Rachel Webb, who covers the title role in the Broadway production of & Juliet, will head the cast of the musical's North American tour, launching in September at Baltimore's Hippodrome Theatre.

Webb, who made her Broadway debut in & Juliet, has played the title role 148 times to date. Additional casting for the tour will be announced later this summer.

In a statement producers Max Martin, Tim Headington, Theresa Steele Page, and Eva Price said, "After two years as an invaluable member of our original Broadway company, we're thrilled that Rachel is leading our North American tour company. Rachel is an incredible talent, and we can’t wait for audiences across America to fall in love with her.”

Following its launch in Baltimore, the forthcoming tour will subsequently visit more than 30 cities in its first year, including Boston, Atlanta, Chicago, Charlotte, Dallas, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.

The hit musical flips the script on the William Shakespeare classic, imagining what would happen next if Juliet hadn’t ended it all over Romeo. 

Featuring a book by David West Read, the score includes a mix of tunes by Max Martin and more, including “Since U Been Gone,” “Roar,” “I Want It That Way,” and “Confident.”

The production also has direction by Luke Sheppard, choreography by Jennifer Weber, musical supervision, orchestrations, and arrangements by Bill Sherman, scenic design by Soutra Gilmour, costume design by Paloma Young, lighting design by Howard Hudson, sound design by Gareth Owen, video projection design by Andrzej Goulding, hair, wig, and makeup design by J. Jared Janas, and musical direction and additional orchestrations by Dominic Fallacaro.

The Broadway production, which continues at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre, was nominated for nine 2023 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

U.S. casting is by Stephen Kopel and Carrie Gardner. & Juliet is executive-produced on Broadway by Eva Price.

Tickets for the tour are currently available as part of each city’s season subscription packages and via group sales in each city. For the current itinerary, visit AndJulietBroadway.com/tour.
