by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
directed by TINA PACKER
featuring JASON ASPREY, NIGEL GORE, and ERIC TUCKER
The riveting and bloody story of Julius Caesar heats up the Bernstein stage in this pared down ‘bare Bard’ production, in which 7 actors play all the roles. This psychological drama follows the conspiracy against and assassination of the Roman Dictator by his closest friends and peers and the brutal aftermath of his murder.

“The energy the ensemble projects for Packer’s ‘bare Bard’ production never falters for a moment, plunging the audience headlong into a drama that traces disillusionment with a war hero who would be king of Rome.”
“Under the assured, clear-eyed direction of Shakespeare & Company founder Tina Packer, the new production of Julius Caesar is a gripping look at political intrigue, empire-building, rivalry, suspicion and betrayal.”

“A potent, easy to follow two hours.”
