The Fourth Wall Presents...Breakneck Julius Caesar w/ Shakespeare by Request

$25 Cover ($20 Students/Seniors) / Start 7:30pm / Doors 7pm

Breakneck Julius Caesar is a wild, one-hour, one-man romp through Shakespeare's three-hour epic drama. Just in time for... The Ides of March!

“60 cardiovascular minutes that leave Mooney sweating, and his audience shouting ‘Huzzah!’”

- Orlando Sentinel

Following an intermission on Friday only, Mooney continues to “add by subtraction,” as Shakespeare by Request features an array of thirty-eight monologues, one from each of Shakespeare’s known plays, in response to whichever plays that the audience might want to shout out.


Chicago-based performer Timothy Mooney is the author/adaptor of "Breakneck Hamlet" and "Shakespeare's Histories; Ten Epic Plays at a Breakneck Pace!" new one-man plays which "crack the code" on Shakespeare's most challenging plays, making them accessible to audiences everywhere. Over fifteen years, Tim has performed his very first one-man play, "Moliere than Thou" over 500 times, giving some hundred thousand students their first introduction to Moliere. He also presents his collection of some of the most amazing speeches ever, in "The Greatest Speech of All Time." Mooney is the former founder and editor of "The Script Review" and also the former Artistic Director of Chicago's Stage Two Theatre, where he produced nearly fifty plays in five years, including many new versions of the plays of Moliere, featuring Mooney's impish sense of rhyme.
