Tom Holland made his stage debut as the title role in Billy Elliot The Musical at the West End’s Victoria Palace Theatre, and has gone on become a major Hollywood star, primarily for his iconic portrayal of Peter Parker in the box office record-breaking franchise Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home and Spider-Man: No Way Home.

The production is described as “Jamie Lloyd’s pulsating new vision of Shakespeare’s immortal tale of wordsmiths, rhymers, lovers and fighters”.

Joining Jamie Lloyd in the creative team will be: Text edited by Nima Taleghani; Set and Costume Design: Soutra Gilmour; Lighting Design: Jon Clark; Sound Design; Ben and Max Ringham; Video Design and Cinematography: Nathan Amzi and Joe Ransom; Composer: Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante; Casting Director: Stuart Burt CDG; Movement Directors: Sarah Golding & Yukiko Masui (SAY); Intimacy Coordinator: Ingrid Mackinnon; Associate Director: Jonathan Glew; and Associate Designer: Rachel Wingate.

Romeo & Juliet is produced by The Jamie Lloyd Company and David Binder Productions, and is the first production since Jamie Lloyd broke away from ATG Productions to forge his own production company.

The involvement of Binder, who is the former Artistic Director of BAM (the Brooklyn Academy of Music) in New York, suggests that this production is also Broadway-bound.  

Jamie Lloyd said in a statement: “Tom Holland is one of the greatest, most exciting young actors in the world. It is an honour to welcome him back to the West End.”

Jamie Lloyd’s recent credits include his blockbuster revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard starring Nicole Scherzinger, which caused a sensation in London and wowed the critics, soon to transfer to Broadway produced by ATG; and Lucy Prebble’s The Effect, which ran at the National Theatre, transferring to The Shed in New York starring Paapa Essiedu and Taylor Russell.
