Julius Caesar on Charlie Rose

So Julius Caesar was on the PBS Charlie Rose interview show last week.

No, not Julius Caesar the man, but Julius Caesar the play. Director Phyllida Lloyd and actors Frances Barber & Harriet Walter were talking about their all-female adaptation of the play that had originated at the Donmar in London, and that just finished a stint at St. Ann’s Warehouse in New York City.

Their production is set in a female prison, a very hierarchical setting, befitting a play about the intersection political structures and violence.

It’s a great interview… would love to see this play (and not just because we’re covering it for the next two months)!
