This refreshing take on will's classic puts brutus at center; as refocused “the tragedy of marcus brutus,” is much more interesting than “the death of julius caesar”

See it if brings new depth 2 Brutus as combo idealist/warrior; graphically shows how political violence he unleashes can’t be put back in bottle

Don't see it if several misses: symbolic fighting 2nd Act unconvincing; Caesar not enuf of foil 2 Brutus/see below Read more

Visceral, Accessible, Absorbing

See it if You like Shakespeare up close and intimate. Good ensemble performances. Enthusiastic and exciting.

Don't see it if You like your Caesar in a toga. There's a lot of blood and war dance in place of battle. Unconventional set (distressed sheet rock wall). Read more
