The Ides of March Julius Caesar

One of Shakespeare's Plays, No Director, One Rehearsal, at a Bar

Posted by LisaAdams on February 22, 2020

The newly formed Shakespeare From the Ground theater ensemble in La Crosse announces their second production in partnership with Pearl Street Brewery. They will be bringing The Ides of March Julius Caesar to life in a unique way Tuesday, March 24, 2020. The group is modeled after the premise developed by Chicago’s The Back Room Shakespeare Project of performing one of Shakespeare’s plays in the spirit in which it was written.

The vision for Shakespeare from the Ground is to develop and connect a dynamic group of experienced performers to a network of businesses willing to collaborate in the exploration of the works of Shakespeare as they were meant to be played: by actors, for the rowdy patrons on the ground.

Shakespeare from the Ground believes that Shakespeare is for everyone. The mission is to make the works of Shakespeare interesting and accessible to audiences through high energy, raw performances developed through actor collaboration rather than artistic direction by a single voice.

You’re invited to find out firsthand what happens when this group of dedicated actors who understand their work take one of Shakespeare's plays, eliminate the director, and are willing to step into the chaos. Mark your calendars for the second performance from Shakespeare from the Ground: The Ides of March Julius Caesar.
