Gender roles flipped in Cincinnati Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar”

Cry havoc! at the Cincinnati Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar"

If you don’t know anything about William Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar,” then here’s the skinny: the play details the events leading up to the most famous political assassination in history and its aftermath on those involved.  In so many words, it’s a literary classic.

But the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company (CSC) is putting a new twist on this old classic.  For their production of “Julius Caesar” the gender roles have been reversed, and an all female cast has taken the stage in this current adaptation of what is typically a male-dominated play.

The CSC production has garnered critical acclaim, receiving a score of five stars (out of five) from CityBeat – Cincinnati and a positive review from

Ticket prices are adults $28, seniors $24, and students $10!

The CSC is less than a 15 minute drive from The Drexel at Oakley Apartments.
