Tickets

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK - The world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company returns to BAM with a new twist on Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. Set in present-day Africa and featuring an all-black cast, this visionary production echoes recent regime struggles throughout the continent. The first production from the RSC's newly appointed artistic director Gregory Doran, this staging features sets by Michael Vale and live performances of contemporary West African music, fostering the contemporary resonance of this classic political thriller. According to The Guardian (UK), "...Doran's production gives the play's central debate about the necessary political murder a new immediacy."

The Royal Shakespeare Company has made eight previous appearances at BAM, beginning with a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream in 1971 and most recently in 2007 with King Lear, featuring Ian McKellen, and The Seagull.

Composed by Akintayo Akinbode
Choreographed by Diane Alison-Mitchell
Sets and costumes by Michael Vale
Lighting by Vince Herbert
Sound by Jonathan Ruddick
