‘Trump Assassination’ Version of Julius Caesar Costs More Than Expected

The big theater news out of New York City this week has been the Free Shakespeare In The Park version of Julius Caesar, which has been more than a little controversial because Caesar is played as a man with a bad combover and an overlong tie, Calpurnia (Caesar’s wife) as a runway model with a Slavic accent, and when Caesar is assassinated by the Senate, the deed is done by women and minorities.

Guess who they’re making into Julius Caesar.
