Antony and Cleopatra
"...director Lesley Currier is a brave woman to tackle this seldom-produced historical play. Her production of this drama of love and diplomacy is very well realized with stunning performances full of deep emotion from Marcia Pizzo and Marvin Greene as the great lovers....
While the two main players are undoubtedly the stars, the supporting cast is also impressive, especially the excellent Stephen Klum as Enobarbus, Antony’s wise general who easily sways between carousing friend and guiding light. His female equivalent is Charmian, played with great feeling by Alexandra Matthew. And Cat Thompson’s stately elegance as Octavia, sister of Caesar and wife of Antony, is effective....
Lesley Currier and her outstanding cast have created a production of Antony and Cleopatra with sexiness, lightness and great wit, which counterbalance the last act’s tragedy."
-- Flora Lynn Isaacson, San Francisco Bay Times
"For the last play in Marin Shakespeare Company’s 2010 season, associate Artistic Director Lesley Currier directs Antony and Cleopatra and it is a pleasure to attend a Shakespeare play that would receive his approval....it is refreshing to observe Romans and Egyptians dressed as Romans and Egyptians (great costumes by Abra Berman) giving good to great perceptive delivery to Shakespeare’s lines."
