Ancient Rome Comes to the Big Apple

Conversations in Tusculum, a play set at the end of the Roman Republic, is now playing at New York's Public Theater. Cicero and Brutus, among others, explore the responsibilities of Rome's aristocrats under the rule of Julius Caesar (pictured). Should they continue to live their lives, oblivious to the Republic's downfall, or should they save Rome from the ruin caused by a reckless man? Tickets are only $50 and the show is playing until March 23rd.
