A New Musical Featuring Songs By Ariana Grande And Backstreet Boys Is Coming To Manchester

By Laura O'Neill

The most famous love story of all time. Remixed.

What if Juliet’s famous ending was really just her beginning? What if she decided to choose her own fate?

We all know the story of Romeo and Juliet, star-crossed lovers from warring families who are inescapably drawn to each other.

It’s a love story for the ages and a tragedy unlike any other but what if we could rewrite the final scene? What if Juliet put the dagger down and decided to take a girls trip instead? In this irreverent rewrite that’s exactly what happens.

When Juliet wakes up, instead of a dagger to the heart she gathers Nurse and her best girlfriends and heads to the city of lights. She sets off to prove that she is the author of her own story and that there is life, and love, after Romeo.

Join Juliet on this sensational journey of self-discovery and second chances, told through some of the most glittering pop anthems of the last three decades from legendary songwriter Max Martin, including …Baby One More Time, Since U Been Gone, Roar, Everybody (Backstreet’s Back), Love Me Like You Do and Can’t Feel My Face.
