HERE'S WHAT'S NEW:

Well, my "little vacation" ended up lasting two and a half years... funny how life steers your life in directions you weren't planning on. I'll start off with occasional posts, but I fully plan to resume this blog to full speed by the new year.

I hope you'll come back for frequent visits, to see new reviews, to share opinions, to take a survey (or two), and to celebrate the shows and show people that have made the TheatreScene!

CONTEST: Win tickets to see Broadway's ROMEO and JULIET at a Movie Theater Near You!


THIS CONTEST HAS ENDED.  THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO ENTERED.  THE TRIVIA ANSWERS ARE HIGHLIGHTED BELOW.

Broadway fans around the country lately have been able to see theatre performances from the comfort and convenience (not to mention pretty cheaply) of their local cineplex.  From Love Never Dies to Merrily We Roll Along, plus a wide selection of things from the National Theatre of Great Britain,  movie theaters all across the country are bringing the thrill of live theatre performances to avid fans and those who can't get to New York.

And now comes Romeo and Juliet  starring Orlando Bloom (Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean) as Romeo and Condola Rashad (Smash, Sex and the City 2) as Juliet, will be opening at a movie theatre near you this Valentine’s Day! The film has an exclusive run in movie theaters from February 13-19.  And I have a pair of tickets to a screening for you to win!


Orlando Bloom (Romeo) and
Condola Rashad (Juliet)

ABOUT THE PRODUCTION                                           
The stunningly modern stage production has received acclaimed-reviews, including this from the New York Times: “Mr Bloom in a first-rate Broadway debut and the gifted Rashad exude a too fine for this world purity that makes their characters’ love feel sacred.” In addition to Bloom and Rashad, the cast includes Christian Camargo (The Hurt Locker, Dexter), Justin Guarini (American Idol, American Idiot), Tony Award winners Brent Carver (Kiss of the Spider Woman, Sleepy Hollow), Chuck Cooper (Law & Order, American Gangster), and two-time nominee Jayne Houdyshell (Follies). Romeo and Juliet was captured for cinema on November 27 at New York’s Richard Rodgers Theatre by the multiple, Emmy award-winning Don Roy King (Saturday Night Live).

While Romeo and Juliet is the most famous love story of all time, this production marked the first time in 36 years that the play was produced on Broadway.  For more information on the screening, including social networks and link to the film trailer, scroll down past the contest.
