The company of & Juliet stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon November 28 to perform "Problem/Can't Feel My Face". Check out the high energy mashup performance above!
Transferring from the West End (via Toronto), & Juliet uses songs written by Grammy winner Max Martin to rewrite the ending of Shakespeare's heroine Juliet. The show opened on Broadway at the Stephen Sondheim theatre November 17, after releasing a cast recording October 28.
Lorna Courtney stars as the titular Juliet, and is joined by Tony winner Paulo Szot as Lance, Tony nominee Stark Sands as Shakespeare, Betsy Wolfe as Anne Hathaway, Justin David Sullivan as May, Ben Jackson Walker as Romeo, Philippe Arroyo as Francois, and original U.K. cast member Melanie La Barrie as Nurse.
Rounding out the company are Brandon Antonio, Michael Iván Carrier, Nico DeJesus, Nicholas Edwards, Virgil Gadson, Bobby "Pocket" Horner, Joomin Hwang, Megan Kane, Alaina Vi Maderal, Daniel J. Maldonado, Joe Moeller, Brittany Nicholas, Veronica Otim, Jasmine Rafael, Matt Raffy, Tiernan Tunnicliffe, and Rachel Webb.
Featuring a book by Emmy winner David West Read (Schitt's Creek), the score of songs—all written by Grammy winner Max Martin—is filled with familiar pop songs from the last three decades, such as “Since U Been Gone,” “Roar,” “Baby One More Time,” “Larger Than Life,” “That’s The Way It Is,” and “Can’t Stop the Feeling." The musical already released its original Broadway cast recording—including a bonus track featuring leading lady Lorna Courtney dueting with three-time Kelly Clarkson on "Since U Been Gone"—October 28 to coincide with the beginning of previews.
