Condola Rashad is taking Broadway by storm as the lovelorn Juliet in Romeo and Juliet. The gorgeous actress, who stars opposite Orlando Bloom in the production, is earning rave reviews for her portrayal of Shakespeare's most famous female character.

In our exclusive video, we talk to the two-time Tony nominee about the racial undertones of this version of Romeo and Juliet, 50 Cent's crush on her famous mother, Phylicia Rashad, and her views on interracial relationships. As the luminous actress tells us, "it's all about the love."

Plus, given Shakespeare's tendency to cast male actors to play the female parts back in the day, we ask Rashad to tell us which male celebrity she would want to play her.  Check out the interview below.
