Julius Caesar

By: William Shakespeare


About the Show

Babes With Blades Theatre Company reprises our popular all-female cast format to present Shakespeare’s tale of love, loyalty, and betrayal. As classical simplicity meets modern ambiguity – when the honorable path is clouded by conspiracy – how do you choose where to stand?

“With a total budget no doubt less than what Chicago Shakespeare Theater pays its Artistic Director every month, Babes With Blades Theatre Company has created a production of Julius Caesar that is on balance equal to Chicago Shakespeare’s recent production of the same play. With fantastic fight choreography, an enchanting ensemble, and the praiseworthy performances of Maureen Yasko and Kimberly Logan, the Babes With Blades’s Julius Caesar rules.” —CHICAGO STAGE REVIEW
