BroadwayHD At The Movies: Romeo and Juliet →

Only just heard about this today. Apologies to US followers but it appears screenings in the US have passed. For those of you in Europe and Australia, screenings are coming soon. I hope this means more Broadway shows will be broadcast in cinemas around the world:

"Prejudice. Anger. Betrayal. And the chance that true love could actually conquer all. It could only be the greatest love story of all time…Filmed live on Broadway and starring the British actor Orlando Bloom (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lord of the Rings) and two-time Tony Award nominee Condola Rashad, this dazzling new production of Romeo and Juliet is a modern take on one of Shakespeare’s best-loved plays. Staged on Broadway for the first time in 36 years, director David Leveaux brings a dynamic energy and contemporary setting to his interpretation of this eternally tragic tale of star-crossed lovers.”

Love’s Labour’s Lost and Love’s Labour’s Won (also known as Much Ado About Nothing) will play as a double-bill.

Both plays will be directed by Christopher Luscombe, broadcast live to cinemas and streamed free to schools.

Both productions will share a setting based on a splendid country house just before and just after the First World War. Edward Bennett and Michelle Terry will play the lovers in both productions.
