& JULIET fever has officially hit Singapore, celebrating its Asian premiere at Marina Bay Sands. Following an acclaimed season in Melbourne, the Australian company travelled to Singapore to share a message of second chances, love and inclusivity – all set to some of the biggest pop hits of our lifetime.
To describe the response to & JULIET in Singapore would be undeniably joyful! A flurry of anticipation from local music theatre fans surrounded our arrival to their shores, with Singaporeans waiting with bated breath for their chance to witness the nine-time Tony Award nominated musical.
From the moment audiences entered the Sands Theatre, the passion for our Australian company has been second to none. Elated song after song and dancing in the aisles by the finale – fans are leaving Marina Bay Sands with rave reviews and a newfound obsession for the now iconic soundtrack!
Our Opening Night was the definition of a glittering affair – with near endless photo opportunities for guests to enjoy. With shimmering media walls to enormous neon photo boxes, audience members were emersed in the fabulous world of the production, sharing their enthusiasm far and wide on social media.
Australian fans also have good reason to celebrate, with the announcement the production will return to Australia, opening in Perth on New Year’s Eve before its highly anticipated arrival in Sydney from February 2024.
To commemorate the announcement, Sunrise followed our leading ladies Lorinda May Merrypor and Casey Donovan to New York to visit the Broadway production for the first time. Watch as they meet their Broadway counterparts Lorna Courtney and Melanie La Barrie, and receive a very special surprise involving an iconic Times Square billboard.
Tickets for the Perth and Sydney season of & JULIET can be purchased on Ticketmaster or via andjuliet.com.au.
