Caesar and Cleopatra

About This Show

One of Shaw’s most famous and least known plays, this remarkable comedy of epic proportions hasn’t been given a full NYC production in over 40 years! As an early attempt to craft a theatrical relationship that evolved into the Eliza/Higgins partnership of Shaw’s Pygmalion, this highly entertaining play from 1898 boldly addresses women’s rights, sexual roles, empowering the disenfranchised, having the courage to define the self in the face of social and societal rigid expectations, being an active and contributive member of the community, and even the dangers of Imperialist colonization. Shaw reminds us that we’re all immigrants seeking to make our way in the world!
