What if Juliet actually got over Romeo and the famous ending was just her beginning? That’s the question new West End musical & Juliet will ask when it comes to Manchester Opera House.
& Juliet comes to Manchester Opera House in September, starring Miriam-Teak Lee (The Stage Debut Awards winner of Best Actress in a Musical for her role of Claire DeLoone in On The Town). Miriam-Teak Lee was also one of the stars of the original London cast of Hamilton. The production features the music of hit songwriter Max Martin.
What is & Juliet about?
Romeo & Juliet … the final scene … Juliet picks up the dagger and….gets a life!
This new musical 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. 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 a riotous comic blast of fun and glorious pop music that proves when it comes to love, there’s always life after Romeo…
& Juliet features some of pop music’s most iconic songs, written by Max Martin and collaborators over a period of 25 years. Baby One More Time, Everybody, Love Me Like You Do and I Can’t Feel My Face receive new arrangements by Tony and Grammy Award-winning orchestrator Bill Sherman.
The creative teams includes director Luke Sheppard, story writer David West Read, choreographer Jennifer Weber and set designer Soutra Gilmour.
