The Montagues and Capulets are back! Tickets are now on sale for a new Broadway production of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, starring Orlando Bloom and two-time Tony nominee Condola Rashad as the world's most famous star-crossed lovers. Directed by five-time Tony nominee David Leveaux, Romeo and Juliet begins performances on August 24 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, where it will open on September 19.
In addition to Bloom and Rashad, Romeo and Juliet also features Tony winner Brent Carver, two-time Tony nominee Jayne Houdyshell, Tony winner Chuck Cooper, Christian Camargo, Roslyn Ruff, Conrad Kemp, Justin Guarini, Corey Hawkins and Geoffrey Owens. The company also includes 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. The first Broadway staging in 36 years, this revival of Romeo and Juliet will retain Shakespeare’s language while moving the setting to contemporary times in which the warring Montague and Capulet families are of different ethnicities.
The creative team for Romeo and Juliet will include scenic design by Jesse Poleshuck, costume design by Fabio Toblini, lighting design by David Weiner, sound design by David Van Tieghem and hair design by David Brian Brown.
