University is proud to present “Julius Caesar.”
What better time than an election season to bring William Shakespeare’s
timeless play about politics, mobs, and demagoguery to the stage. Beginning
with Caesar’s return to Rome in triumph after the war, there is already
discontent among some who would say that Caesar desires to be king and ending
with a new regime, we are confronted with characters who wrestle with what
ambition is and how power is used.
Director Jack Young,
Head of Professional Actor Training Program, Associate Professor of Acting and
Movement, is also the Artistic Director of the Houston Shakespeare Festival.
His most recent directing was the acclaimed production of “Much Ado About
Nothing,” this past summer for the Houston Shakespeare Festival at Miller
Outdoor Theatre. Young was nominated for
