"John Langs is a talented director (and was recently hired by ACT as its new associate artistic director) who has shepherded memorably clear and nuanced productions of classics and new plays. But this Antony and Cleopatra feels like his eyes were bigger than his stomach. He tries valiantly to clarify all the major themes—Egyptian scenes are lit with sensual golden light, for example, and Roman scenes with a harsh white glare—but can't reconcile his sweet and sour into a fully blended soup, much less wrangle Cleopatra's famously confounding character."
