JULIUS CAESAR by William Shakespeare
Directed by Kathleen Akerley
The story is all too familiar: Julius Caesar reunites Rome after a bloody civil war, and returns home to be crowned Emperor. His assassination is meant to restore Rome to former glory, but democracy cannot be rebuilt so easily. A classic, passionate story about what we’ll sacrifice for a chance at a better world. For our 30th Anniversary Season, we present Shakespeare's tragedy in a multimedia production that promises to be both epic in scope and rawly visceral in impact.
