Romeo and Juliet

At Richard Rodgers Theatre

Shakespeare’s timeless romantic tragedy returns for a contemporary stage revival, starring Hollywood pretty boy Orlando Bloom. It marks the Broadway debut of the Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean star, who will play Montague to Tony nominee Condola Rashad’s Capulet. In David Leveaux’s modernized staging, the star-crossed lovers are divided by racial tensions (didn’t West Side Story already cover that…?), though they’ll still employ the Bard’s original language. It’s the play’s first time on the Great White Way in 36 years, so get those hankies ready.
