The Actors' Shakespeare Project production of Julius Caesar began performances last night, November 15, at Studio 210 at the Huntington Avenue Theatre.

Bryn Boice's production asks, "What would the world look like if women held absolute power?" An all-female cast explores the ebb and flow of power and the consequences of politically motivated assassination. Julius Caesar is set in a futuristic parallel universe where women hold absolute power and the race to claim the empire spirals out of control.

Featured in the cast are Liz Adams (Caesar), Julee Antonellis (Cicero), Marianna Bassham (Marc Antony), Erin Eva Butcher (Calpurnia), MaConnia Chesser (Casca), Jade Guerra (Metellus Cimber), Charlotte Kinder (Portia), Marya Lowry (Brutus), and Bobbie Steinbach (Cassius).

The creative team includes Cristina Todesco (set design), Jen Rock (lighting design), Rebecca Jewett (costume design), Amy Altadonna (sound design), and Abigail Shenker (props). Samantha Layco is the stage manager and Deb Sullivan the production manager.

Performances continue through December 17.
