Photo Flash: The Characters of Guerrilla Shakespeare's AND TO THE REPUBLIC on Magazine Covers!
Our American republic has weathered political strife, assassinations, even a civil war - but what if the conspiracy came from the top? It happened in Rome on March 15th, 44 BCE, and the most powerful country on earth -a republic that had endured for more than 400 years - slipped in the waiting arms of an empire. The Guerrilla Shakespeare Project takes Shakespeare's version of that infamous moment in history - as told in Julius Caesar, Antony & Cleopatra, and Coriolanus - and strips them down before rebuilding them from the ground up to examine the ramifications of the assassination of a President by setting original text against a contemporary 24-hour news cycle.
