Hey y'all,

I'm going on a quick trip to London and I have space for one more show. I was debating between & Juliet or Everybody's Talking About Jaime.

Just wanted to see what y'all think would be the better show to see.

Thanks for your help!

I'd say they are about equal with Jamie just winning out simply because it's an original that I'd rather support over a jukebox musical where a multimillionaire just gets more money...

For me &Juilet was enjoyable, but it is all spectacle with the occasional clever moment and I thought it was too long and in the 2nd act there's a bit too much badly written forced song cramming going on.

Jamie is a simple story and is heartwarming fun with some great music.

So Jamie wins out for me, but I know others will go the other way.

Correct me if I'm wrong (I haven't seen it) but I think &Juliet is a jukebox musical? So if you want to see that, I'd go with that. I have seen Jamie, and I loved it, but I will admit that as an American I was a little confused on some terms used (the bad word they call Jamie), but I absolutely loved most of the music. This may not be helpful, but I think you couldn't go wrong with either.

I haven't seen &Juliet, but I really enjoyed Jamie while in London last summer.

Go see & Juliet if you want to have a fun time.  It's a jukebox musical done well.  I saw it earlier this month and really enjoyed it.  I saw Jamie in movie theaters and I liked it as well.   It really depends on what you're in the mood for.  For & Juiet, you can probably catch the original cast (the one on the CD) before they leave.
