Byron Jennings and Elizabeth Marvel will play the title roles in An Evening of Antony & Cleopatra at the Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College (68th Street near Park Avenue) on Monday, September 26 at 6:30pm. Presented by The Shakespeare Society, this evening of excerpts from the Bard's work will be moderated by Kristin Linklater and directed by Michael Sexton.

Jennings has appeared on Broadway in such plays as Sight Unseen, The Man Who Came to Dinner, A Month in the Country, and Dinner at Eight. In November, he will co-star with Gabriel Byrne in the Roundabout Theater production of Eugene O'Neill's A Touch of the Poet.

Marvel is a four-time Obie Award winner for Hedda Gabler, A Streetcar Named Desire, Therese Raquin, and Misalliance. She was seen this summer in the Williamstown Theater Festival production of Bus Stop. Next month, she'll begin performances in the Broadway revival of Edward Albee's Seascape opposite Frances Sternhagen, George Grizzard, and Frederick Weller.

Tickets for the September 26 event range in price from $25 to $40 and are available on a limited basis. Call 212-772-4448 for information.
