10. Julius Caesar (Brooklyn)
In director Phyllida Lloyd’s London-birthed revival, orange is the new Bard. The setting is a women’s prison, where inmates act out the bloody tragedy and give an ironic charge to the conspirators’ calls for ”Liberty! Freedom!” The all-female cast, led by Harriet Walter as a butch, spliff-lighting Brutus, prove that women can be every bit as strong — and deadly — in letting slip the dogs of war.
