& Juliet has extended its West End run and set a conditional return date.
In a social media message the production, running at the Shaftesbury Theatre, stated "De Bois Band's back on Friday 28 May!" (a reference to the boy band group featured in the show).
The return is however subject to the easing of social distancing rules. & Juliet first ran at the Manchester Opera House before transferring to the Shaftesbury Theatre in October 2019. The show has also been extended to February of 2022!
Ahead of the lockdown, & Juliet starred Miriam-Teak Lee as Juliet, Cassidy Janson as Anne Hathaway, Oliver Tompsett as William Shakespeare, David Bedella as Lance, Arun Blair-Mangat as May, Jordan Luke Gage as Romeo, Melanie La Barrie as Nurse and Tim Mahendran as Francois.
The ensemble includes Jocasta Almgill, Josh Baker, Ivan De Freitas, Rhian Duncan, Danielle Fiamanya, Kieran Lai, Nathan Lorainey-Dineen, Jaye Marshall, Grace Mouat, Antoine Murray-Straughan, Billy Nevers, Kerri Norville, Christopher Parkinson, Dillon Scott-Lewis, Kirstie Skivington, Alex Tranter and Sophie Usher.
Luke Sheppard directs the production, with a book by David West Read, choreography by Jennifer Weber, set design by Soutra Gilmour and costume design by Paloma Young.
