Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad are heating up Broadway with their revival of the Shakespearian standard, Romeo and Juliet!
The Lord of the Rings star and two-time Tony nominated actress are serving us with an interracial take on the classic tale for the first Broadway production in 36 years!

Romeo and Juliet begins previews at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on August 24!
