NYC Shakespeare Meetup Antony and Cleopatra by William Shakespeare

No Fear Antony and Cleopatra



“In time we hate that which we often fear.”

William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra

“Music, moody food

Of us that trade in love.”

William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra




“We, ignorant of ourselves,

Beg often our own harms, which the wise powers

Deny us for our good; so find we profit

By losing of our prayers.”

William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra





“The crown o' the earth doth melt. My lord!

O, wither'd is the garland of the war,

The soldier's pole is fall'n: young boys and girls

Are level now with men; the odds is gone,

And there is nothing left remarkable

Beneath the visiting moon.”

William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra




“That truth should be silent I had almost forgot. (Enobarbus)”

William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra

“The breaking of so great a thing should make

A greater crack: the round world

Should have shook lions into civil streets,

And citizens to their dens.”

William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra

“But she makes hungry

Where she most satisfies...”

William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra




“Give me my robe, put on my crown; I have Immortal longings in me”

― William ShakespeareAnto

ny and Cleopatra

“The worm is not to be trusted...”

― William ShakespeareAntony and Cleopatra


“Where souls do

couch on flowers we’ll hand in hand...”

William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra




“The stroke of death is as a lover's pinch

Which hurts and is desired.”

William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra

“For what good turn?

William Shakespeare, Antony and CleopatraMessenger: For the best turn of the bed.”

“Kingdoms are clay: our dungy earth alike

Feeds beast as man.”

William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra



“Sometime we see a cloud that's dragonish,

A vapor sometime like a bear or lion,

A towered citadel, a pendant rock,

A forked mountain, or blue promontory

With trees upon't that nod unto the world

And mock our eyes with air. Thou hast seen these


They are black vesper's pageants.”

William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra

    Sorry I had to leave early. I had a ticket for "Finks" at EST and it turned out to be terrific.

    I am traveling a lot in the next few months, so I may not be there for a while. But I wanted to say that I enjoyed the last meeting and thought that you were all amazing.

    I am tourists in NY and I hope I can have special memories here to discuss Shakespeare.

    I've been cast in a paid reading of AS YOU LIKE IT and we have rehearsal on Saturday, so I won't be able to make it after all. Have a great time!

    Kate, in the one read through I attended, parts were changed pretty much scene by scene so that everyone got to read a bit of everything. Women read men's parts, men on occasion women's parts.

  • Bill G.

    The adventure continues...

  • Kate K.

    How do you choose who reads which part? I'd love to read Herself. See my website:

    Thanks for all that you do!
