My first visit to this flashy jukebox musical inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet was in December 2019, so it was great fun to revisit recently.

Lively and empowering new musical & Juliet at the Shaftesbury Theatre is entertaining from start to finish.
& Juliet is a camp classic that’s perfect nostalgia hit for the children of the 90s, and a guaranteed hit for fans of the music – this isn’t the Shakespeare you’ll recognise from your schooldays…

Late 90s pop is always my jam so a musical that features it is always going to be a winner. The brilliant & Juliet is so much more besides as well though.
The new cast announced for new West End musical & Juliet features Cassidy Janson; Oliver Tompsett; Arun Blair-Mangat; Melanie La Barrie; Jordan Luke Gage and Tim Mahendran.
