Julius Caesar excerpts!

I’ve often recorded duets with myself, so why not a whole scene? ?

I wanted to share something from the (very abridged) production of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar that my #NYU grad acting class performed this past semester (“Teeny Tiny Caesar”) – so for today’s #WeeklyWednesday, I’m bringing you a couple of excerpts!

It was a lot of fun to work on this together (and to take a ‘stab’ at a Shakespearean tragedy), especially under the instruction/direction of the very talented and clever Jessica Bashline! If you’re in NYC and looking for coaching, I’d highly recommend her!

In our production, I played Decius Brutus, a conspirator who convinces Caesar to come to the Senate on the Ides of March (where the conspirators assassinate him). I recorded bits of those scenes from Act II, doing my best to also add in Cassius (Act II, scene 1) and Caesar (Act II, scene 2). [For those who know the play – we cut the role of Calpurnia and adapted the dream to be Caesar’s own].

Thanks, as always, for watching this video and supporting my work! I hope you enjoy it 🙂
