Musical theatre fans, rejoice: alongside Miriam-Teak Lee in the titular role of & Juliet will be Cassidy Janson, Oliver Tompsett, Arun Blair-Mangat – and more!
Bringing together a whole host of acclaimed West End stars from recent years, & Juliet will reinvent one of the stage’s most famous characters – pop music anthem-style. Joining Miriam (best known for her role in Hamilton) will be Cassidy (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), Oliver Tompsett (Kinky Boots), Arun Blair-Mangat (Angels In America), Melanie La Barrie (Wicked), Jordan Luke Gage (Bat Out Of Hell) and Tim Mahendran (Spring Awakening).
And there’re also plenty of starry names in the show’s ensemble, which will comprise Jocasta Almgill, Josh Baker, Alishia-Marie Blake, Ivan De Freitas, Rhian Duncan, Danielle Fiamanya, Kieran Lai, Nathan Lorainey-Dineen, Jaye Marshall, Grace Mouat, Antoine Murray-Straughan, Kerri Norville, Christopher Parkinson, Dillon Scott-Lewis, Kirstie Skivington and Alex Tranter.
& Juliet is powered by the music of Max Martin, who’s penned some of the biggest pop anthems of the last three decades for artists including Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and Backstreet Boys. The show itself will feature numbers including [Hit Me] Baby One More Time, Everybody, Love Me Like You Do and I Can’t Feel My Face.
What happens when, in the final scene of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, Juliet picks up the dagger and… instead gets out of there? We’re about to find out in this riotous comic blast of fun and glorious pop music, arriving at the Shaftesbury Theatre on Saturday 2 November.
