Last night I saw a wonderful production of “Julius Caesar” directed by Jeff Wise (NYU Grad Acting Alum) at The Wheelhouse Theater Company. Very impressed with what Jeff did with a cast of six. They told the story with a clarity and excitement that is not often seen in a company with a much larger cast. In the company were former Grad Acting students Matt Harrington, David Kenner, Ben Mehl and Brendan Titley.
“Julius Caesar” – William Shakespeare’s account of the most famous assassination in the ancient world, this pared-down production uses six actors and transformative design to distill the timeless themes of envy and idealism, reason and ambition, with ominous political overtones that serve as a warning shot across the bow of our current political climate.
This Production will be playing through Sunday the 13th of March.
