Babes with Blades Theatre Company presents Julius Caesar. Rome welcomes back its hometown hero, Julius Caesar. The city’s vocal and visible adoration add to JC’s healthy self-esteem. They want him to be their King. JC’s growing popularity and arrogance gives the Senate pause. A group of rebels fear Caesar will turn the democracy to dictatorship. They decide Julius Caesar must be stopped permanently, recruiting the honorable Brutus to lead the assignation. Are these men patriots or criminals? And more importantly, are they even men? Well, in the Babe’s version, they aren’t. This Julius Caesar is a gender bender tribute to honorable men. O’ Conspiracy!
