Drunk people shouting “Down with Brutus!”

One of the most weirdly inspiring experiences I ever had as an actor was during a “groundlings show” (read: late-night drunk show) in college. I was a sophomore, we were doing Julius Caesar, and the audience was entirely composed of thoroughly wasted students heckling their friends onstage. The groundlings show was a longstanding tradition, despised by some but beloved by many.

So, Caesar had recently been stabbed (which was met with a mixture of “YEAH! STAB HIM!” and “Noooooo don’t hurt Joe!”). We’d arrived at the funeral scene, and I was onstage as a citizen/crowd person. Our Antony was played by this incredible young woman - she was from Kentucky, white-blond, a diver, under five feet tall, and fiery as hell. She got up to give the Friends, romans, countrymen… speech. As had been occurring throughout the show, the crowd was going wild. She waited, firmly and silently. They quieted down in anticipation, and she began, pausing with commanding silence every time the crowd got going, until it was time to stir them - these drunk college kids - into a revolutionary fervor. By the end of her speech, the entire, wasted audience was on its feet shouting “AVENGE CAESAR, DOWN WITH BRUTUS!” 

And I was onstage feeling utterly insignificant as a crowd person, because she had incited an actual mob and I had somehow become an oddly well-informed bystander to the real action unfolding.

It was so magical.

The real reason Cassius wants to kill Caesar. He just wants to be included.

I feel like I’m gonna be making a series of these awful out of character JC comics, so I’m saying I’m not sorry in advance.
