“& Juliet” is setting out on the road. The jukebox musical’s touring plans were shared on the April 25 episode of “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” during which the Broadway company performed. The multi-year tour will launch in the fall of 2024.
In the tour’s first year, the musical is scheduled to play Charlotte, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.
A full tour schedule and casting will be announced.
“& Juliet” opened at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre on Nov. 17, 2022. Directed by Luke Sheppard with a book by David West Read, the show reimagines Shakespeare’s “Romeo & Juliet” if Juliet had chosen to live after discovering Romeo had died.
Set to a score of pop hits by mega-producer Max Martin, “& Juliet” features choreography by Jennifer Weber, musical supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Bill Sherman, with scenic design by Soutra Gilmour, costume design by Paloma Young, lighting design by Howard Hudson, sound design by Gareth Owen, video/projection design by Andrzej Goulding and hair/wig/makeup design by J. Jared Janas. Casting is by Stephen Kopel and Carrie Gardner.
The “& Juliet” tour is being produced by Eva Price, who is also a producer on the Broadway staging.
