Julius Caesar

'Caesar has gone the way of the dictator' | Mercury Theatre's staging of Julius Caesar


The 1938 Mercury Theatre radio production of Julius Caesar from Orson Welles.

Beware the ides of March. Hear the 1938 Mercury Theatre radio production of Julius Caesar from Orson Welles. On the stage, Welles set the play in Fascist Italy. On the radio, he asked listeners to think of the day’s headlines, to think of the rise of dictators in Europe.

    Fascinating inside look at the Mercury Theater during the Golden Age of Radio! Amusing to hear Orson Welles giving stage directions in the background when he’s not playing one of the parts…

    I have long enjoyed this performance. Can anyone give me the full cast and who is playing who? In the meanwhile I continue to search.
