What Says the Soothsayer

This has to be one of the most out there productions of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” ever, so it must be from Lit Moon. How do you add a Lou Reed-ish musical score, a Finnish speaking soothsayer and a minimal/flexible set to this evergreen work and stay true to the bard’s original? Ask John Blondell and the wizards of the “Moon.” Set in a militaristic time not unlike our own, this play digs deeply into the disasterous consequences brought on by ambitious soldier/politicians and their blind and changeable followers, and it questions the very meaning of democracy and the legitimacy of rulers. Apropos for these troubles times, no?
