1st Night Photos: Lloyd's ladies hail Caesar
Date: 5 December 2012
Phyllida Lloyd's all-female staging of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar opened at the Donmar Warehouse last night (4 December 2012), featuring a cast led by Frances Barber as Caesar, Harriet Walter as Brutus, Jenny Jules as Cassius, Cush Jumbo as Mark Antony, Jade Anouka as Calpurnia and Clare Dunne as Portia.
Lloyd last worked at the Donmar in 2005 when she directed Mary Stuart, which won the 2006 South Bank Show Theatre Award and later transferred to the West End and Broadway. Since then she has found success on the big screen with the 2008 smash hit adaptation of Mamma Mia! (having directed the original stage production) and Oscar-winning Margaret Thatcher biopic The Iron Lady.
Julius Caesar continues until 9 February 2013.
