I'd rather watch "Orange is the New Black" than some old Renaissance drama.
Julius Caesar
St. Ann's Warehouse
Through Nov. 3

Another Shakespeare import from London, the Donmar Warehouse's all-female Julius Caesar is set in a women's prison and uses Shakespeare's take on the Roman history to look at female incarceration — just like your favorite Netflix drama! Directed by Phyllida Lloyd, of Mamma Mia! and "The Iron Lady" fame, the production has received wide acclaim, especially for Harriet Walter as Brutus and Frances Barber as Caesar.
