History's Greatest Love Story.
Julius Caesar is no more and Mark Antony (Cody Nickell), at the peak of his political power, is ensconced in Egypt at the side of the irresistible Cleopatra (Shirine Babb). Torn between his military duties to Rome and his passionate love affair with Cleopatra, Antony finds himself engaged in both war and romance. Shakespeare’s epic encompasses politics and power, love and jealousy, alliance and misalliance.
The intimate setting of the Folger Theatre will be transformed to present this production in-the-round, offering greater intimacy to all of the action in Rome and in Egypt.
"Cody Nickell and Shirine Babb beautifully embody the powerful lovers...and they command our attention as if by birthright" – Washington Post
