Buffalo United Artists presents the retun of Charles Busch's CLEOPATRA, for 6 shows only. The turbulent life of Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile, is told, viewed through the outrageous comic lens of master parodist Charles Busch. Evoking both 1930's Hollywood epics and the grand 19th Century romantic theatre of Sarah Bernhardt, this version of the life of the ill-fated Egyptian Queen takes her from her teenage seduction of the Roman leader Julius Caesar through her volatile tragic romance with Marc Antony and to her ultimate death. Charles Busch's Cleopatra has echoes of the many great stars that have played her on stage and on film, such as Claudette Colbert, Elizabeth Taylor, Vivien Leigh and several who thankfully didn't, including Jean Harlow, Barbara Stanwyck and Mae West. Charles Busch's CLEOPATRA is directed by Todd Warfield and stars Jimmy Janowski, Bebe Bvlgari, Maria Droz, Timothy Patrick Finnegan, Adam Hayes, Guy Tomassi, and Michael Seitz. Performances are Saturday, July 8th at 8:00 p.m., Sunday, July 9th at 7:00 p.m., Friday, July 14th at 8:00 p.m., Saturday, July 15th at 4:00 p.m. & 8:00 p.m., and Sunday, July 16th at 7:00 p.m. at Alleyway Theatre – Main Stage, One Curtain Up Alley, Buffalo NY.
