Medicine Show Theatre presents Albert Camus's provocative classic about the mad Roman Emperor, in a new translation. More…
Camus's work combines perverse humor with splashes of vulgarity, and vaudevillian tendencies. Its central Caligula is a wild, unfettered leader of Shakespearean dimension.
See it if you want to see a strong production of the best original play written by an important writer-philosopher of the mid-20th century.
Don't see it if you don't like to think in the theater, or you have an aversion to low-budget productions.
See it if you're interested in experiencing a slightly different Caligula story, other than the incest, pedophilia & madness we often hear/read about.
Don't see it if you expect a masterful production w/thoughtful design of any kind. If you've been to MST, you already know it's worn down & falling apart.
See it if you want to take a chance on a small theater & a very interesting early play by Camus, with eerie parallels to today’s political climate.
Don't see it if you insist on seeing only highly polished productions.
See it if you love albert camus and would like to see how he treated this intriguing character
Don't see it if you expect simple, gimmicky theater. This show is not the greatest play ever written, but it is an amazing character analysis / exploration.
