It's hard to know how to rate a show that has such a vacuum where the leads should be. Every single supporting player was better than the leads. Mercutio was good. Juliet's father was wonderful. However, the star of the show was Jayne Houdyshell as the nurse. She had the audience eating out of her hand. Truly an amazing performance on her part.

This was the worst performance I have ever seen on or off Broadway. I honestly thought they were joking at the death scenes, starting with Mercutio's where it didn't even seem like Romeo cared at all whether Mercutio was dead/dying. I like Orlando Bloom (I've only seen him on film) but I felt he did a really poor job. It felt like nobody really cared to even be on stage. I was so disappointed and would not recommend this to anyone.

I'm such a picky theater goer since moving to NYC last year. I go nearly every week and have seen many shows on Broadway that were such disappointments. I'm am so happy to say that ROMEO AND JULIET was thoroughly enjoyable. Yes, the men are a bit stronger in this cast as it seemed impossible for the women to create as indelible of a human performance as Jayne Houdyshell as NURSE. She definitely deserves a Tony Award nom. So Condola Rashad as Juliet was left in her dust. Orlando Bloom was terrific and Christian Carmago as Mercurtio is worth the price of entry (though I saw it via TDF discount). And that guy that looks like American Idol season one runner up Justin Guarino - IS. The set and staging were compelling and Broadway worthy. The language is a bit difficult to understand every sentence, but the story is easy to follow. Get thee a ticket lest thee miss a rare stellar show!

This is going to be THE MOST FANTASTIC SHOW OF ALL TIME as a performance of ROMEO & JULIET...How could it not be hugely popular and a SELL-OUT! ....MOST OF US are SO EXCITED and CANT WAIT to SEE IT.. David Leveaux, Orlando Bloom, Condola Rashad... HOW CAN THAT COMBINATION EVER FAIL!! I FORECAST it will be a winner in ever sense of the word! ORLANDO BLOOM will be available after to sign photographs....PHEW.! This is an opportunity NOT TO BE MISSED!
