Burbage Theatre Company Presents Shakespeare's JULIUS CAESAR, Now thru 9/7

Burbage Theatre Company Presents Shakespeare's JULIUS CAESAR, Now thru 9/7The Burbage Theatre Company (BTC) presents Julius Caesar, today, August 23-September 7.

Julius Caesar is a play about men who make mistakes; great men whose choice to act was met with grave consequences. In 44 BC on March 15th, certain few members of the Roman senate, as a means of preventing the ascension of a dictator, murdered Julius Caesar, one of the great rulers of the ancient world. Lead by the infamous Marcus Brutus in the name of honor and the general good, the faction of senators stabbed Caesar thirty three times on the floor of the Senate. What resulted was civil discord and the dividing of a great empire. Shakepeare's masterpiece is a discourse on how politics can be personal, and how political ideals, while honorable in theory, are rarely met as such.
