& Juliet announces cast recording and new cast photos!
| By Jade Ali
It’s been a big week for brand new musical & Juliet and here is what you’ve missed! The Romeo & Juliet remix that’s all about #herstory had its first performance at Opera House Manchester this week and the reception has already been insane! With the first performance comes sneak previews of the set during pre-show and bows and that’s enough to get me excited for it all. If you want to know why you should be excited for this incredible new show, then read here for my top 5 reasons following a workshop I saw earlier this year.
On the day of their first performance, however, the company decided the excitement levels weren’t high enough (they totally were!) and made the announcement that answered everyone’s prayers; there will be a cast recording! Read below to find out when the cast album will be released, and to see the new cast photos which show off their stunning costumes.

The & Juliet cast album
As you may already know this musical features the internationally rejoiced, writer Max Martin who has a catalogue of the biggest, chart-topping pop songs there are. From the likes of Bon Jovi’s ‘It’s My Life’ to Britney’s ‘…Baby One More Time’ to Ellie Goulding’s ‘Love Me Like You Do’, Max wrote them all! All of your favourite pop songs from over the past couple of decades are going to get given a new lease of life from one of the most incredibly talented casts there has ever been. This is a recipe for some heavenly harmonies and killer, upbeat numbers. Of course, these songs are going to be phenomenal live but after you’ve seen the show, there’s no doubt the new versions of these songs are going to be in your head, and you’re going to want to listen again and again. Besides buying more tickets, which you should totally do (duh!), there will be a cast album to play on repeat and play loud!
The & Juliet cast recording will be released on 20 November 2019 and it will coincide with their West End run at the Shaftesbury Theatre which will begin 2 November. You can pre-order the cast album here!
