The Troubies are at it again, and they’ve invaded the El Portal in NoHo to celebrate their 25thAnniversary with Shakespeare’s immortal tale of political intrigue, Julius Caesar, er, Weezer. Teaming an unlikely rock group (Weezer) with a play that doesn’t lend itself to musical interpretation Julius Weezer seems geared to entice a non-Shakespearean crowd with very well-done Shakespearean riffs by the talented, yet demented cast. For sheer fun, this is the show that will make traditionalists happy, while the rest of the crowd keep tapping their feet. It’s in for a short run, so try not to miss it!
