Juliet swaps her famous ending for a new beginning in this pop fuelled production
& Juliet is the new West End musical spectacular that, following a hugely successful launch in London, will run at Manchester Opera House from Tue 10 Sep–Sat 12 Oct. Tickets for all shows are on sale now.
David West Read (writer and executive producer of Netflix's Schitt's Creek) wrote the production which explores what may have happened if Juliet didn't die at the end of Shakespeare's original play. This female focused and fun-loving tale is directed by Luke Sheppard (In the Heights) and stars stage regular Miriam-Teak Lee (Hamilton) as Juliet.
Juliet heads to Paris with her best friends to try to recover from the death of her soul mate. Choreography comes from Jennifer Weber as performers dance to music from Max Martin, with tracks like Britney's '...Baby One More Time', Backstreet Boys' 'Everybody (Backstreet's Back)', The Weeknd Can't Feel My Face' and much more.
