    " although not his most critically acclaimed, by far my favorite shakespearean play. this is a story of ripe, adult love-- love that burns with the complex balance of commitment and sacrifice. antony & cleopatra put the juvenile romance of romeo and juliet to shame! "

    " my favorite shakespeare play. this was the 10th time i have read it. i also have two dvd's. one with richard johnson and janet suzman with a bit part by a very young ben kingsley. also i have the version from bbc. although i'm not a big fan of charleton heston he did a version only available on vcr. it may be the best of the lot. shakespeare's plays are made to be seen but, i have never seen this play live.

    " The problem with this was trying to negotiate Cleopatra's histrionics as a part of her intellectual scheming, as I think, just reading the play in a modern classroom, some of the effect is lost and she gets very easily dismissed as an over-dramatic flake. I read it after the class studied it, of course, and being prone to defence of such famous plays pretty much my only argument was, "Well T.S. Eliot liked it." Of course, me and "Old Possum" don't agree on everything by any means, and while this play was his favourite I wouldn't call it mine--it remains interesting but my chief curiosity is brought up by Cleopatra herself, namely how a boy-actor can try to play the role of such a mature and complicated female character from history.
