Above the river Patapsco, an engaging 'Antony and Cleopatra'
Shakespeare's "Antony and Cleopatra" is a funny sort of tragedy. Although its martial and amorous complications have deadly consequences, this play has a lot of jokes along the way. Indeed, the snake that the Egyptian queen uses to kill herself is delivered by an irreverent little servant who wouldn't be out of place in a "Saturday Night Live" sketch.
