Announcing Third Annual TEDxBroadway

Third-Annual TEDxBroadway: What Is the Best That Broadway Can Be?

Diane Paulus, Lea DeLaria, Sree Sreenivasan, David Drake and Others
Take the Stage to Discuss the Future of Broadway

NEW YORK, N.Y. (October 2, 2013)—The third-annual TEDxBroadway—a one-day event about the highest aspirations of Broadway – returns Monday, February  24th, 2014 at New World Stages in New York City.

 

The sound of a motorcycle roars from off-stage.  What sounds like a sound-effect quickly manifests as a real motorcycle.  Driven by a black-helmeted rider, the bike enters and crosses from one side of the stage to the other and then to the center of the stage.  Under the helmet is the wavy-haired Hollywood star, Orlando Bloom making his Broadway debut as Romeo in the David Leveaux directed Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare.  The entrance is dramatic, but not for the right reason.  As Bloom attempts to circumnavigate the bike around the wall that crosses the stage, a clumsiness encumbers the bike and its rider. It isn’t hard to imagine this bike flying into the wings or into the audience.
