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

Shakespeare's famous 'roman play' is way too long, 2000-outdoor prod/shakespeare in the park, Starry cast: jeffrey wright (marc antony) & david mccallum (title role), Weather (t-storm/downpour) preceded perf, Overrated

See it if What I recall most about the show was the Set which used a black rubberized flooring which proved especially dangerous after the RAIN.

Don't see it if If U don't like watching actors fight to keep their footing on a slick stage, even Marc Antony made a pirouette at one point to stay upright

Clever, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if You like on-target modern versions of Shakespeare, including gender-swapping -- Marc Antony is a woman-- and Caesar-Trump in the nude.

Don't see it if You like your Shakespeare "straight" and prefer to make your own connections to today's politics instead of having it spelled out for you.

Epic, Intense, Violent, Great acting

See it if The acting and language was great, the story lacked as the war is a large part of the play. Not my favorite of Shakespeare's.

Don't see it if If you don't like death, violence, and political based storylines. Take place in ancient Rome.
