Coming this week to Sierra Cinemas is a “ferocious, immersive” (Sunday Times) Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare.  Broadcast live from The Bridge Theatre in London, this latest production from National Theatre Live is directed by Nicholas Hytner and features a star-studded cast.  Paired down and fast-paced, this modern-dress version of the play runs straight through without an intermission.  The production has been critically acclaimed for its political relevance, gripping action, and unique staging.  Julius Caesar plays twice at Sierra Cinemas – Thursday, March 22 at 6:30 pm with an encore March 28 at 3:30 pm.

Caesar returns in triumph to Rome and the people pour out of their homes to celebrate. Alarmed by the autocrat’s popularity, the educated élite conspire to bring him down. After his assassination, civil war erupts on the streets of the capital.

Nicholas Hytner’s production will thrust the audience into the street party that greets Caesar’s return, the congress that witnesses his murder, the rally that assembles for his funeral and the chaos that explodes in its wake.

The cast and crew for this production are unmatched. Ben Whishaw (The Danish Girl, Skyfall, Hamlet) and Michelle Fairley (Fortitude, Game of Thrones) play Brutus and Cassius, David Calder (The Lost City of Z, The Hatton Garden Job) plays Caesar and David Morrissey (The Missing, Hangmen, The Walking Dead) is Mark Antony.  Fans of the NT Live series will remember Director Nicholas Hytner’s other stellar productions including One Man, Two Guvnors, Othello, Hamlet, and Timon of Athens.
