Take a look at some of the lovely replies, which I’ve put together in Most Romantic Theater
Ticket Giveaway: Win two tickets to see “Romeo and Juliet,” Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy, in its first production on Broadway in 36 years. Directed by David Leveaux, it stars film actor Orlando Bloom, making his Broadway debut, and Condola Rashad, a Broadway veteran most recently in “The Trip to Bountiful.”
This version retains Shakespeare’s language but is set in modern times, with the Montague family white and the Capulet family black. Other performers in the play include: Jayne Houdyshell as the Nurse, Chuck Cooper as Lord Capulet,Justin Guarini as Paris.
“Romeo and Juliet” begins performances at Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theater on August 24th and opens on September 19th, 2013.
