EXCLUSIVE: Justin Guarini Goes Backstage at Romeo and Juliet
Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad play the star-crossed lovers in the Broadway revival of Romeo and Juliet, which takes a new perspective on Shakespeare's play by incorporating elements of racial intolerance. Taking a break from his usual role as the show's Paris, Justin Guarini played tour guide and went behind the scenes of the production at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. Guarini took a peek at cast warm-ups, bird rehearsal, fight call and the stage crew as they tested the show's moving "fire bars" which shoot flames high into the air during the performance. See all of the show's details in the Playbill Vault.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
