Delightful play on the...

Delightful play on the interaction between J. Caesar, here presented by Shaw as a wise avuncular idealist, and Cleopatra, the giggly teenage queen of Egypt. Caesar teaches her to be a real queen and to use her power wisely. Shaw's wit was much in evidence throughout. For comparison I read the text at the same time as I viewed the 1945 Rains/Leigh movie. The script kept the dialogue nearly intact. I regretted the deletion of the stage directions from the movie; I thought them equally as clever as the dialogue with Shaw's sardonicism. This is one not to be missed, a double treat if you read/view it as I did.

Lovely play but I was at a loss to imagine a successful staging. This is vast and epic while insistently self aware, emplacing it's own sense of history upon a lineage we believe to know from another play by that one guy.The characterization of Cleopatra as a petulant teen was remarkable-especially in contrast to a stolid weariness from Julius Caesar. The role of vengeance as a historical engine is explored as is the all too human notions of sovereignty.I should read more Shaw.

Shaw presents us with ...

Shaw presents us with truly human characters, a Caesar with strength, wisdom, humanity and a little vanity. A Cleopatra who acts her age -- unsure and frightened and superstitious as she surely must have been in the presence of the Romans.

An entertaining but in...

An entertaining but inaccurate account of Caesar's brief foray with Cleopatra during the Alexandrian War in Ptolemaic Egpyt. Shaw's style is simple and engaging, and sometimes humorous. A good (and brief) read, but better to get your history elsewhere.
