Shakespeare's 'Julius Caesar' carries an important message about democracy, perhaps more relevant than ever before.
"NYC Play Appears to Depict Assassination of Trump," read the headline of a June 11 Fox News article.
You've probably heard of the provocateur behind this show. His name: William Shakespeare. The play in question: "Julius Caesar," a 17th-century classic.
This particular performance was put on by New York's Public Theater, and as many productions of "Julius Caesar" tend to do, gave it a modern setting — showing just how wonderfully timeless Shakespeare can be. That is, togas were replaced with suits and a certain Roman emperor was replaced with a brash, blond-haired billionaire/president.
