    Synopsis: 

    Fit for a Queen is inspired by the life of Hatshepsut, the only woman who ruled as a pharaoh in ancient Egypt. The most dangerous opponent to Hatshepsut’s kingship turns out to be her own daughter. Full of intrigue, farce, and sexual politics, Fit for a Queen illuminates the largely unknown history of a compelling African woman who took power over the most advanced civilization the ancient world had yet known.

    ‘Fit for a Queen’ Sees ‘Dynasty’ Centuries Before the TV Show

    Ben Brantley

    October 7, 2016: For those of you who can’t wait for the promised reincarnation of the prime-time soap de luxe “Dynasty” on CW, there’s plenty of glamorous backstabbing, diva dissing and sexual double-crossing in downtown New York these days, courtesy of an uptown establishment. And far more than any swanky 1980s television reboot, this production has every right to claim the name “Dynasty” for itself. It is instead called “Fit for a Queen,” which would in fact work just fine for a show featuring Joan Collins or her latter-day impersonators. But the title character in Betty Shamieh’s bouncy, bumpy comic melodrama — a Classical Theater of Harlem production that opened this week at 3LD Art & Technology Center in the financial district — is the real thing. A queen, I mean, and not just of the self-dramatizing type.
