Great dancing, Miserably uncomfortable, Monotonous, Excruciating, Disappointing

See it if You want a club experience, if you want to see some energetic dance moves and some really sexy costumes.

Don't see it if You’re not prepared to stand for more than an hour and a half in a crowded, loud, jostling mob of young people talking and rcding w/phones. Read more

Entertaining, Great singing, Ambitious, Great dancing

See it if you want to try something different, and want to hear some great songs with talented singers. If you like song and dance shows.

Don't see it if you can't stand for over 1 hour. You really need to be up close and to watch the dancers. Read more

"Billed as an immersive pop-musical experience, the show is less a full-fledged tuner than a glorified club concert...Inebriated audiences are invited to party like it's Nineteen-Ninety-Nile as quiptastic 'RuPaul's Drag Race' favorite Dusty Ray Bottoms emcees sexy interactive games, Nya belts like Beyoncé, and a sweaty multicultural chorus performs JT Horenstein's athletic moves...As dance-laugh-and-drink-the-night-away theatrical attractions go, 'Cleopatra' is campy fun."

“’Cleopatra’ is equal parts drag show, pop concert, and Broadway musical, and, though it has some rough edges, it is surely a good time...Overall, Horenstein nails the punchy format of a pop concert but neglects to create more intimate theatrical moments of tension and passion between the play’s lead roles...’Cleopatra’ is a good time that should get even better as logistical kinks are ironed out, and perhaps some dramatic scenes are more fully realized.”
