&JULIET – THE MUSICAL IS NOW PLAYING @ SYDNEY LYRIC THEATRE



&JULIET – THE MUSICAL is now playing at the SYDNEY LYRIC THEATRE until 16th June 2024. Laugh-out-loud and clever heart-warming love story, of self-discovery, and is highly entertaining. This addictive coming-of-age jukebox musical, is set in London, Verona, Paris, in the year 1595, and comes with a superb show-tunes playlist of hit songs. Award Winning musical, with concert-like atmosphere, is based on the William Shakespeare play, Romeo and Juliet. Music from Pink, Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Celine Dion, Ariana Grande, Kelly Clarkson, Ellie Goulding, Demi Lovato, Jessie J, Ke$ha, Bon Jovi, Justin Timberlake, NSync, The Backstreet Boys, etc.

William Shakespeare meets his perfect cast, at the first production of Romeo and Juliet. Shakespeare’s wife, Anne Hathaway, is visiting from Stratford-upon-Avon, to see the new play. Anne Hathaway insists that The Bard must change the ending. So what if Romeo’s ending, was Juliet’s beginning? Highly Recommended.

From Goulding to Grande, Britney to Backstreet, Perry to Bon Jovi, the Swedish songwriter, Max Martin has written no less than 22 Billboard 100 number one songs for some of the biggest names in pop, over the past three decades.

Extraordinary Australian cast, starring Rob Mills, Casey Donovan, Amy Lehpamer PLUS Lorinda May Merrypor in the title role of Juliet. Also starring Hayden Tee and Blake Appelqvist, and newcomers Jesse Dutlow and Yashith Fernando. Huge fan of &JULIET – THE MUSICAL, and have seen this show, every week.

& JULIET – THE MUSICAL is directed by Luke Sheppard, choreography from Jennifer Weber and set design from Soutra Gilmour.

Lyrics by legendary songwriter Max Martin and others – pop music’s #1 hitmaker.

EXPECT – Unusual in 2024 but &JULIET – THE MUSICAL plays to prompt, and of course everyone has a wireless mic – but the director has insisted that during a three-way dialogue with singing, that one of the three actors MUST display all their emotions to the rear of the stage. Recommended Age is 8+ years and please do carefully note that this production includes, flashing/strobe lighting, loud noises, confetti drop-boxes and confetti cannons, plus pyrotechnics throughout.
