Orlando Bloom All Set for Broadway Debut with 'Romeo and Juliet'

Orlando Bloom's amazing performance in "Romeo and Juliet" is fetching him all praises and fan following. His Broadway debut with co-star Condola Rashad will open on Thursday (running in Previews already).

Bloom admits that he is nervous, but he just loves it.

Orlando has two big blockbusters to his name, i. e. The Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean. However, his big screen success does not deter him to play on stage. He himself says that acting on stage is just like getting back to the basics.

Earlier in 2011, the star had participated for playing the tomb and balcony scenes from the story of "Romeo and Juliet". At that time, he performed with Los Angeles Philharmonic.

Three versions of "Romeo and Juliet" are ready for this fall and Bloom is performing in one of them. The R &J story by Classic Stage Company is scheduled to commence from September 27 and in October a R &J movie named "The most dangerous love story ever told" is set to be released.

David's version of R&J will surely fascinate the viewers, as here the Romeo rides a motorcycle. Bloom appeared to be very excited about this and said, "For me it's a great way to get around low-key. I have a BMW and couple different bikes. I used to ride as a kid. Now, I ride in New York. They're a good way to get around without creating much of a stir."
