Olivier Award winner David Bedella will step into the role of Lance in & Juliet on Broadway beginning March 5, reprising the role he originated in the Manchester production. Bedella will succeed Tony Award winner Paulo Szot, who will return to the role July 16.

Bedella joins a cast including Lorna Courtney as Juliet, Charity Angél Dawson as Nurse Angélique, Tony nominee Austin Scott as Shakespeare, Betsy Wolfe as Anne Hathaway, Justin David Sullivan as May, Ben Jackson Walker as Romeo, and Philippe Arroyo as Francois.

& Juliet opened at the Stephen Sondheim November 17, 2022, transferring from its hit West End run. Picking up where Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet ends, when Shakespeare's wife Anne Hathaway comes to visit him in London, she suggests that the lovestruck teenager's story shouldn't end in tragedy. What follows is a rollercoaster of laugh-inducing rewrites and a heartening journey of self-discovery.

Luke Sheppard directs the Broadway production, reuniting his full West End creative team including choreographer Jennifer Weber, scenic designer Soutra Gilmour, costume designer Paloma Young, lighting designer Howard Hudson, sound designer Gareth Owen, video and projections designer Andrzej Goulding, and hair designer J. Jared Janas. Bill Sherman serves as musical supervisor, orchestrator, and arranger, with Dominic Fallacaro as music director. Casting is by Stephen Kopel and Carrie Gardner.

Featuring a book by Emmy winner David West Read (Schitt's Creek), the score of songs by 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."
