This season looks like it'll be packed with Shakespeare revivals, and I have tickets for you to win to the star-studded production of Romeo and Juliet, starring Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad!  One of the world's most famous and popular works, this production about two star-crossed lovers is the 36th to be produced for Broadway - the first happened in 1754, and the most recent was in 1977.  In order to win these hot tickets, you'll need to enter by Noon on Saturday, August 17.  Be sure to follow the directions carefully!  Good luck! (Don't want to enter the contest, but want to see the show?  Scroll to the bottom of this blog entry for ticket information, including a special offer for students and educators!)


International film star Orlando Bloom will make his Broadway debut alongside two-time Tony Award® nominee Condola Rashad, as Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers in a new Broadway production of the timeless love story ROMEO AND JULIET, directed by five-time Tony Award® nominee David Leveaux. The play will open on Broadway on Thursday, September 19, 2013 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, following preview performances from Saturday, August 24, 2013.

The production will also star Tony Award® winner Brent Carver (Kiss of the Spider Woman) as Friar Laurence, two-time Tony Award® nominee Jayne Houdyshell (Well, Follies) as the Nurse, Tony Award® winner Chuck Cooper (The Life, “House Of Cards”) as Lord Capulet, Christian Camargo (All My Sons, The Hurt Locker) as Mercutio, Roslyn Ruff (The Piano Lesson, The Help) as Lady Capulet, Conrad Kemp (HBOs “The Girl”, Jerome Salle’s Zulu) as Benvolio, Justin Guarini (American Idiot, Women on the Verge…) as Paris, Corey Hawkins as Tybalt, and Geoffrey Owens as Prince Escalus. Completing the cast are Donte Bonner, Joe Carroll, Don Guillory, Sheria Irving, Maurice Jones, Eric Loscheider, Spencer Plachy, Michael Rudko, Tracy Sallows, Thomas Schall, Carolyn Michelle Smith and Nance Williamson.

While ROMEO AND JULIET is the most famous love story of all time, this production will mark the first time in 36 years that the play will be produced for Broadway. This version of the classic tale will retain Shakespeare’s original language but have a modern setting in which members of the Montague family will be white, and the Capulet family will be black.
