Dear Julius Caesar by the Tiber as performed by us

Dear Julius Caesar by the Tiber as performed by us,

I think that I should never see a play with such a split per-son-al-it-ee….

Who knew Brutus was only Southern in Acts 4 and 5, that Augustus was alternately a vampire, a Scottish lad, and a dramatist, that Marc Antony was a muppet?  Who knew Cassius slipped in and out of an Irish priest’s slanted tongue and always had a cigarette in a corner of his mouth?  Who ever saw fans, parasols, and spoons brandished with such passion?

Who knew that Caesar was killed with (sometimes malfunctioning) bubble guns?

Ah, Shakespeare, little did you think…but such joy you have provided…

Grazie,

MM
