'I will do so. Till then, think of the world,' Cassius says this to Brutus in William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. Julius Caesar is Shakespeare's gripping political drama about the fall of Julius Caesar in the hands of a group of conspirators led by Brutus and Cassius. Prince William Little Theatre's production of Julius Caesar doesn't take place in the play's traditional time period and this is certainly for the better. In this production, 'the world' that Cassius refers to isn't Rome, but Russia.BWW Review: TRISH TINKLER GETS SAVED lacks Rock 'n' Roll at the Randolph Road Theater October 12, 2015

The hardest parts of a journey are staying the course and overcoming obstacles. The Oregon Trail, written by Bekah Brunstetter, follows Jane though her own struggles from a teenager in the late 1990's to a present day adult with depression. Whenever Jane hits rock bottom, she relies on escaping into the world of the computer game, The Oregon Trail. Simultaneously, another Jane from Missouri is told that she must leave her home with her sister, Mary Jane, and her father, Clancy, to journey to Oregon in a small covered wagon. Flying V Theatre's The Oregon Trail, directed by Amber McGinnis Jackson, does not successfully complete its journey due to a bumpy production that is full of too much 90's nostalgia, unrelatable present day female characters, and stale jokes.
