BWW Reviews: Shakespeare Festival St. Louis' ANTONY AND CLEOPATRABWW Reviews: Shakespeare Festival St. Louis' ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA
by Chris Gibson - May 28, 2015

One of the joys of late Spring is taking in the latest offering by Shakespeare Festival St. Louis each year in Forest Park. There's just something truly special about sitting under the stars and watching the immortal bard's words come to life on stage. This year the play of choice is the tragedy Antony and Cleopatra, which has the distinction of having more scenes than any other play he penned. It's also chock full of wonderful, poetic language, takes place in an exotic location (ancient Egypt), and makes a convincing argument for staying out of the affairs of the Middle East. This production is distinguished by some particularly excellent performances, as well as some wonderful stagecraft, but it may be a bit too verbose, and lacking in action, for its own good.
