Julius Caesar

Performance Dates

Caesar, beware of the Ides of March.

Julius Caesar comes home victorious with power and popularity. Several senators, fearful for the Republic and driven by their own ambition, conspire to assassinate the Roman dictator at the Capitol. Their brash move plunges the empire into civil war.

Shakespeare's ferocious examination of power, ambition, and responsibility crackles, just one block from the nation's Capitol at the Folger.
