Adapted and Produced by J. Michael DeAngelis and Pete Barry
Directed by John Dowgin
Can Shakespeare illuminate the Arab Spring? The Porch Room answers the question in their new production Antony & Cleopatra: Infinite Lives. It’s the story of an Egyptian expatriate who gets caught between two revolutionaries – her fiancée, an activist director who tries to upend his commissioned Shakespeare production, and her brother, a nationalist fresh from the violence of Tahrir Square. It played a sold-out run in last year’s Philly Fringe at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.
TheaterMania.com recommends Antony & Cleopatra: Infinite Lives as one of the top 8 shows to see in the NYC International Fringe Festival at the Lynn Redgrave Theatre at 45 Bleeker Street (by Lafayette) in New York City. Tickets can be purchased here.
