‘& Juliet’ is a modern telling of the greatest love story of all time, Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet… remixed! This fun comedy musical asks the question: what if Juliet’s famous ending never took place and instead her life really began? With popular music from Max Martin and a book written by David West Read, this jukebox musical premiered at the Manchester Opera House in September 2019, and transferred to the West End in November that year. Not long after, ‘& Juliet’ had it’s Broadway debut with previews in October 2022 ahead of it’s official opening the following month.
The story follows William Shakespeare and his wife, Anne Hathaway, as they debate and rewrite one of his most famous works. This version sees Juliet Capulet leaving Verona with her nurse to find a new life in Paris instead of her story ending in the classic way we all know. As Anne and William argue over what destiny awaits Juliet, we see her story intertwine with all sorts of characters, some in a new light and others we have never met. What happens when Romeo returns from the dead to declare his love for her and win her back? ‘& Juliet’ is an entertaining jukebox musical that hinges on taking charge of one’s own destiny.
‘Romeo Who?’ is a quote we felt was integral to capturing this blast of a show! With inspiration from Juliet’s iconic yellow headphones, the hot pink so well-known with this show, and the memorable Romeo & Juliet sign from the set combined with this quote, this pin is the perfect way to celebrate this musical!
