BWW Exclusive: My Riotous Night at JULIUS CAESARBWW Exclusive: My Riotous Night at JULIUS CAESAR
by Leah Lane - Jun 21, 2017

I find controversy delicious. As an avid theatre goer, there are very few times when I enter a theater with no preconceptions about what I'm about to see. Whether it's just the gossip I've heard around or the ads that I skip after 5 seconds on YouTube, I usually have some prior knowledge about the subject matter. This was especially true when I went into the Delacorte Theater to see the Public's production of Julius Caesar. I learned of Oscar Eustis' choice to make the play explicitly politically relevant when I heard about Delta and Bank of America pulling their sponsorships. As someone who sees herself as a socially active artist, I got excited. (more...)

BWW Review: Black Roman Lives Matter in Trump-Themed JULIUS CAESARBWW Review: Black Roman Lives Matter in Trump-Themed JULIUS CAESAR
by Michael Dale - Jun 13, 2017

For the past 400+ years, the title character in William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar has been traditionally regarded as one of the good guys. Oh sure, there was that time back in '37 when Orson Welles staged a production that had the Roman ruler interpreted as a stand-in for Mussolini, but The Bard's text is generally taken as a case where a powerful, but ultimately benevolent leader is assassinated by a group of questionably motivated, dagger-wielding senators who paint him as an ambitious populist seeking absolute power.
