Tonight we drink to Cleopatra and what history, Shakespeare, and scholars are unable to imagine; the supremely feminine. A concert for the divine, for love, and the battles we always lose. Third in a five-part series exploring Shakespeare’s women, black female ambition, and music. Created by Whitney White.
Featuring: Zdenko Martin, Doug Berns, Mary Spencer Knapp, Jeremy Smith, and Dan Rosato
Directed by Taibi Magar and Tyler Dobrowsky
