      EVENT DETAILS
      Caesar and Cleopatra

      A wily old general mentors a fiery young queen in the finer points of state-craft.

      In the middle of a sibling rivalry over a powerful throne enters an outsider who is determined to establish an agreement befitting both parties. But, in "Caesar and Cleopatra", when tensions overpower compromise, war breaks out - and with it comes death, betrayal, clemency, and a clear leader. 2014 Wall Street Journal director of the year Eric Tucker brings his unique perspective to George Bernard Shaw’s prequel to Shakespeare’s pair of historical and personal epics.

      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.
