Brittany Nicholas’ onstage and offstage roles blend together in the informal opening of Broadway’s & Juliet. With the house lights still up, ensemble members saunter onstage with mugs and water bottles in hand, breaking the fourth wall by warming up in front of the expectant audience. When it’s Nicholas’ turn to enter, she does so holding a patterned binder, her authoritative role clear as she gives notes to her peers.
Broadway is keeping Jennifer Weber busy these days. On November 17, & Juliet opens with Weber’s enthusiastically pop-y, hard-hitting choreography. Three days later, another project of Weber’s makes its Great White Way debut: KPOP.
