About & Juliet on Broadway

What happens when you cross classical theatre characters with modern pop music and a concept from the mind of a sitcom writer? You get & Juliet on Broadway, the nine-time Tony-nominated Best Musical nominee from London that gives Juliet, of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet , a new, empowering story. Get & Juliet tickets on TodayTix.

Come for the hits, stay for the humor and heart. & Juliet boasts the song catalog of five-time Grammy-winning Swedish songwriter and music producer Max Martin, who's written or co-written 22 Billboard number 1 hits for pop stars like Katy Perry, Britney Spears, the Backstreet Boys, and Kelly Clarkson. Expect to hear all these at & Juliet in New York, together with an original story by David West Read, a writer on the Emmy-winning comedy series Schitt's Creek .

He's written Juliet a coming-of-age tale that doesn't end when Romeo's story does, but takes her — and the audience — on a whirlwind adventure beyond the walls of Verona. Anyone of any age who's had a dream, fallen in love, or had to figure out (or is figuring out) who they want to be will see themselves in & Juliet on Broadway.

In the & Juliet musical, Shakespeare’s wife, Anne Hathaway, decides she doesn’t like the ending her husband is writing for Romeo & Juliet , and instead proposes her own. Coming up with the story as she goes along, Hathaway spins an entirely original tale of a Juliet who decides not to kill herself after losing Romeo. Instead, she escapes Verona (against her parents’ wishes) and gathers her friends for a journey of self-discovery to Paris.

& Juliet brings together real-life figures (Shakespeare and Anne), familiar faces from Romeo & Juliet (like the Capulets and the Nurse), and new characters (like Juliet’s friends May, April, and Francois). Together, they bring to life a classic tale for the modern day, with a fresh reimagining of Juliet’s life independent of Romeo.

We’re confident you’ll have a blast at this fun, feel-good musical people are calling this year’s Mamma Mia! Once you’ve seen & Juliet on Broadway, you’ll want to see it, baby, one more time (or more). Get tickets to & Juliet on Broadway now.

More information about & Juliet on Broadway

& Juliet already has a proven record of success across the pond. The musical had a hit-making 2019 world premiere in London, where it’s still running. The show received nine Olivier Award nominations, including Best New Musical, and a record-breaking 13 nominations at the WhatsOnStage Awards there. The show also made a star of its Juliet, Miriam-Teak Lee, who won an Olivier Award and a WhatsOnStage Award for her performance.

& Juliet 's North American premiere was in Toronto, Canada in summer 2022, with a new cast. Only one London cast member — Melanie La Barre as the Nurse — traveled across the pond with the musical, and she and the entire Toronto cast are also in & Juliet on Broadway.

& Juliet is a pop musical for multiple generations. A total of 30 Max Martin songs are in the show, from the ‘90s through today. From Backstreet Boys, Bon Jovi, and early Britney Spears hits; to early-2000s bops from Katy Perry, Kesha, and P!nk; to 2010s chart-toppers from Ariana Grande and The Weeknd, there are songs everyone has on repeat on their Spotify playlists.

What to watch for

  • One of the songs in & Juliet , "One More Try," is a new song Martin and Jessie J wrote specifically for the show.
  • Proper Elizabethan meets pop extravaganza in the details of & Juliet on Broadway. Elements like the costumes are inspired by Shakespeare’s era, but the choreography emulates the moves you’d see in your favorite pop stars’ music videos.
  • With David West Read attached to & Juliet , this marks the second Broadway season in a row featuring a Schitt’s Creek alum, after cast member Noah Reid’s star turn in The Minutes in spring 2022.
  • In addition to his five Grammys, Martin has won the ASCAP Songwriter of the Year Award 11 times (including every year from 2011-2018), and he's an Oscar and two-time Golden Globe nominee.
  • & Juliet is perfect for fans of Tony-winning shows like Moulin Rouge! The Musical , which also works pop music into an original, larger-than-life story, and Six , a pop-infused, feminist remix of English history.

“& Juliet” is setting out on the road. The jukebox musical’s touring plans were shared on the April 25 episode of “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” during which the Broadway company performed. The multi-year tour will launch in the fall of 2024.

In the tour’s first year, the musical is scheduled to play Charlotte, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

A full tour schedule and casting will be announced.

“& Juliet” opened at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre on Nov. 17, 2022. Directed by Luke Sheppard with a book by David West Read, the show reimagines Shakespeare’s “Romeo & Juliet” if Juliet had chosen to live after discovering Romeo had died.

