Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare
Directed by Devin Brain
America’s premiere touring classical theatre company presents their diverse-cast production of this Shakespeare classic. With a presidential election year and the “Ides of March” just behind us, take time to reflect on ambition, loyalty, love of country, backroom politics, and the historical patterns we can’t stop repeating.

“Delivered…crisply and compellingly”

X: A New Play by Marcus Gardley
Directed by Ian Belknap
The assassination of Malcolm X—both the story we think we know and details seldom shared—brought vividly and lyrically to life. Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar provides the framework for an award-winning playwright to deepen our understanding of this complex, compelling figure in the tumultuous era of the 1960s.

“One of the most promising contemporary playwrights”
—Broadway World
