This weekend there’s a lot happening on the performing-arts front, from Shakespearean classics and a reimagined Sabrina Fair to Pauly D of Jersey Shore fame. (His hair counts as performance art, right?)
Friends, Romans, Countrywomen
Never read the play? Maybe Mean Girls can jog your memory.
An all-female cast takes on Ancient Rome in a gender-driven spin of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. Taffety Punk Theatre Company puts on a fierce interpretation of the tale of Rome’s most famous emperor, with actresses clad in all-black street clothes working amidst sparse décor, set to electro-punk background tunes.
Julius Caesar, which closes this weekend, is performed Wednesday through Saturday. $10.
