Watch the Cast of the & Juliet Tour Perform on Britain’s Got Talent

Fans of musical theatre are in for a treat as the cast of the UK and Ireland tour of & Juliet make a dazzling appearance on Britain’s Got Talent. The performance offers a sneak peek into the vibrant production that has already captivated audiences in London’s West End and on Broadway.

After a successful run at the Shaftesbury Theatre from 2019 to 2023 and its current Broadway residency at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre, & Juliet is set to open at Manchester’s Opera House before embarking on a tour across various venues. The musical, directed by Luke Sheppard, reimagines the classic Shakespearean tale by asking what might have happened if Juliet had chosen to live instead of dying for Romeo.

The production features a pop-infused soundtrack with iconic hits by Max Martin, including Britney Spears’ …Baby One More Time and Katy Perry’s Roar. The book is written by David West Read, with choreography by Jennifer Weber and set design by Soutra Gilmour. Costume design is by Paloma Young, and the musical supervision, orchestration, and arrangements are by Bill Sherman.

The creative team also includes Howard Hudson (lighting design), Gareth Owen (sound design), Andrzej Goulding (video and projection design), Suzy Barrett (hair, wig, and makeup design), Dominic Fallacaro (musical direction, additional arrangements, and orchestrations), and Stuart Burt (casting direction).

The cast features Gerardine Sacdalan as Juliet, Matt Cardle as Shakespeare, Lara Denning as Anne, Sandra Marvin as Angelique, Jack Danson as Romeo, Kyle Cox as Francois, and Jordan Broatch as May. Dr. Ranj Singh is set to play Lance. Also appearing are Michael Nelson as Henry, Liam Morris as Richard, Jade Johnson as Nell/Lady C, Rosie Singha as Judith, Nia Stephen as Imogen, Psalms-Nissi Myers-Reid as Lucy/Alternate Juliet, Andilé Mabhena as Augustine/Dance Team, Harriet Caplan-Dean as Eleanor, Alexander Kranz as Lennox, Aaron Shales as Gregory/Dance Team, Toni Paise as Violet, and Samuel Wilson-Freeman as Fletcher/Resident Director and Dance Captain.
