Cassidy Janson who played Carole King in Beautiful, said that in & Juliet, Hathaway starts writing Juliet’s story as if she hadn’t died. She said ‘There are little twists and turns in the re-telling, and it’s very comedy based,’ taking Juliet off on adventures that see her to Paris. Janson will  sing the big Max Martin ballad That’s The Way It Is (a hit for Celine Dion) plus  a couple of duets.
