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

Delightful, Funny, Hilarious, Return-to-form, Refreshing

See it if you love Charles Busch and his masterfully-done, yet silly camp pieces. Busch's take on Cleopatra is refreshing and cleverly funny.

Don't see it if campy humor just isn't your thing.

Classic camp, Dragtastic, Hilarious, Delightful

See it if You can get a ticket to the sold out run. Charles Busch delivers a master class on high camp. This is one of his straight up funny plays.

Don't see it if You're a straight man. Or if you're offended by colorful language and girl-on-girl action.

Clever, Funny, Raunchy

See it if you appreciate the artistry of Charles Busch! He got his friends together and put on a fabulous show. Celebs in the audience! A riot!!!

Don't see it if you don't laugh at old movie references, burlesque humor, LGTBetc. plots, drag performers, or love rhinestones. Lots of rhinestones.

Cliched, Entertaining, Funny, Quirky, Fluffy

See it if you are a Charles Busch fan, if you want a funny and entertaining send up of the Cleopatra story, if you like to laugh and smile.

Don't see it if you don't like what Charles Busch does. As he said during his curtain speech, "Nothings being developed here. This is it."
