As swift and enthralling as a political thriller, Julius Caesar portrays the life-and-death struggle for power in Rome. Fearing that Caesar’s growing strength and constitutional ambitions threaten the Republic, a faction of politicians plots to assassinate him. But when Caesar is killed, chaos engulfs Rome. Alive with stunning rhetoric, Julius Caesar investigates the intoxicating effects of power and the dangers of idealism. In Caesar, Brutus and the young Marc Antony, Shakespeare created three fascinating, dynamic characters. Shakespeare Theatre Company Associate Artistic Director David Muse makes his mainstage directing debut after several hit productions at area theatres.
This production played alongside Antony and Cleopatra as part of the Roman Repertory.
“ All hail Julius Caesar! Scott Parkinson is terrific…Tom Hammond is excellent…One of the best productions of this or any season.”
