Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad star in this breathtaking Broadway production of the greatest love story ever told. Romeo (Orlando Bloom) and Juliet (Condola Rashad) are star-crossed young lovers whose noble families are at war. Friar Laurence (Brent Carver) helps them to marry in secret, with tragic consequences. Five time Tony Award nominee David Leveaux brings Shakespeare's masterpiece of jealousy, prejudice and betrayal to the Broadway stage for the first time in 36 years. His bold production unfolds in a spectacularly realised contemporary setting. In what the New York Times described as a "first-rate Broadway debut", Orlando Bloom's Romeo roars onto the stage on a motorbike! Two-time Tony Award nominee Condola Rashad is cast as Juliet. Together, they make a strikingly beautiful couple in Leveaux's hot-blooded interpretation. Directed by Emmy award-winner Don Roy King in stunning HD, this magnificent recording is the perfect way to celebrate the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth.
