Antony & Cleopatra
Time Out says
Michelle Terry and Nadia Nadarajah star in the Globe’s first ‘Antony & Cleopatra’ since 2014
Globe boss Michelle Terry makes her usual seasonal acting performance in what’s being billed as a ‘radical reimagining’ of Shakespeare’s great romantic history, ‘Antony & Cleopatra’. Deaf actor – and Globe regular – Nadia Nadarajah will take on the role of Cleopatra, as opposed to bigger name Terry, who will play an alternative, unspecified part. We don’t know that much else about the production, even, remarkably, the director, although in probably not unconnected news, Terry and Nadarajah will be joined on stage bu Federay Holmes, best know as sort-of director of the pre-Sean Holmes Globe Ensemble shows. Confusingly, this is a Globe Ensemble show, but not the same Globe Ensemble as the one that will be performing ‘Twelfth Night’ and ‘Metamorphosis’ this season.
