By William Shakespeare
There is a tide in the affairs of men…and we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures – Brutus, Julius Caesar, Act 4, Sc. 3
Great words and noble sentiments from a respected and honorable citizen, yet in most modern accounts Brutus lands on the wrong side of history, remembered best as Rome’s most notorious daggered assassin. This abridged version of Julius Caesar, refocuses the classic tale from Brutus’s viewpoint, revealing the path toward his ultimate “call to fate” and contemplating how thin the line can be between hero and villain.

Spooky Action at a Distance

Shakespeare in Hollywood
Lights, Camera, Shakespeare! It’s 1934 and Shakespeare’s most famous fairies, Oberon and Puck, magically materialize on the Hollywood set of Max Reinhardt’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Immediately smitten by the glitz and glamour of showbiz the two fairies get their big break on the silver screen playing (who else?) themselves. With a little help from blonde bombshells, movie moguls and arrogant “asses” the mischievous magic of old Hollywood sparkles in this hilarious romp.
