Audience (and Other) Comments

People are talking about Flatwater's Antony and Cleopatra!

About the production overall: “Thanks for another wonderful theatrical experience.”

“The show has a lovely richness to it.”

“Beautiful, beautiful show. Go see it.”

“STEAMY hot chemistry and the play was exquisitely performed by everyone!”

“Awesome show. Everyone should see it.”

About Vince Learned as Antony: “An Antony to die for! No wonder Cleo couldn’t live without him.”

About Melissa Lewis Nuss as Cleopatra: “Amazing! One of the best performances I've seen.”

“Melissa nails one of the most difficult roles in Shakespeare. To play Cleopatra you need to be comically manipulative and flighty (literally), but also regal and sympathetic. Easier said than done. I have seen some very talented actors fall short, but Melissa brings it off exceptionally well with strong support from the rest of the cast.”

About Scott Herr as Octavius: “You have a knack for keeping it honest and passionate.”

About the staging, including Kat Covers costumes: “Everything was wonderful, but especially the dresses for the Egyptian ladies.”

About John Marinovichs fight choreography: “Fantastic . . . just like in the movie 300!"

Also, one audience member confessed that she was enamored with Danny Kubert as Mardian and has decided that she wants “an eunuch” for Christmas.

And a member of the cast “LOVES, LOVES, LOVES working on Shakespeare. Everything else just pales in comparison. I could easily spend the rest of my life going from one play to the next.”

Don't miss it!
