About the show

In And Juliet the Musical, we're invited to run away to Paris with Juliet, Nurse and her girlfriends. There Juliet is able to relish the freedom, romance, fun and self-discovery that wasn't available to her before.
Max Martin is the show’s producer as well as musical collaborator. Martin is the bona fide hit-maker responsible for the soundtrack of a generation. Only McCartney and Lennon outrank him in terms of number one US singles, and he counts five Grammy Awards and a host of other accolades to his name. & Juliet is Martin’s first musical production.
And Juliet the Musical features a book by David West Read and direction by Luke Sheppard. Set design is the work of Soutra Gilmour, costume design comes from Paloma Young, sound design is by Gareth Owen, lighting design is courtesy of Howard Hudson and choreography comes from Jennifer Weber. Bill Sherman is the music supervisor, orchestrator and arranger, while Dominic Fallacaro is musical director.
