Max Martin musical & Juliet extends its West End run
Surprise smash-hit West End musical & Juliet has announced an extended booking period through October 2020. Currently running at London's Shaftesbury Theatre, the news of the extension comes after the show managed to captivate both critics and theatregoers alike following initial lukewarm excitement.
& Juliet musical puts another dime in the jukebox!
Looks like the beat's been going strong for Miss Capulet. After opening last November to rave reviews from critics, & Juliet: Her Musical has officially announced a West End extension. Originally meant to close this Spring, the hit Max Martin jukebox musical is now booking until 3 October 2020 in an open-ended run. Tickets for the additional performances of & Juliet are on sale now.
The premise of & Juliet The Musical
Not only does the show feature covers and remixes of Max Martin's greatest hits (e.g. "I Want It That Way", "...Baby One More Time", "Roar", and more), it also remixes the beloved Shakespeare play Romeo and Juliet. What if Juliet Capulet never picked up the happy dagger? What if she simply left and got a life?
