JULIUS CAESAR captures key features of our modern political moment, making it an engaging play to bring to schools as they work with their students to make sense of current events. The play grapples with timeless questions of power and ambition, of what moral sacrifices we are willing to make in the name of our ideals, and of the inevitable consequences of linking violence to politics. In an expansion of The Acting Company’s five-decade relationship with the Juilliard Drama Division, our school touring productions will for the first time feature casts of current Juilliard acting students as we bring free Shakespeare to students in every corner of New York City.
