Orlando Bloom - Orlando Bloom & Condola Rashad To Return To The Stage As Romeo & Juliet For Shakespeare Tribute

Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad are bringing their Romeo & Juliet back to the stage for one night only.

The actors, who starred in the tragedy on the Broadway stage, will read selections from the play at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles as part of a musical tribute to William Shakespeare.

Bloom and Rashad will be joined by the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra and fellow actors Robert Sean Leonard and Joe Morton, who will read extracts from the playwright's Hamlet and The Tempest.

The concert, set for 26 February (14), will feature Tchaikovsky's Fantasy overtures for the three Shakespeare plays, conducted by Gustavo Dudamel.

Meanwhile, the full production of Romeo & Juliet, starring Bloom and Rashad, which closed early in December (13) due to poor sales has hit movie theatres across the U.S. for Valentine's Day (14Feb14).
