Studio 58 launches Season 54 with Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra

As the Queen of East Van, Isolde N. Barron, Cleopatra was one of my biggest influences in the creation of my alter ego. She is one of Shakespeare's most complex characters and one of history's most fascinating figures. An incredibly accomplished states-person and intellectual, she co-ruled with her father from 14, was crowned at 18, commanded armies at 21, spoke nine languages including the common Egyptian Arabic and was the only ruler in her family's 300 years that did so. She brought 22 years of stability and prosperity to the kingdom she fought so hard to protect. Using this historical perspective, I am so excited to delve into this love story
