If you’re searching for a theatrical experience that seamlessly blends the timeless elegance of Shakespearean drama with the infectious energy of pop music, then look no further than & JULIET. This international sensation has graced stages from Broadway to the West End, and now, Singaporeans have the privilege of witnessing its Asian premiere at the Sands Theatre, Marina Bay Sands. I can’t help but express my excitement about this groundbreaking production.
& JULIET, produced by Michael Cassel Group in association with MTM/Leyline and presented by Base Entertainment Asia, reimagines Shakespeare’s iconic love story freshly and innovatively. What if Juliet didn’t take her own life and instead embarked on a journey of self-discovery, empowerment, and love? This creative twist on the classic tale sets the stage for a rollercoaster of emotions and an unforgettable night at the theatre.
The musical’s brilliance lies in its imaginative premise and its masterful fusion of iconic pop songs from the last three decades. Legendary songwriter and producer Max Martin, a five-time GRAMMY® Award winner, lends his musical genius to the show. Hits like “Since U Been Gone,” “Roar,” “Baby One More Time,” “Larger Than Life,” and “Can’t Stop the Feeling” seamlessly blend with the narrative, creating an unforgettable playlist that drives the story forward. Max Martin even gifts the audience a brand-new song exclusively composed for the show, adding an extra layer of musical delight.
The direction by Luke Sheppard, choreography by Jennifer Weber, and the overall creative team’s contributions are nothing short of spectacular. The set design by Soutra Gilmour, costume design by Paloma Young, and lighting design by Howard Hudson collectively create a visually stunning and immersive world for the characters to inhabit. The use of video and projection design by Andrzej Goulding adds a modern, dynamic layer to the production, ensuring that & JULIET is a visual feast as well as an auditory one.
Having already captured the hearts of audiences in Melbourne, & JULIET arrives in Singapore as a proven blockbuster. Michael Cassel, the Australian Producer behind the show, assures us that this musical promises a night out like no other, merging Max Martin’s chart-toppers with a fresh take on the timeless love story. It’s a promise that Singaporean audiences should not miss.
