THE SEASON’S BEST HISTORY LESSON

Expert's Pick

"ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA" TheatreWorks, University of Colorado at Colorado Springs

Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton's "Cleopatra" doesn't exactly prepare you for Shakespeare's surprisingly detailed account of the geopolitical infighting spurred by this epic romance. Director Murray Ross and his cast deliver more than a history lesson, though. Stars Tracy Hostmyer and James Keegan carve out flesh and blood visitations of these familiar figures - the passion and love, yes, but also the dark narcissism, manipulation and betrayal that ultimately fuels the tragic ending.
