Description

TOO MUCH POWER IN ONE MAN'S HANDS Julius Caesar is a marked man. Adoring commoners celebrate his battlefield victories, but those higher up the Roman political ladder worry that his ambition has grown too large. On a stormy night full of alarming sights and ominous portents, Cassius persuades Caesar's friend Brutus to help him with a momentous task: assassinate Caesar for the good of the Republic. But death doesn't stop Caesar, whose spirit haunts the destinies of his friends and enemies, threatening the republican ideal for which they murdered him. Shakespeare's political thriller explores powerbrokers' strategies-honorable and not-and their unexpected, violent consequences.

Professional reviews

"Stacy Keach's quietly sonorous voice is perfectly suited to the introspective Brutus in this fine full-cast recording. John de Lancie, too, is excellent as Cassius, though Richard Dreyfuss is less convincing in the role of Antony. He doesn't quite capture the restrained outrage of Caesar's most loyal friend, or the irony of his famous funeral oration. At times, it sounds as though the director has rushed the actors in this recording, and the many crowd scenes are a bit awkward, sounding more like scenes of football fans than plebeians. Overall, though, this recording can't help but succeed on the strength of its all-star cast. D.B. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
