Julius Caesar at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival




Julius Caesar at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival is an absolutely brilliant production.

Shakespeare's words come to life through vivid portrayals of the characters by the whole cast. It's a play about how absolute power corrupts. Caesar is an overly ambitious leader and wants to be adored, he thinks that he alone can rule Rome.
His controversial leadership puts the whole society of Rome in jeopardy. Caesar makes many enemies, whom he thinks are his friends. Even when he is warned "Beware the Ides of March" he will not heed the warning because he thinks he is invincible.
These intense issues in Shakespeare's play are very relevant in our modern world.
The success of the show is due to the unique vision of director Shana Cooper who's lively and bold interpretation of Shakespeare words have the whole audience on the edge of their seats. Shana and choreographer Erika Chong Shuch have created beautifully stylized and striking battle scenes full of intense modern dance movements, this is a very original way of interpreting how gruesome battle is.
This is a must see play and one of the best productions we have seen at OSF.

Oregon Shakespeare Festival Redesigns Brick Courtyard.


Dramatic changes are taking place on the uneven aging sloping brick courtyard that we all know between the three main theaters of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland Oregon.

When it's finished in late spring there will be more seating and a larger grassy area but most importantly the sloping bricks will be replaced by a more friendly terraced design. It will greatly improve the Green Show experience. Starting in June Theatre goers and locals alike enjoy a large variety of live Green Show performances. The outdoor stage welcomes performers from around the country and the world, there are dancers, singers, acrobats and music of all kinds. No tickets, no money and no age limit, this free show welcomes everyone to a 45 minute show 6 evenings a week starting at 6.45 pm. The newly designed space will have more seating and provide better access for everyone.
See you on the New Bricks!
