& Juliet offers a joyous new version of the most famous love story ever told. What if Juliet's famous ending was really just her beginning? What if she decided to choose her own fate? The hilarious new musical follows Juliet's sensational journey of self-discovery and second chances, told through some of the most glittering pop anthems of the last three decades. & Juliet soars with the music and lyrics of Max Martin, including such worldwide favorites as "...Baby One More Time," "Since U Been Gone," "Roar," "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)," "Love Me Like You Do," "Can't Feel My Face," and the brand new pop anthem, "One More Try," all newly arranged for the stage by Tony® and GRAMMY® Award-winning musical supervisor/orchestrator/producer Bill Sherman (Hamilton, In The Heights) and with musical direction by GRAMMY® Award winning producer/composer/multi-instrumentalist Dominic Fallacaro.
& Juliet, produced by Max Martin, Tim Headington, Theresa Steele Page, Jenny Petersson and Martin Dodd, wrapped a limited season at Manchester Opera House last month to overwhelmingly positive audience reactions, and began performances last week at London's Shaftesbury Theatre, with opening night on November 20th. Tickets are available now HERE.
A timely and timeless tale of one independent young woman, & 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. Brought to life by an award-winning creative team in an explosive fusion of styles, & Juliet stars Miriam-Teak Lee (Hamilton, On The Town) as Juliet alongside a host of performers who have headlined some of the most celebrated shows of recent years, including two-time Olivier Award winner David Bedella (Jerry Springer: The Musical, In The Heights), Cassidy Janson (Chess, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical); Oliver Tompsett (Kinky Boots, Wicked); Arun Blair-Mangat (Angels in America); Melanie La Barrie (Wicked, Matilda); Jordan Luke Gage (Bat Out of Hell), and Tim Mahendran (Spring Awakening). & Juliet is directed by Luke Sheppard (In The Heights) with a book by David West Read (Schitt's Creek), electrifying choreography from Jennifer Weber (The Hip Hop Nutcracker), stunning set design from Soutra Gilmour, costume design by Paloma Young, video/projection design by Andrzej Goulding, sound design by Gareth Owen, and lighting design by Howard Hudson.
Second only to John Lennon and Paul McCartney for the most-ever #1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100, Max Martin is the groundbreaking songwriter and producer of some of the biggest pop anthems of the last three decades - recorded by artists including Backstreet Boys, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Katy Perry and Ariana Grande. & Juliet marks the first musical production from Max, who serves not just as musical collaborator with his extensive catalogue, but as producer overseeing all aspects of the development. He is the winner of five GRAMMY® Awards (including 2015's "Producer of the Year, Non-Classical"), an 11x ASCAP Pop Music Awards "Songwriter of the Year," an Academy Award and Golden Globe Award nominee, and 2017 Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee.
"& Juliet (Original London Cast Recording)" continues Atlantic Records' recent string of landmark Original Cast Recordings, including 2015's GRAMMY® Award-winning, chart-topping milestone, "Hamilton (Original Broadway Cast Recording)" - currently the best-selling cast album of all time with 5x platinum certification - and 2017's "Dear Evan Hansen (Original Broadway Cast Recording)," along with "Hamilton," one of only seven cast albums to reach the top 20 of the Billboard 200 in the last 50 years.
