    I would travel anywhere to see Orlando in anything!

  • @yep

    I’m going. The music will be stellar, R&J is a real favorite. The tickets at my local theatre are $22 but it should be a great show. I really like Matthew Rhys too. Is Malcolm McDowell the guy from The Planet of the Apes?

  • Endrid


    Roddy McDowell is from the Planet of the Apes, Malcolm McDowell was most famously in A Clockwork Orange. I hope you have a great time. You must tell us about it!

  • Yep!

    I’m going.
    This will be a great draw for the LA Philharmonic.

    He nathing blah blah

  • Q


  • no thanks

    I hate his face and he’s not a particularly impressive actor.

  • Meji

    Actually I don’t think no.12 should be thumbs-downed. It’s a fair answer to the question and she doesn’t say he’s ugly, she says she hates his face, and she doesn’t say he can’t act, she says he’s not particularly impressive. Fair enough. Though it sounds like a great concert to me.

    I think it’s cool he’s doing this and I hope he’s pretty good (I liked his Wimbledon readings last year) and it leads to more things of this type.

    Orlando is the best and i loved him when he did the play in the uk just wish he would come back here. I would love to go i wish i could go and see orlando again. And he has a lovely face.

    Opinions can be expressed without being hateful.
    IMO, they deserved the ‘thumbs down’.

  • Beth

    He does really well with voice over work.
    His narration for ‘A Climb for Peace’ was beautiful, and very well done.
    And as someone else mentioned, his work for Wimbledon was wonderful.
    He has a gorgeous voice!
    I can’t wait to see this!

  • allspice

    Just got home from see the LA Phil Live with Orlando Bloom! And he was GREAT! He needs to do more theater!!!

  • sara

    He was wonderful!
    He was so full of energy and exhuberance in the balcony scene, just as a love-struck youth should be.
    And he broke your heart in the ‘death’ scene.
    So, so good.
    I would love to see him do more Shakespeare!
