Antony and Cleopatra on Stage in the Berkshires
(2007-08-13)
(wfcr) - "Antony and Cleopatra" is one of the most rarely performed of Shakespeare's great tragedies--for several reasons. It's long and complicated, full of political and diplomatic intrigue. Its action cuts back and forth between Egypt and Rome. And it presents tricky challenges to a director's ingenuity--and a producer's budget. This month, Shakespeare and Company, in Lenox, Massachusetts, is presenting "Antony and Cleopatra." In thirty seasons the company has done the tragedy only once before. This time, its star is the troupe's founder, Tina Packer. Chris Rohmann has a review. © Copyright 2017, wfcr
