Following a run at the Manchester Opera House, & Juliet, a new musical that ponders the notion that Juliet’s famous ending was really just her beginning, will start performances at London’s Shaftesbury Theatre November 2 ahead of a November 20 opening night.
In the new musical, Juliet gets over Romeo by running off to Paris with Nurse and her best friends on a whirlwind trip of romance and self-discovery. The production, featuring a score by Swedish songwriter, record producer, and singer Max Martin, includes well-known pop hits of the last 25 years such as Britney Spears' "Baby One More Time," the Backstreet Boys' "Everybody," and The Weekend's "I Can’t Feel My Face."
