Tom Holland’s Romeo & Juliet is set to transfer to Broadway following its run on London’s West End in August.

According to the Mirror newspaper, the production from the Jamie Lloyd Company will move to New York following its 12-week run at the 640-capacity Duke of York’s Theatre.

The move comes after the Spider-man actor’s return to the West End saw all tickets sell out in under two hours. Tickets were sold via ATG Tickets, with the production running between May 11 and August 3. 

The Spider-man actor has previously starred on the West End as a child in Billy Elliot The Musical. 

A source told the Mirror: “Romeo & Juliet will head to Broadway after its London run, with details to be announced in due course. While director Jamie Lloyd has made a name for his minimalist adaptations of classic texts, the headline grabber for what is essentially yet another production of Romeo & Juliet is undoubtedly its leading man.”

Following the announcement of further cast members for Romeo & Juliet, the Jamie Lloyd Company was forced to condemn the “barrage of deplorable racial abuse” of actor Francesca Amewudah-Rivers, who will play Juliet alongside Holland’s Romeo.

A statement read: “Following the announcement of our Romeo & Juliet cast, there has been a barrage of deplorable racial abuse online directed towards a member of our company. This must stop. We are working with a remarkable group of artists. We insist that they are free to create work without facing online harassment.”
