Julius Caesar in Broadway JULIUS CAESAR
Orlando Shakespeare Theater
When men feel they can no longer trust their leader, where is the line between patriotism and personal ambition? Caesar, the most popular general in Rome, is assassinated, leaving two men - the honourable Brutus and the ambitious Cassius - to divide the spoils. But they've acted without Mark Antony, Caesar's devoted follower and determined successor, and soon the world they have fought to preserve is brought to the brink of anarchy. Julius Caesar is a dazzling masterpiece of betrayal, violence, and perhaps most surprisingly - love. Tina Packer, founder and former Artistic Director of Shakespeare & Company in Massachusetts, leads this traditional retelling with a small cast in the intimate Goldman Theater.

What happens when the King's Men arrive for a performance of Shakespeare's latest comedy only to receive word of his untimely death?
