Shakespeare, speaking through the character of Brutus, reminds us that “We at the height are ready to decline.” And in The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, perhaps the first to be performed at the Globe Theatre, we meet the assorted players who gather around Caesar upon his triumphant return to Rome, some of whom plot not just his decline but his demise. It’s a play filled with soothsayers, omens, even walking dead, and Mr. Jordan offers close analysis of the complexities of the main characters and the fateful consequences of their decisions. The play is a rich feast for directors and actors, who, as Mr. Jordan will demonstrate, have dined out for centuries on the emotions it serves up. The play’s the thing: come partake!
