"The Assassination of Julius Caesar"
"Et tu, Brute? ---- Then fall, Caesar!" and Caesar falls dead. In Act 3, Scene 1 of the greatest of Shakespeare's play the Assassination of Julius Caesar is done. With all the knives out and bodies fallen in the foreground, Caesar has valiently fought back until he has been struck by his friend, Brutus. Senators and guards scramble in the gallery as the statue of Pompeii looks on as Rome is plunged into a bloody civil war. This was always my favorite Shakespeare play until I saw a stripped down production of Antony and Cleopatra by Penny Metropolous. I now feel like Julius Caesar and Romeo and Juliet were actually studies for A&C combining both the civil war and the star crossed love story of R&J.
