BWW Review: Door Shakespeare's Fiercely Human JULIUS CAESAR Examines Political Friends and Foes
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Jul 18, 2016

While William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar dramatically retells history through rich verse, Door Shakespeare at Baileys Harbor's Bjorklunden gives the play a fiercely human touch in this intimate garden setting.
