& Juliet – the new West End musical that imagines Juliet’s famous ending as just her beginning – today announces its cast.

Soaring with the music of Max Martin, the acclaimed song-writer of some of the biggest pop anthems of the last 30 years (Backstreet Boys, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Katy Perry and Ariana Grande), & Juliet has previously announced that the award-winning Miriam-Teak Lee will star in the lead role of Juliet.

& Juliet brings together a host of acclaimed West End stars who have headlined some of the most celebrated shows of recent years: Cassidy Janson (Leading Ladies, Chess, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical); Oliver Tompsett (Kinky Boots, Wicked); Arun Blair-Mangat (Leave to Remain, Angels in America); Melanie La Barrie (Wicked, Matilda); Jordan Luke Gage (who starred in the lead role of Strat in Bat Out of Hell), and Tim Mahendran (Spring Awakening).

The production will play a limited season at Manchester Opera House, from Tuesday 10 September to Saturday 12 October, before beginning performances in London at The Shaftesbury Theatre on Saturday 2 November 2019. Tickets go on general sale on Monday, 11 February at 9am.

The ensemble includes Jocasta Almgill, Josh Baker, Alishia-Marie Blake, Ivan De Freitas, Rhian Duncan, Danielle Fiamanya, Kieran Lai, Nathan Lorainey-Dineen, Jaye Marshall, Grace Mouat, Antoine Murray-Straughan, Kerri Norville, Christopher Parkinson, Dillon Scott-Lewis, Kirstie Skivington and Alex Tranter.

Romeo & Juliet final scene. Juliet picks up the dagger and….gets a life.

A timely and timeless tale of one independent young woman, & Juliet is a riotous comic blast of fun and glorious pop music that proves when it comes to love, there’s always life after Romeo…