Set to a score of pop hits by mega-producer Max Martin, “& Juliet” features choreography by Jennifer Weber, musical supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Bill Sherman, with scenic design by Soutra Gilmour, costume design by Paloma Young, lighting design by Howard Hudson, sound design by Gareth Owen, video/projection design by Andrzej Goulding and hair/wig/makeup design by J. Jared Janas. Casting is by Stephen Kopel and Carrie Gardner. The “& Juliet” tour is being produced by Eva Price, who is also a producer on the Broadway staging.

Review: On Broadway, ‘& Juliet’ (& Britney & Katy & Pink)

Shakespeare’s tragedy becomes a girl-power romp in a cotton candy jukebox musical, featuring songs by the Swedish hitmaker Max Martin.

In a scene from “& Juliet,” Lorna Courtney is dancing in a dark pink dress. The ensemble members behind her are also dancing.

By Jesse Green

They don’t even bother to hide the jukebox. It’s right there, out in the open, before the show starts: a chrome Cyclops glowering at you from the stage of the Stephen Sondheim Theater, of all places.

Are you daring me, “ & Juliet ”?

I have done everything a critic can do to stamp out the jukebox musical. I’ve called it a cockroach , a straitjacket , a leech , a dead fish . I’ve argued that, with few exceptions, it’s a form that’s satisfactory neither as music nor as theater, let alone the combination. I’ve stood proudly, even among my colleagues, as a denier of everything that shows like “& Juliet” typically stand for.

So shoot me: I liked it. It felt so wrong; it felt so right.

This even though “& Juliet,” which opened Thursday on Broadway after establishing itself as a hit in London, trails the faint odor of carpetbagging and brand extension that makes other examples of the genre — “ Motown: The Musical ,” “ Tina: The Tina Turner Musical ” and the inexcusable “ Escape to Margaritaville ” — so dispiriting. The show’s entire reason for being, after all, is to exploit the back catalog of Max Martin, the Swedish hitmaker behind Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” and 24 other No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 since 1998.

That the songs are good to begin with — chunky, hooky, belty, dancy — is neither here nor there; they generally are, in shows like this, or there would be no audience to pander to. Also par for the course is the way “& Juliet” wedges them into unlikely contexts, aiming for laughs that are little more than Pavlovian reactions to anticipated familiarity.

What saves “& Juliet” from being a lowest-common-denominator corporate byproduct is something else, something I never expected: wit.

The wit operates on many levels in the director Luke Sheppard’s super-poppy production, including hilarious hybrid Elizabethan costumes (by Paloma Young) that feature a codpiece the size of a snapping turtle, cotton-candy lighting (by Howard Hudson) and playful sets (by Soutra Gilmour) situating the story in a century somehow combining the 16th and ours.

But that’s just the surface; more important are some fundamental choices about what a jukebox can and should be. For one thing, “& Juliet” is not — like “Jersey Boys” and “ The Cher Show ” — a biomusical, chronicling artists’ ups and downs no matter how jimmied or flat-out falsified. Martin having no taste for the spotlight , it instead opts for an original story, if you can consider a reboot of “Romeo and Juliet” original. Making that story a fable — not unlike “ Head Over Heels ,” the Go-Go’s romp from 2018 — smartly relieves it of the pressure of reality.

But the book, by David West Read, aims higher than that. Because so many of Martin’s biggest songs featured singers like Perry, Britney Spears, Pink and Ariana Grande — Taylor Swift’s are mysteriously absent from the show — the choice to focus on a young woman made sense. Yet Juliet, as Shakespeare wrote her, comes with some baggage, including the fact that by the sixth line of the prologue she’s dead.

Undoing that fate became the musical’s animating principle and spine. In Read’s telling, Juliet (Lorna Courtney in a blow-you-away performance) doesn’t die but rather wakes up confused and a little emo following Romeo’s suicide. Cue “…Baby One More Time,” which she performs, still in her funeral dress but also sporting headphones and a Walkman, in front of her lover’s sarcophagus.

That’s as grim as “& Juliet” gets — not very — because, as the erasure of Romeo from its title suggests, this girl is getting a glow-up. Here the show moves into meta territory, introducing Shakespeare’s wife, Anne Hathaway, as the force behind the revision. “I mean, what do I know,” Anne (Betsy Wolfe) slyly tells cocky Will (Stark Sands). “Maybe she doesn’t kill herself just because he killed himself?”

When Will insists (to knowing chuckles) that he writes his plays completely by himself, Anne simply grabs the quill until he agrees to share authorship. To raise the meta ante, they also write themselves into the tale. “& Juliet” then proceeds to process the Shakespeares’s marital issues through Juliet’s new story, toggling between Anne’s feminist uplift and Will’s squirrelly, writerly (and perhaps patriarchal) need to complicate it.

