Photo Coverage: ROMEO & JULIET Opening Night Curtain Call
The new Broadway production of Shakespeare's timeless love story Romeo and Juliet starring international film star Orlando Bloom, making his Broadway debut opposite two-time Tony Award nominee Condola Rashad, officially opened last, Thursday, September 19, 2013 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. Check out photos below of the show's stars and star-crossed lovers at the curtain call.
While Romeo and Juliet is the most famous love story of all time, this production - directed by five-time Tony Award nominee David Leveaux - marks the first time in 36 years that the play has been produced for Broadway. This version of the classic tale retains Shakespeare's original language but has a modern setting in which members of the Montague family are white, and the Capulet family are black.
