Directed and choreographed by JT Horenstein, the new musical features music and lyrics by Jeff Daye and lyrics by Laura Kleinbaum.

Power. Seduction. Ruin. The legendary Queen of the Nile is throwing one of her famously lavish parties to celebrate the Empire's latest triumphs over Rome, and you are invited to attend. Inside the palace, drinks flow, and music seduces as guests are met with every indulgence. But outside the city walls, the alluring Marc Antony beckons, the nefarious Octavian lurks, and Cleopatra's enemies plot a violent end to her prosperous reign. The Queen better watch her back.

CLEOPATRA is a high-octane fusion of music, dance, fashion, theater and nightlife that welcomes audiences into a wholly interactive experience. Set to an original pop score spun by a live DJ, this exhilarating immersive musical traces history's most seductive and powerful ruler, mixing historical drama with an enveloping spectacle that will have guests partying until the Empire falls.

The cast of CLEOPATRA features "RuPaul's Drag Race" season ten star Dusty Ray Bottoms (Mistress of Ceremonies), breakout star Nya (Cleopatra), Christian Brailsford(Marc Antony), Sydney Parra (Iris), Corbin Payne (Octavian), Alexia Sielo, Audrey Rose Young, Brendan Henderson, Cody Mowery, Timothy Wilson, Yuriko Miyake, and Alison Ingelstrom.

Paying homage to the revelry and rich entertainment culture of Chelsea's past, Chelsea Music Hall is now open beneath Chelsea Market. Booking for the venue is helmed by Sergei Sklyarenko (aka "Serge," Sullivan Room) with partners including Chip Quigley(Kingdom Entertainment Group), Michael Barrett (China Club, The Tippler) and Michael Ginsberg (Events at Chelsea Market, The Tippler), with the venue hosting a wide range of entertainment including immersive theatre, DJs, music, comedy and more. Like the Chelsea Market's food hall upstairs, Chelsea Music Hall aims to be a destination for anyone - New Yorkers or otherwise - looking for a place where they can still have a good time in Manhattan.

CLEOPATRA played a strictly limited engagement at Theater for the New City in the East Village in September - October 2017. The new immersive experience was a runaway success, selling out its entire run.
