About Caesar & Cleopatra

Caesar & Cleopatra is Shaw’s least known almost historical comedy of epic proportions not seen in NYC in over 40 years!

In George Bernard Shaw’s epic comedy Caesar & Cleopatra, two of history’s most notoriously clever and sexually charged characters meet and change each other and the world around them. Julius Caesar conquers Egypt and becomes mentor to the young Cleopatra, who is determined to become the queen of legend we all know.

This all-star cast headed by Robert Cuccioli, Teresa Avia Lim, and Brenda Braxton bring you a sparkling new adaptation of one of the theatre’s most famous yet unknown comedy from the pen of George Bernard Shaw!

"A splendid new adaptation of one of Shaw's most glittering, least Shakespearean conversation pieces" Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal.

“The play is a reflection of its own time, not that of its subjects …Lim and Cuccioli are both excellent, and their affectionate yet competitive chemistry is thoroughly delightful; that their lives are destined to end in violence injects a note of inescapable pathos into the generally comical proceedings. Regina Robbins, Time Out
