Main productions of & Juliet

& Juliet, being a relatively recent musical compared to its centuries-old source material, has seen only a handful of major productions. Despite its youth, these productions have been resounding successes, spanning three countries on two continents, showcasing its widespread appeal. Here are the key productions of & Juliet:

2019 World Premiere:

  • The world premiere unfolded as a month-long engagement at England’s Manchester Opera House, spanning from September to October 2019. This initial production served as a trial run, akin to Broadway shows conducting tryouts in different U.S. cities before their New York debut.
  • 2019 West End Premiere:

  • Following the Manchester run, the musical swiftly hit London’s West End a month later, taking residence at the Shaftesbury Theatre since November 2019. The show has garnered critical acclaim, with lead actress Miriam-Teak Lee earning multiple London awards. Additional recognition has been received for its outstanding design, earning nominations for Best New Musical.
  • 2022 North American Premiere:

  • Originally slated for a February 2021 debut in North America, the pandemic delayed the run. Eventually, AndJuliet made its North American premiere at the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto, Canada, in June 2022. The cast featured Lorna Courtney as Juliet, Betsy Wolfe as Anne Hathaway, Stark Sands as Shakespeare, Tony Award winner Paulo Szot as Lance, and Melanie La Barrie reprising her West End role as the Nurse.
  • 2022 Broadway Premiere:

  • With the Toronto cast in tow, &Juliet is set to make its Broadway debut in October 2022 at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.
  • 2023 Australian Premiere:
