You're gonna hear her roar! Maya Boyd will be the next Juliet in & Juliet on Broadway, beginning performances on May 14 at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.

Boyd made her Broadway debut earlier this year in the cast of Merrily We Roll Along. In & Juliet, she will now replace Lorna Courtney, a 2023 Tony Award nominee for originating the role of Juliet on Broadway. Courtney plays her final performance on May 12.

The & Juliet Broadway cast also includes Olivier Award winner David Bedella as Lance, Tony nominee Betsy Wolfe as Anne Hathaway, Austin Scott as Shakespeare, Justin David Sullivan as May, Charity Angél Dawson as Angélique, Ben Jackson Walker as Romeo, and Philippe Arroyo as Francois.

With a script by Schitt's Creek writer David West Read and songs by pop hitmaker Max Martin, & Juliet reimagines what would happen if Juliet didn't die at the end of Romeo & Juliet. In this version, she travels to Paris with friends in search of a new lease on life and love.

The story is set to 30 songs written and/or produced by Martin, but made famous by artists like Britney Spears, The Backstreet Boys, Kelly Clarkson, Bon Jovi, and more.
