The & Juliet soundtrack just dropped and Mamma Mia’s wig is snatched! The West End’s freshest new musical, & Juliet is an inclusive, feminist, feel- good musical for generation yasss. It’s a bop- heavy mash- up of songs from Swedish producer Max Martin’s back catalogue, including bangers from Britney, Kesha, Robyn, P! nk, Kelly Clarkson and more.

The result: an extremely dramatic singalong musical sensation. It’s loud, proud and I’m pretty sure it’s the first major musical production to feature a trans storyline.

You haven’t heard I’m Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman until you’ve heard it like this. The show imagines that Juliet doesn’t die, and instead she kicks Shakespear­e’s toxic masculinit­y into the dirt and starts her own journey.

Miriam- Teak Lee’s vocals are breath- taking, demonstrat­ed best on Baby One More Time, Since U Been Gone and Show Me Love. The music celebrates female empowermen­t and everyone’s right to choose their own journey, and with the show about to become the best jukebox musical of the next decade, it’s well worth a listen.
