Winter Shakespeare 2019



The Nashville Shakespeare Festival’s 2019 Winter production is Shakespeare’s political thriller, Julius Caesar, directed by Santiago Sosa and featuring Broadway legend Chuck Wagner. This edgy, fast-paced production will tell the story of the assassination of Rome’s charismatic dictator Julius Caesar in a compelling, Roman-noir, re-imagining, where conspiracy thrives in the shadows and dark corners of the city.

Jan 10-27, 2019 in Nashville
Jan 31-Feb 2, 2019 in Murfreesboro

Running time: 2 hrs, 15 min.

*This performance uses stage blood during scenes of choreographed violence that may be disturbing to some audience members.
