While the production as earned mixed reviews, our very own Sabba Rahbar (as you probably know, she’s an Orlando Bloom superfan) is attending the play, so we’ll be getting her take.
The pair are “sweet together” according to Tom Wicker writing in The Daily Telegraph, who continued: “But their relationship lacks the spark that would make the tragedy of their situation really blaze”.
He said director David Leveaux’s production “has its flaws” but was still an “enjoyable, energetic romp through Shakespeare”.
Many critics commented that Bloom, 36, should be “too old” to play Romeo, however most admitted he had pulled it off.
“His boyish prettiness serves the role well, and his early classical training is evident in the ease and conviction he brings to the language,” wrote David Rooney in The Hollywood Reporter.
