Coriolanus

81 Central Park West, New York, NY 10023, USA

Coriolanus may be not as ‘interesting’ as Hamlet,” writes T. S. Eliot in The Sacred Wood, “but it is, with Antony and Cleopatra, Shakespeare’s most assured artistic success.” Actors Laurence Olivier, Anthony Hopkins, and, more recently, Tom Hiddleston have played the Roman general-turned-politician. In the Delacorte Theater’s open-air production of Coriolanus, which promises a contemporary treatment of the classic, Jonathan Cake takes the lead. —J.V.
