Cleopatra Casting Change

Anika Noni Rose will not be in Caesar and Cleopatra (2008), due to a scheduling conflict. Rose will instead be filming The No. 1 Ladie's Detective Agency.

Cleopatra will be taken up by newcomer Nikki M. James, whose original role in the play was Iras. James comes to Stratford straight from La Jolla Playhouse, where she was Dorothy in Des McAnuff's The Wiz.

Romeo and Juliet (2008) goes into previews on May 7; Caesar and Cleopatra on August 7.
