The upcoming West End revival of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, set to star big screen superhero Tom Holland, went on sale to ticket buyers February 13 ahead of a May 11 start at the Duke of York's Theatre. Though it has been reported that the entire run sold out within hours, there's good news for Tom Holland fans currently empty-handed: That's not entirely true.

A block of 5,000 tickets priced at £25 has not yet gone on sale. The low-price tickets are part of a program the revival is running to grant special access to theatregoers under 30, key workers, and those receiving government benefits. The tickets span the entire auditorium, including the theatre's front row. The date these tickets will go on sale has not yet been announced, but Playbill will keep readers posted.

Reached for comment, production representatives also teased additional ticket-buying opportunities by advising theatregoers "keep an eye on Romeo & Juliet social channels."

Holland, now a rising film star perhaps best known as the current Spider-Man, got his professional start on stage in the West End production of Billy Elliot The Musical, playing Billy's friend Michael and later the title role. Romeo & Juliet will be Holland's second West End outing.

Jamie Lloyd (Sunset Boulevard) is directing the production for his newly independent production company, The Jamie Lloyd Company. The revival will feature text editing by Nima Taleghani, set and costume design by Soutra Gilmour, lighting design by Jon Clark, sound design by Ben and Max Ringham, video design and cinematography by Nathan Amzi and Joe Ransom, music by Michael 'Mikey J' Asante, movement by Sarah Golding and Yukiko Masui, and intimacy coordination by Ingrid Mackinnon. Casting is by Stuart Burt.

The revival is being produced by The Jamie Lloyd Company and David Binder Productions.
