"Antony and Cleopatra," currently running at London's National Theatre, has tragic romance, two top-flight actors and a live snake.Sophie Okonedo and Ralph Fiennes play powerful lovers sundered by war and empire in William Shakespeare's tragedy.Fiennes says one reason the play endures is that the characters of the Roman military hero and the Egyptian queen are strange as it seems so relatable.Fiennes is an old hand at Shakespeare who won a Tony Award for playing "Hamlet" and directed and starred in a film version of "Coriolanus".The production reunites Fiennes with director Simon Godwin, who directed him in George Bernard Shaw's "Man and Superman" at the National Theatre in 2015 .Reviewers have called Okonedo fiery, funny, regal and playful, while Fiennes has been praised for playing Antony as a "creaky" figure in "tragic decline".Fiennes is not about to let any 007 secrets slip.
