The Public Theater’s Artistic Director Oskar Eustis directs Julius Caesar, Shakespeare’s play of politics and power, last seen in the park 17 years ago. Rome’s leader, Julius Caesar, is a force unlike any the city has seen. Magnetic, populist, irreverent, he seems bent on absolute power. A small band of patriots, devoted to the country’s democratic traditions, must decide how to oppose him. Shakespeare’s political masterpiece has never felt more contemporary.
