She’s a YBF chick we’ve had our eye on for a while. And now she’s getting her due as she’s become one of the most sought after stars on Broadway. Meet Phylicia & Ahmad Rashad‘s real life daughter, Condola, inside….
She uber talented, bright eyed & bushy tailed, a hustler, and freakin’ gorge. All the qualities of a true YBF chick. Condola Phylea Rashad has made her own name for herself starring in acclaimed Broadway productions where she showcases her sharp acting chops (her mom is THE tv mom of all tv moms so we’re not surprised). And the Tony nominee can belt out a tune or two as well.
The fab chick is already on her way to becoming a solid tv star after playing the starring role of "Shelby" in Lifetime’s Emmy nominated Steel Magnolias, and she also had a role in NBC’s shortlived "Smash".
After stealing the show in Broadway productions like Alicia Keys’ Stick Fly and the currently running Trip To Bountiful, 26-year-old Condola is set to star in the upcoming Broadway production of Romeo & Juliet.
And for our fellow hopeless romantics who are already drooling at the thought of this Shakespeare classic mozying back to Broadway for the first time in 36 years, we’ve got the co-stars’ first press event pics.
Actor Orlando Bloom has been tapped to play Romeo to Condola’s Juliet. And the two posed it up on a motorcycle in New York City today. We’re loving this already.
Romeo & Juliet previews at the Richard Rogers Theater on August 24th, and officially opens on Broadway September 19th. We’re so there.
