      EVENT DETAILS
      Antony and Cleopatra

      Two great leaders entangle themselves and their nations in one great big romantic mess.

      One of history’s most famous love stories, Antony and Cleopatra is Shakespeare’s most expansive play, full of all the colliding opposites that make life rich: work and play, war and peace, East and West, and – in the title characters – man and woman. The kaleidoscopic language and action of the play gives us a story which is simultaneously a tragedy and a comedy, both sublime. Obie award-winner Sharon Ott directs one of history’s most famous love stories in Shakespeare’s own sequel to Julius Caesar.

      This fall at the Blackfriars Playhouse:
      Three plays,
      two authors,
      one great story.

      Through "Julius Caesar" and "Antony and Cleopatra" by William Shakespeare and "Caesar and Cleopatra" by George Bernard Shaw, our 2019 Summer Festival Season traces the arc of Cleopatra’s journey from an impressionable young queen to a powerful world ruler, exploring where and how politics and personality intersect to alter the course of history.

      The plays run in repertory with our world-premiere musical - THE WILLARD SUITCASES. This is ASC's first fully sung-through production. It features the repertory ensemble alongside Broadway legend Nancy Anderson. Tickets on sale now.
