“What if Juliet ... didn’t kill herself?” asks Shakespeare’s wife Anne Hathaway (Cassidy Janson) in this gloriously silly, unexpectedly poignant jukebox musical.
& Juliet, built around the music of Swedish songwriter Max Martin, takes this wry premise, douses it in glitter and runs with it. Every moment of the Luke Sheppard-directed production is soundtracked by one of Martin’s power-pop hits – songs made famous by Katy Perry, Ellie Goulding, Kelly Clarkson, Robyn et al.
Written by Schitt’s Creek’s David West Read, & Juliet is witty, too – affectionately ribbing the more icky and melodramatic elements of Shakespeare’s story.
Don't miss this opportunity to enjoy one of the West End's liveliest shows. Ticket list opens Friday 29th November, and full details of the trip can be viewed here.
