"Tom Holland is one of the greatest, most exciting young actors in the world," says Lloyd in a statement. "It is an honor to welcome him back to the West End."

Holland, now a rising film star perhaps best known as the current Spider-Man, got his professional start on stage in the West End production of Billy Elliot The Musical, playing Billy's friend Michael and later the title role. Romeo & Juliet will be Holland's second West End outing.

The production will feature text editing by Nima Taleghani, set and costume design by Soutra Gilmour, lighting design by Jon Clark, sound design by Ben and Max Ringham, video design and cinematography by Nathan Amzi and Joe Ransom, music by Michael 'Mikey J' Asante, movement by Sarah Golding and Yukiko Masui, and intimacy coordination by Ingrid Mackinnon. Casting is by Stuart Burt.

The revival is being produced by The Jamie Lloyd Company and David Binder Productions.
