Excellent acting, violent and bloody and in your face, had to turn my hearing aides off because of the gunfire. Students should see this version to better understand and like Shakespeare, kudos to actors and director.

by William Shakespeare

directed by Jonathan Munby in Chicago Shakespeare’s Courtyard Theater

February 5–March 24, 2013

As politicos across the U.S. scramble to discredit and disrobe those in power, a familiar phrase comes to mind: When in Rome… Acclaimed British director Jonathan Munby, whose work has graced the stages of the Royal Shakespeare Company and Shakespeare’s Globe, uses the fractured political landscape of present-day Washington as a backdrop—drawing current events into eerily sharp focus. When men feel they can no longer trust their elected leader and when financial might dictates the rules of the game, where is the line between patriotism and personal ambition?

Julius Caesar is presented in the Jentes Family Auditorium.
