Part of The New York Times critical guide to shows this week.

'The actors are splendid: vivid, vibrant and specific. So is this play by a promising writer.' - The New York Times Critics Pick

The highly anticipated new play from the writer of the NY Times Critic's pick Off-Broadway comedy hit, For Love. A roller coaster ride at the theater, action packed, visceral and provocative with themes of love, sex, forgiveness, redemption and…dancing...

A father, son and daughter must struggle to redefine the heart of their family, as they are about to lose the only thing that's holds them together. This loss might ultimately tear them apart, as this family's tapestry begins to unravel and old hurts boil and rise to the surface. How do you prepare yourself for your worst nightmare while living in it? How do you face the big black cloud about to burst on your horizon? Maybe you could take the opportunity to put things right, say what you never had the chase to say, meant to say, and wanted to say, then you might be able to forgive… even forgive yourself? Or maybe you could dance, dancing is good, dancing in nightclubs, dancing in bedrooms, dancing in the moonlight…So common let's dance, because how far can you let yourself go before you lose yourself altogether?

Georganne Aldrich Heller presents the world premier of The Last Days of Cleopatra. Directed by the multi talented Tim Ruddy. The cast reunites 1st Irish Best Actor Winner Mick Mellamphy and Best Actress Winner Laoisa Sexton. The play also features Kenneth Ryan and Kevin Marron.
