Orlando Bloom Makes Broadway Debut In 'Romeo & Juliet'; Miranda Kerr Attends
Orlando Bloom received a round of applause when he took his curtain call at the Broadway premiere of Romeo & Juliet on Thursday night.
Bloom, 36, stars in the production opposite Condola Rashad, the daughter of legendary stage and screen actress Phylicia Rashad, who was at the Richard Rodgers Theater to watch her shine. Also present for the premiere was Bloom’s wife, former Victoria’s Secret Angel Miranda Kerr.
While Bloom’s performance on the stage has been lauded by the likes of The New York Times, Kerr’s fashion choices at the premiere created some headlines of their own. On the red carpet, Kerr dazzled in a sheer white long-sleeved dress that featured cutouts and a pleated skirt, reported E! News. For the after party, the wife of the leading man donned a printed black and white sleeveless dress that she paired with white heals.
Directed by David Leveaux, the production of William Shakespeare’s seminal tale of unrequited love features Jayne Houdyshell as Nurse, Brent Carver as Friar Laurence and Chuck Cooper as Lord Capulet.
Romeo & Juliet will be running at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City through Nov. 24, 2013.
