Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak


England is cautiously moving out of national lockdown due to the coronavirus epidemic, but London theatres remain closed to audiences.


The government has not announced firm dates for theatres to open in England, though a suggested date for indoor performances to restart has been given as 17 May 2021, with capacity restrictions.


Larger theatres may be back with full capacity audiences from 21 June.


London theatres are beginning to announce new show dates and we are updating our listings.


However, we advise checking theatre websites to confirm which shows will be playing in the future.

Show details

Synopsis


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


& Juliet is the irreverent and fun-loving new West End musical that asks: what if Juliet's famous ending was really just her beginning?


What if she decided to choose her own fate?


And what if she got over Romeo by running off to Paris with Nurse and her best friends on a whirlwind trip of romance, self-discovery and gate-crashing the castle party?


You know, like a normal teenager.


Shakespeare and his wife Ann Hathaway may have their own ideas but this is Juliet's story now.


So don't tell her how it ends.


& Juliet soars with some of the biggest pop anthems of the last 30 years from acclaimed songwriter Max Martin, including … Baby One More Time, Everybody (Backstreet's Back), Love Me Like You Do and Can't Feel My Face, all brilliantly arranged by the Tony and Grammy Award-winning orchestrator Bill Sherman.


Brought to life by an award-winning creative team in an explosive fusion of styles, this vibrant and vital brand-new West End musical is directed by Luke Sheppard (In the Heights) with a story by David West Read (Netflix's Schitt's Creek), electrifying choreography from Jennifer Weber and stunning set design from Soutra Gilmour.


A timely and timeless tale of one independent young woman writing her own story, & 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 …
