James Corden and Emily Blunt’s musical version of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ will give you butterflies
Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet just got a musical update.
We all know that James Corden has a flare for the musical dramatics. The actor-singer extraordinaire reunited with his Into the Woods co-star, Emily Blunt, to perform The Late Late Show version of Romeo and Juliet.
In the video above, Corden and Blunt re-enact the story of the two star-crossed lovers using only the lyrics from pop music hits. The soundtrack to this musical includes songs like Bruno Mars’ “Just The Way You Are,” Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream,” and Ludacris’ “What’s Your Fantasy.”
This classic tale of woe will make you want to dance with somebody.
