  Antony & Cleopatra by William Shakespeare, Directed by Ken Kelleher
Circle Theatre
One fateful meeting reshapes the ancient world when the great Roman warrior Mark Antony, like Caesar before him, falls in love with the incomparable Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile. His devotion to desire rather than duty is the beginning of a downward spiral for him, the Republic and Cleopatra, the last in her bloodline. Shakespeare’s epic love story, set in modern day by director Kenneth Kelleher, presents history as a breathtaking pageant full of passion, intrigue, exotic locales and the larger-than-life characters that brought about the death of an Egyptian dynasty and the birth of the Roman Empire.

  Picasso at the Lapine Agile
Oct 28  to  Nov 18 
 Picasso at the Lapin Agile  by Steve Martin

  The incredibly funny Steve Martin brings us a charming and silly play.
Two young men, Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso, walk into a bar in Paris in 1904. An absurd exchange of laughable ideas ensues as they ponder the utter preposterousness of art and life. Winner of the best Off-Broadway Play Award.  

 Our post show talk back series {reActions} will be November 12th.   This is an informal Q & A session where audience members can engage with the cast and creative team directly after the performance.
