Can two powerful and driven people make a long-distance relationship work? In the case of Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra
, the couple would have better odds if Antony kept better company (and maybe didn't secretly marry someone else). But you know how emperors and empresses are -- headstrong and passionate. The duo's romantic life has thrilled audiences for 400 years, so it's little wonder that Shakespeare Festival St. Louis presents Antony and Cleopatra
as this year's show. The drama is performed outdoors at 8 p.m. every night except Tuesday (May 22 through June 14) at Shakespeare Glen in Forest Park (near Art Hill; www.sfstl.com
). Admission is free.
Mondays, Wednesdays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: May 22. Continues through June 14, 2015
