Orlando Bloom Marks Broadway Debut with Critical Acclaim and Tears
Clare Sidoti Managing Editor Emotion obviously got the better of Orlando Bloom as he made his Broadway debut on Thursday. The Lord of the Rings actor stars as Romeo in David Leveaux’s Romeo and Juliet. Following the production’s opening night on September 19, Bloom had to be comforted by his Juliet, Condola Rashad as he was seen breaking down in tears at the opening night after-party in New York City, reports Digital Spy. Sharing in Bloom’s proud moment was his Australian wife and former Victoria’s Secret Angel, Miranda Kerr.

While the production itself has received a mixed reception, and there were concerns that at 36, Bloom was “too old” for the role, Bloom has won universal acclaim with his performance described as “a first-rate Broadway debut.” The Hollywood Reporter said that “his boyish prettiness serves the role well, and his early classical training is evident in the ease and conviction he brings to the language.” Rashad, who has appeared in the stage productions of Ruined, Stick Fly and The Trip to Bountiful, has admitted to being a little star struck when confronted with Bloom as a co-star. “I’m a huge Lord of the Rings fan. There were actually time in rehearsal when I was like, ‘Ok, not to geek out really quick, but I need to know – what is the difference between an Uruk-hai and an Orc?’” However, it wasn’t all fun and games in the rehearsal room, there was plenty of getting down and really exploring Shakespeare’s classic and connecting with one another: “We talk things out, we sense each other. We both know when a scene is off because we’re both there together. It’s about listening to each other,” she revealed. Bloom and Rashad can be seen in Romeo and Juliet at New York’s Richard Rogers Theater. Tickets are currently on sale for shows up to January 14, 2014. http://www.Twitter.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.tumblr.com http://www.SoundCloud.com/PopWrapped http://www.Facebook.com/PopWrapped http://www.Instagram.com/PopWrapped http://www.Pinterest.com/PopWrapped http://www.YouTube.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.wordpress.com http://www.PopWrapped.com
