Free Summer Theater in Fort Greene Park in the Fort Greene Neighborhood of Brooklyn

TENTATIVE - UNCONFIRMED AS OF 7.13.21

Date / Time / Event. Friday, July 30, 2021 beginning at 7.30 pm / Hip to Hip Theater Free - Antonio & Cleopatra

Description. This Shakespearean play has been characterized as a tragedy, comedy and romance all in one. It is about Marc Antony, a famous general and one of the triumvirs of Rome, who took the constitutional republic into an autocratic state [sound familiar?]. The play is about Marc Antony's relationship with Cleopatra, who was the last active ruler of Egypt from a long line of pharoahs. Egypt, ruled by Cleopatra, was a client state of the Roman Empire, which was divided among the triumvir dictators, each of whom had a slice of the empire. Antony had the eastern section which included Egypt, and he and Octavia were rivals, so Antony married Octavia's sister to avoid civil war. But Antony cheated on her with Cleopatra and eventually war broke out, and the Egyptian fleet, at a critical moment, fled. It's considered Shakespeare's most complicated depiction of a female character. Free summer outdoor theater in Fort Greene Park in the Fort Green neighborhood of Brooklyn NYC.

In this beautiful Street Theater Story, the old and the new, the old and the young, all come together, to assure us that this Pandemic will end, and together, we shall survive.
