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.

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
