Romeo and Juliet as biker and his chick?

It was just a photo op. Orlando Bloom zoomed in a motorcycle onto the sidewalk in front of the Richard Rodgers Theater on Broadway, where a new bi-racial production of “Romeo and Juliet” will be playing  starting on August 24th, 2013, opening on September 19th, and running through November 24th.

Once Bloom had arrived, Condola Rashad burst out of the doors of the theater. They kissed, they hugged, they sat on the motorcycle; they posed for dozens of cameramen. And then they got up with spray cans and painted graffiti on the red “Romeo and Juliet” sign on the front of the theater. Bloom scrawled:  R + J.  Rashad added a heart.
