Caesar Maximus

Julius Caesar’s ambition, writing, generalship and brutal death on the Roman Senate floor continue to fascinate us more than 2,000 years later. Our panel will discuss both why Caesar continues to hold our attention, and the related world premiere of "Caesar Maximus," which will be staged by We Players at the Music Concourse this fall. This new multi-disciplinary, site-integrated adaptation explores power, grief and the blind fury of a righteously angry mob. It also incorporates popular entertainment elements from the Opera and the Circus, opening up Shakespeare’s greatest political parable for our own tumultuous time. A crowd is expected to attend. Et tu?
