If you close-watch Tina Fey's Mean Girls, you might find that there's more than a few parallels to the ancient Rome of Shakespeare's imagining. For starters, there's jealously, backstabbing, and plenty of quotable lines. Julius Caesar is the leader of Rome, instituting reforms and inciting envy among his senators who, thanks to the power-hungry, rumor-mongering Cassius, believe that Caesar intends to turn the republic into a monarchy under his indefinite rule. Cassius tricks Caesar's friend Brutus into going along with an assassination plot ("We should totally just stab Caesar!") and things spiral out of control from there. Don't miss this staged reading of Shakespeare's tragedy.
