"The amoebalike ensemble, which sometimes seems to swell to include the entire audience of 1,800 citizens, does unusually fine work: a crucial element in a play about the manipulation of crowds" - The New York Times [Julius Caesar]

 "This surging Roman mob has real numbers, and its fickle allegiances to one demagogic political figure after another makes it genuinely frightening" - Variety [Julius Caesar]
