JULIUS CAESAR BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE Directed By Chris Rivera Stage Manager Maks Kosomov “When beggars die, there are no comets seen; the heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes.” After receiving praise from audiences and critics alike for their smash hit productions of Much Ado about Nothing and Romeo & Juliet in 2014, What Dreams May Co in partnership with Queens Shakespeare Inc. sets 2015 ablaze with controversial, brutal, modern re-imaginings of two of the classical theatre’s most horrifying yet soul searching works. Join us as we shine the looking glass on men worshiped as gods, vengeful gods walking amongst men, and the destructive might of men turned mob. First up…Julius Caesar. Director Chris Rivera (Director of 2014’s critically acclaimed Romeo & Juliet) brings audiences to an apocalyptic Rome. The last glimmer of civilization surrounded by a world in ruin. A city where citizens starve and senators serve as assassins. Where tyrants rule with an iron fist, and are repaid by the grace of a friendly knife. Watch as honorable men become the very thing they set out to stop, while a few carefully chosen words let slip the dogs of war.
