& Juliet – the new West End musical that imagines Juliet’s famous ending as just her beginning – today announces its cast. With the music of Max Martin, the acclaimed song-writer of some of the biggest pop anthems of the last 30 years, & Juliet has previously announced that the award-winning Miriam-Teak Lee will star in the lead role of Juliet.

The production will play a limited season at Manchester Opera House, from Tuesday 10 September to Saturday 12 October, before beginning performances in London at The Shaftesbury Theatre on Saturday 2 November.
