Prejudice. Anger. Betrayal. And the chance that true love could actually conquer all. It could only be the greatest love story of all time…Filmed live on Broadway and starring the British actor Orlando Bloom (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lord of the Rings) and two-time Tony Award nominee Condola Rashad, this dazzling new production of Romeo and Juliet is an adaptation of 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 of star-crossed lovers. Romeo and Juliet saw great success when it was distributed to cinemas worldwide in April 2014 and owing to popular demand the play has been re-released for Valentine’s Day this year. Leveaux’s modern take on the classic romantic tragedy will appeal to both the regular theatre-goer and those coming to Shakespeare for the very first time.
