Arguably the greatest playwright in history, Shakespeare paints a stark picture of a democracy in crisis. Julius Caesar is a story about a charismatic war hero and democratically-elected leader on the verge of becoming an anointed king, and the extreme efforts taken to stop this meteoric, dangerous rise to power. What makes any story classic is its profound resonance throughout history. Today, as Americans collectively grapple with the assault on the truth, and question the ramifications of absolute presidential power, Julius Caesar serves as a tragic, cautionary tale about our collective responsibility to preserve a government of, by, and for all people. Tickets: $10 general, $5 with a Wheaton ID and seniors.
