Shakespeare’s tragedy has it all: romance, passion, sex, heartbreak, the fascination of royalty, war, politics, the epic sweep of history and one of history’s most celebrated love stories... of Roman Mark Antony, and Cleopatra Queen of Egypt.

In case you missed the famous film, but remember one of Hollywood's most celebrated love stories, here’s a chance to enjoy the original stage version live. 
In one of her signature moves, director Gloria Gifford retains Shakespeare’s text while expanding the proceedings with a modern song score and a dazzling 35-member cast.

Executive produced by Gifford and produced by Jade Warner, Lauren Plaxco and Chad Doreck for Jamaica Moon Productions and The GGC Players. At Gray Studios, 5250 Vineland Ave., North Hollywood, through March. Tickets: 310-366-5505 or

Also in my column in the March issue of NOT BORN YESTERDAY.
