LEAN AND HUNGRY THEATER PRESENTS WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE’S JULIUS CAESAR
SUN NOV 10 / 6PM
#OccupyRome! Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar is this year's haunted offering from Lean & Hungry Theater for a special live-to-air broadcast in partnership with WAMU 88.5 at Artisphere. Betrayal, ambition, greed and revenge turn New York City into a war zone. Tune in or join us live to hear this modern take on Shakespeare's oft-quoted tragedy. The one-hour radio production is performed in front of a live audience and broadcast live on WAMU 88.5. The company uses live sound effects and original music to create a contemporary interpretation. It will be replayed Monday, November 11at 9pm on WAMU 88.5.
Panel Discussion: After the performance of Julius Caesar, Lean & Hungry Theater will be hosting a round-table discussion of the play, its class and social justice themes, the role of social media in the arts, and the relevance of teaching the classics in today's classrooms. This discussion is part of our ongoing series, "Food for Thought."
The discussion will begin at 7:15, directly following the performance. The talk will last about 45 minutes, will be recorded for later broadcast on WAMU 88.5 FM, and will be moderated by Kavitha Cardoza, WAMU's Education Reporter.
