Antony and Cleopatra


History’s Greatest Love Story

Julius Caesar is no more and Mark Antony, at the peak of his political power, is lustily ensconced in Egypt at the side of the irresistible Cleopatra. Torn between his military duties to the Rome and his passionate love affair with Cleopatra, Antony finds himself between two countries waging war and a war of romance in Egypt when he is summoned home to Rome. Shakespeare’s saga of politics and passion, love and jealousy, alliance and war features Shirine Babb (Julius Caesar) and Cody Nickell (The Taming of the Shrew). Director Robert Richmond brings this epic tale to life and transforms the Elizabethan theatre to present Antony and Cleopatra in-the-round.