So when the scene shifts to Paris, where Anne provides Juliet with a new boy to enjoy, that boy — François du Bois (Philippe Arroyo) — turns out to have eyes for someone else, whom Will has contrived to throw in his path. The plot now twists its way through several typical Shakespearean tropes, including comic mismatches, reunited lovers (Paulo Szot and Melanie La Barrie) and the return of yet another character (I won’t spoil who, but you can probably guess) from the grave.

The songs that illustrate these developments — “Oops! … I Did It Again” when Juliet agrees to marry François, “Blow” for a big Paris ball — are mostly apt enough, though with nearly 30 of them squeezed into the show’s 150 minutes they eventually dig an aural rut. (The sound design by Gareth Owen doesn’t help, with its arena-style reverb in a relatively small theater.) And some have the tang of reverse engineering, as when Juliet’s nonbinary best friend, May, is given Spears’s “I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman.”

Nevertheless, May (Justin David Sullivan) is a typically clever modern gloss on Shakespeare — a playwright, as Anne points out, who is “basically synonymous with gender-bending.” And if three of the couples, liberated by Juliet’s liberation, achieve surprisingly normative happy endings, the girl herself ends the show uncommitted, still trying to “own her choices,” apparently by not making any.

Most of the comedy derives from similar tensions; though “& Juliet” is jokey, and its authorship is entirely male, its feminist critique is real enough, winking alternately at Shakespeare’s assumptions and ours. At one point, Anne summarily up-ages Juliet by about a decade because she’s “not going clubbing with a 13-year-old” — nor (it goes unsaid) letting a 13-year-old marry.

Indeed, it’s Anne who provides most of the wit, not just verbal but philosophical. And it’s Wolfe’s performance — capped with a roof-raising rendition of the Celine Dion hit “That’s the Way It Is” — that gives the show its heart, an organ too often unheard from in musicals entirely focused on the ear.

I could have used a bit more brain, though; “& Juliet” sometimes seems suspicious of its own intelligence, like a nerd invited to the cool kids’ party, only to get drunk and vomit in the pool.

The overcompensation — two confetti explosions? — is unnecessary. Jukebox musicals may still be bottom feeders, but, as “& Juliet” proves, there are sometimes small treasures to be found in the murk. And as long as they’re going to keep arriving regardless, I have to admit (citing Martin’s hit for those theater critics the Backstreet Boys) I want it that way.

Moscow Metro

The Moscow Metro Tour is included in most guided tours’ itineraries. Opened in 1935, under Stalin’s regime, the metro was not only meant to solve transport problems, but also was hailed as “a people’s palace”. Every station you will see during your Moscow metro tour looks like a palace room. There are bright paintings, mosaics, stained glass, bronze statues… Our Moscow metro tour includes the most impressive stations best architects and designers worked at - Ploshchad Revolutsii, Mayakovskaya, Komsomolskaya, Kievskaya, Novoslobodskaya and some others.

What is the kremlin in russia?

The guide will not only help you navigate the metro, but will also provide you with fascinating background tales for the images you see and a history of each station.

And there some stories to be told during the Moscow metro tour! The deepest station - Park Pobedy - is 84 metres under the ground with the world longest escalator of 140 meters. Parts of the so-called Metro-2, a secret strategic system of underground tunnels, was used for its construction.

During the Second World War the metro itself became a strategic asset: it was turned into the city's biggest bomb-shelter and one of the stations even became a library. 217 children were born here in 1941-1942! The metro is the most effective means of transport in the capital.

There are almost 200 stations 196 at the moment and trains run every 90 seconds! The guide of your Moscow metro tour can explain to you how to buy tickets and find your way if you plan to get around by yourself.

Fun facts from our Moscow Metro Tours:

From the very first days of its existence, the Moscow Metro was the object of civil defense, used as a bomb shelter, and designed as a defense for a possible attack on the Soviet Union.

At a depth of 50 to 120 meters lies the second, the coded system of Metro-2 of Moscow subway, which is equipped with everything you need, from food storage to the nuclear button.

The Museum was opened on Sportivnaya metro station on November 6, 1967. It features the most interesting models of trains and stations.

Coffee Ring

The first scheme of Moscow Metro looked like a bunch of separate lines. Listen to a myth about Joseph Stalin and the main brown line of Moscow Metro.

Zodiac Metro

According to some astrologers, each of the 12 stops of the Moscow Ring Line corresponds to a particular sign of the zodiac and divides the city into astrological sector.

Astrologers believe that being in a particular zadiac sector of Moscow for a long time, you attract certain energy and events into your life.

Paleontological finds 

Red marble walls of some of the Metro stations hide in themselves petrified inhabitants of ancient seas. Try and find some!
