Aside from its nuanced treatment of tyranny, betrayal, and the fragility of power, the story of back-stabbed Julius Caesar is a sobering lesson in looking over one’s shoulder. And this production looks back to tradition with a relatively traditional, historically-costumed take on the history play.
But then again, the strength of the acting can’t be discounted, in particular James Corrigan’s calculating Mark Antony and Martin Jackson's intense Cassius. If you're looking for a traditional take on Shakespeare this winter, this roman tragedy is a safe bet.
