Public, RSC team for ‘Antony’

Trio of companies present international tour

Off Broadway’s Public Theater has teamed with the U.K.’s Royal Shakespeare Company (“Matilda the Musical”) and Miami’s GableStage to present a trans-Atlantic touring production of Tarell Alvin McCraney’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Antony and Cleopatra.”

Edited and directed by playwright McCraney (“The Brothers Size,” “Wig Out”), the new version is set in late 18th century Haiti, just before the nation’s revolution against the French.

Casting process for the international run will consider thesps from London, Gotham and Miami.

McCraney is an artistic associate at the RSC, which will bow the production in November 2013. GableStage gets the staging in January 2014, with the Public to present its run of the show beginning later that same month.

McCraney’s work has attracted plaudits on both sides of the Atlantic. The Public, for instance, produced “Brother/Sister Plays” in 2009, while the latest title by the scribe, “Choir Boy,” recently preemed at London’s Royal Court.

The RSC’s West End hit “Matilda the Musical” is on tap for a Broadway transfer that will open in the spring.
