Buffer

Today’s podcast features the cast of Lantern Theater’s production of “The Tragedy of Julius Caesar”. I’m often reminded of that scene in Mean Girls where Gretchen talks about stabbing Caesar…yeah, this ain’t it. Did I mention what a stellar cast Lantern pulled together! Stay Tuned!

ABOUT JULIUS CAESAR

The Tragedy of Julius Caesar
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Charles McMahon
February 6 – March 16, 2014

Idealism, envy, and power politics collide as the Roman Republic reaches a crisis. Caesar’s political genius, military prowess, and overwhelming popular appeal make him the most powerful leader the Republic has ever known. But his popularity breeds suspicion among his rivals and some fear Caesar’s power will corrode the freedom of the State. Shakespeare’s vision of Rome is both epic and intimate, from powerful speeches in grand public squares to whispered conspiracies in back rooms and dark hallways. There in the shadows, unlikely alliances set up a chain of events that bring down the great Caesar and thrust Rome into a disastrous civil war. Tony Award nominee Forrest McClendon leads an all-Philadelphia cast in Shakespeare’s timeless political thriller, brought to you by “the city’s top presenter of Shakespeare’s work.” (TheaterMania.com)
