West End musical & Juliet will have a special “sing-along” performance on Monday 6 June 2022.
The performance will have with screens displaying the lyrics to every song and will be an opportunity for theatre goers and fans of the show to let their hair down and sing-along to the sound- track of their lives.
& Juliet contains many of the biggest and most anthemic songs of the last 30 years, including Baby One More Time, Everybody (Backstreet’s Back), Love Me Like You Do, Confident, It’s My Life, Can’t Feel My Face and the roof-raising Roar.
The show soars with the music of Max Martin, the acclaimed songwriter of some of pop’s most iconic songs and recorded by artists including Backstreet Boys, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Katy Perry and Ariana Grande, all brilliantly arranged for the musical by Tony® and Grammy Award-winning orchestrator Bill Sherman.
Luke Sheppard, the director of the production, said: “During our hugely successful run at the Shaftesbury Theatre, we’ve been reminded again and again that audiences love the songs of & Juliet. We wanted to create a special occasion where everyone is welcome to join in and have as much fun singing our songs as the actors do every night – when normally we ask the audience to leave the performing to them! A key message of the show is celebrating inclusivity through the magic of theatre, and our hope is that this event continues to open up this show to new audiences as well as those who want to experience the show in a unique way.”
The cast includes 2020 Olivier Award winner Miriam-Teak Lee as Juliet, Olivier Award winner Cassidy Janson as Anne Hathaway, Oliver Tompsett as William Shakespeare, Tim Mahendran as Francois, Alex Thomas-Smith as May, Keala Settle as Nurse, Tom Francis as Romeo and Julius D’Silva as Lance.
