WhatsOnStage has an exclusive first look inside the rehearsal room for new musical & Juliet, based on the iconic pop music of Max Martin.

Directed by Luke Sheppard (In the Heights) the show imagines what would happen if Shakespeare's Juliet rebelled against her story and didn't die at the end of the play, carving out a life for herself instead. The show features tunes from the massive catalogue of Martin music, including Adele, Katy Perry, The Weeknd and Backstreet Boys.
