That's the opening strapline for & Juliet, the new British musical that is now in previews in London, after a successful run in Manchester. & Juliet picks up the Shakespearean story we all know and love and runs with it, turning it on its head and posing the question: What if Juliet's famous ending was really her beginning?

Seven wealthy men are sitting together in a Steam Bath at the Willow Creek Country Club after a round of golf, when they start complaining about their lives: Their jobs, their companies, their homes, their wives – nothing is right. When, one of them says: “We could all just disappear.” Why not? They've paid their dues. They have the means, and, as crazy as it sounds, these men do it. They decide to just bail out. To leave. To disappear. One of them, a bank president, arranges for half their money to be secretly left for their wives. They set a time and date, hope aboard a private plane – and without a word to anyone – they are gone. And we follow them on some of their adventures. The World Premiere Musical Steam Bath Blues will perform November 7th thru November 16th at the Abbey Theater of Dublin, 5600 Post Road, Dublin, OH 43017.

Presented by Two Tough Broads, directed by Joe John Battista and now in performances at the historic Theater for the New City, A Life In the Rye is truly an inspirational piece of theater that not only brings new life to J.D.
