About This Show

Antony and Cleopatra, Shakespeare’s unforgettable study of mature lovers who sacrifice all for love, is also a study in two cultures: the formality of Rome pitted against the sensuality of Roman Egypt. Shot through with rich language and charged with a Chekhovian sense of regret, this is one of the crown jewels of the world’s dramatic poetry. Though the play is often staged on a grand scale, The Duke on 42nd Street permits an intimate staging.

For ages 25 and under, $10.00 tickets are available at the box office with valid ID. They may be purchased for all performances, including day-of or future performances, in-person only, at the theater itself.
