LIVE WITH KELLY AND MICHAEL
On this morning on "LIVE with Kelly and Michael" actor Orlando Bloom chatted about his Broadway debut in the classic tale "Romeo and Juliet" - a play, he said, that hasn't been on Broadway in 36 years.
The hosts askEd Bloom about the long and intense "snogging" scenes in the play, and he laughed, "we sometimes get applause after our first kiss because it just goes on." Bloom also discussed reprising his role as Legolas in the upcoming film "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug."

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 on Thursday, September 19, 2013 at the Richard RodgersTheatre.
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.
