Clever, Hilarious, Raunchy, Entertaining

See it if you are a fan of Charles Busch and can easily get into his sensibility. Cleopatra is one of the funniest shows in town!

Don't see it if you are uncomfortable with drag performers and blue humor. Also, if your thing isn't over-the-top acting.

Hilarious busch romp -- beautifully acted

See it if Busch in great form! Tony Sheldon (Bernadette from Priscilla) is terrific as Caesar. Busch vet Andy Halliday is a riot as a daffy soothsayer

Don't see it if Busch's choice of Mae West for Cleo's persona was odd. Joe Zaso is the hunk Marc Antony. The ensemble is skilled in manic camp. Well done
