Tom Holland, the Spider-Man himself, will make a glamorous return to London’s West End by starring in Jamie Lloyd’s Romeo & Juliet. 

British actor Tom Holland will switch webs for poison as he’s set to return to the West End in a new production of Romeo & Juliet.

Holland teased a “big announcement” on his Instagram stories the day before and many were hoping it would be related to Spider-Man 4, which is currently in early development at Sony and is expected to go into production in late 2024

Holland got his big break by playing the title role in Billy Elliott at the Victoria Palace Theatre. His transition to films happened with JA Bayona’s terrific The Impossible in which he played the son of Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts. 

While Romeo & Juliet will (presumably) feature a lot less dancing than Billy Elliott, it is exciting to see Holland return to London’s West End. 

“Tom Holland is one of the greatest, most exciting young actors in the world. It is an honour to welcome him back to the West End,” Lloyd said of his young star. 

Lloyd is no stranger to directing big stars on the stage. He recently directed singer Nicole Scherzinger to rave reviews in Sunset Boulevard

Holland has recently been trying to somewhat transform his image. He starred in The Crowded Room and Cherry for AppleTV+, both projects miles away from the family-friendly Spider-Man films. 

Romeo & Juliet will run from 11th May to 3rd August. Tickets go on sale 13th February and you snatch one for as little as £25. More information on those can be found here.
