Denzel Washington as Brutus in William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar on Broadway
Features: This production of William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar on Broadway was directed by Tony Award-winning director Daniel Sullivan and starred Tony- and Academy Award-winning actor Denzel Washington. It ran from April to June 2005.
Why We Go: An innovative take on the classic Shakespearean tragedy, Daniel Sullivan's Julius Caesar on Broadway united Academy Award-winning actor Denzel Washington (Brutus) with Saturn Award-winning actor William Sadler (Julius Caesar). Because of its notable cast, Julius Caesar Broadway was performed 81 times with 99% attendance.
- Denzel Washington: Two-time Academy Award-winner Denzel Washington returned to Broadway to infuse the assassin Brutus with his trademark ambivalence. Washington's Brutus was the personification of self-doubt, guilt, and insecurity; at times rambling and incoherent, at times steadfast and assured, he drove the tragic play towards its inevitable conclusion.
- Setting: In Daniel Sullivan's modern interpration of Julius Caesar on Broadway, the time period was deliberately left vague; walls crumbled, metal detectors bleeped, and soldiers in berets and guerrilla fatigues toted glimmering machine guns. The sets, designed by Ralph Funicello, suggested a war-torn city mired in political turmoil; the costumes, designed by Jess Goldstein, suggested that that turmoil was caused by a fascist regime. The collective effect was both powerful and disturbing.
- Belasco Theatre: This production of Julius Caesar on Broadway was made more enjoyable by the comfortable seats, ample leg room, and gorgeous architecture of the Belasco Theatre. First built in 1907, this NYC theatre was renovated in 2010.
Inside Knowledge: This production of William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar Broadway was the first to run on Broadway since 1950.
Do's and Don'ts:
- Do Read the Play: Fans of Shakespearean theatre will enjoy reading Shakespeare's plays just as much as they enjoy seeing them performed. We recommend reading one his plays in a comfortable chair with a hot cup of coffee or tea.
- Do Catch Another Shakespeare Play: Looking for a Shakespeare fix? Try the Public Theatre production of The Merchant of Venice, starring Al Pacino. This Shakespearean tragicomedy, currently playing at the Broadhurst Theatre, is also directed by Daniel Sullivan.
- Don't Miss Denzel Washington: The two-time Academy Award-winning actor and star of Julius Caesar Broadway can be seen in the feature-length films Training Day and Unstoppable, among others.
- Don't Bring the Kids: As with most Shakespeare tragedies, the action develops slowly, the langauge is archaic, and the violence is extreme. Julius Caesar Broadway is a play best enjoyed by adults and children over the age of 13.
