast of Hamilton.

& Juliet will be directed by Luke Sheppard (In the Heights), with a story by David West Read (Schitt’s Creek), electrifying choreography from Jennifer Weber and stunning set design from Soutra Gilmour.

Additional cast and creative team will be announced in due course.

Max Martin and Tim Headington present & Juliet, which is produced by Max Martin, Tim Headington, Theresa Steele, Jenny Petersson and Martin Dodd.
