Julius Caesar is one of several of Shakespeare's plays based on events of Roman history. Its enduring themes dealing with power, loyalty and friendship, as well as the twin questions of what constitutes good government and how to achieve its orderly transfer, have resonated with audiences down the centuries. |
The professional cast is headlined by Allen Edge as Julius Ceasar, Laura Gray as Marc Antony, Angela Iannone as Brutus and Patrick Lawlor as Cassius (all of whom are members of Actors Equity Association).
Shakespeare in the Park offers a top quality theatrical experience of actors based in the Milwaukee area -- all free to its audience.
