From The Acting Company
In times of political unrest, must a man die for the greater good of the nation? The assassinations of Rome's great ruler of the Republic and the revolutionary leader Malcolm X share the stage when New York's acclaimed The Acting Company pairs Shakespeare's JULIUS CAESAR with X: OR, BETTY SHABAZZ VS THE NATION, a compelling new play by lauded playwright Marcus Gardley. Presented in repertory, each featuring the same outstanding cast, these two gripping dramas examine two charismatic leaders who rise only to fall victim to rivalry, resentment and retribution.
Moving through time from ancient Rome to a present day war-torn nation, JULIUS CAESAR is directed by Devin Brain, Associate Artistic Director for The Acting Company.
