Haitian version of Shakespeare's Antony & Cleopatra

Haiti at a pivotal point of transformation--a fitting setting for the story of Marc Anthony and Cleopatra, the star-crossed, tempestuous lovers whose affair blazed bright and hot during a time of shifting regime's within Egypt's shared history with Rome. The old story with a new look will take to the stage of Miami Beach's Colony Theatre from January 10, to February 9. The story, which culminates at the final battle of the Haitian Revolution, where Cleopatra will famously take her own life, was penned by actor and award-winning dramatist, Tarell Alvin McCraney.
