“Julius Caesar”

Shakespeare wrote Julius Caesar in 1599 – a watershed year for him as playwright, and member of the theater he held shares in and wrote for, the Lord Chamberlain’s Men.  That year, the company opened the first Globe Theatre, and Shakespeare wrote As You Like It, Henry V, Hamlet, and the play you are about to see.  Lit Moon focuses on the personal nature of the story, as a tragedy between friends, and as a play about the catastrophic effects that occur when signs, portents, and intuitions are ignored, misread, or otherwise misinterpreted.
