William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar

William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar
Directed by Charles Askenaizer
Associate Director: Tristan Odenkirk

When Caesar’s military prowess and mass popularity put absolute power within his reach, political rivals conspire to assassinate him before he can become Emperor. Through demagoguery, they turn public opinion to their favor. Shakespeare’s tragedy is filled with both action and ideas and will be performed in modern dress in Invictus’s intimate storefront space, the Reginald Vaughn Theatre.

Julius Caesar is part of Invictus Theatre Company’s sixth season, focusing on the theme of Rhetoric & Groups.  The three play season – Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, Katori Hall’s The Mountaintop, and Arthur Miller’s The Crucible – examine the power of rhetoric to move community opinion and action, whether for good or for ill.  More info, tickets, and season subscriptions are available now at
