BROADWAY’S ROMEO AND JULIET
STARRING ORLANDO BLOOM
Tuesday 1 April, 7.55pm
Filmed live at the Richard Rogers Theatre on Broadway in November 2013, it features Orlando Bloom (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lord of the Rings) as Romeo and two-time Tony Award® nominee Condola Rashad as Juliet. Critics and New York audiences alike have welcomed the new energy and contemporary feel the production brings to the timeless story of the world’s most famous star-crossed lovers.
Prejudice. Anger. Betrayal and the chance that true love could actually conquer all. It could only be the greatest love story of all time…This dazzling new production of Romeo and Juliet is a modern take on one of Shakespeare’s best-loved plays. Staged on Broadway for the first time in 36 years, director David Leveaux brings a dynamic energy and contemporary setting to his interpretation of this eternally tragic tale. With 2014 marking the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth, Broadway’s Romeo and Juliet will appeal both to the regular theatre-goer and those coming to Shakespeare for the very first time.

If you put on a great show and a spectacle and it’s fun and people feel as if they are getting value for money, then it’s a no-brainer.
