Published: Simon & Schuster - January 2004

A play of paradoxes, where personal virtue pairs with political naivety; where tyranny's certainties contrast with bloody civil war; where assassination is charged with love for the victim. No one is fully virtuous or evil, and noble aims misfire into the mire of treachery.
Key characters: Brutus, Julius Caesar, Marc Antony ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

A heavy metal prodigy soars on stage with his guitar and band, writing and improvising songs that seem to unconsciously reach his hands. There's something unreal about his talent. And something unsettling about a female stalker. And something unnerving about the unexplainable yet tangible fear that everything he sought, and achieved, will be annihilated. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare
