Get out your laurel wreaths and togas: It’s time for another production of Julius Caesar. This time, the Folger Theatre and director Robert Richmond will play up the venue’s proximity to the Capitol and the production’s proximity to the midterm elections by highlighting the play’s political themes and schemes. The House and Senate chambers are locked down with enough security measures that members of Congress needn’t worry about attacks from jealous colleagues, but the Bard’s history still contains some good advice for aspiring politicians. Read more >>> The play runs Oct. 28 to Dec. 7 at the Folger Elizabethan Theatre, 201 East Capitol St. SE. $45–$75. (202) 544-7077. folger.org. (Caroline Jones)
