Julius Weezer

El Portal Theatre
5269 Lankershim Boulevard North Hollywood

Have you ever wondered what really happened to Julius Caesar on the Ides of March? The Troubies have…and are warning you to “Beware the Ides of March in May!” The terrible tidings and twisted tale of corruption, betrayal, and the quest for absolute power –no, not Washington DC - it’s Rome circa 44 B.C., with Shakespeare’s story of Caesar mashed up with the funk-rock riffs of the resurgent and ubiquitous band, Weezer. This hard-driving, heart pounding, adrenaline rush of a show will feature the Troubies in all their classical glory - speaking the speech and strumming the power chords. Part circus, part improv comedy show, part rock concert - with a live band that complements and compels the Troubie cast as they wind their way through the dark and dangerous world of Julius Weezer! Enjoy the madness with the Troubies and you will be able to say: “I came, I saw, I conquered…and I rocked out!

Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...Shot through with moral ambiguity, Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” provides the troupe with particularly meaty — and ever-topical — material. The strongman title character is loved by the crowd but feared by the elite. Vowing to take him down, conspirators claim they are acting to save the republic from a dictator. Orations function like social media, swaying the populace into opposing camps. The bracing irony of L.A. rock band Weezer cleverly complements the tale."

"...In the end, the Troubies spin their tale as only they can, with feet planted firmly in the text and eyes on the punchline prize."

Stage Raw - Highly Recommended

"...Matt Walker’s direction is tighter and more focused on the story than it usually is, which is appropriate for this darker-than-usual play. While his adaptation honors the material, it also finds room for an (apparently) extremely delicious cupcake, Nerf crossbow bolts, a usage of “Great Caesar’s Ghost!” that would make Perry White proud, and a guy spending a good chunk of the show impaled with a spear yet seemingly unimpaired. Also, the show features the line, “Mischief, thou art afoot,” which prompts the tossing of a rubber foot onstage, so fans of puns and prop comedy may equally rejoice."
