Free for All

Since 1991, the Shakespeare Theatre Company has chosen one show every year to present free to the public. On the heels of last year’s “Twelfth Night,” the company kicks off its 25th season by resurrecting its 2008 production of “Julius Caesar,” the Bard’s story of the conspiracy against the famed Roman leader. Much of the 2008 cast will be returning for the run, and this time, David Paul takes the reins as director in place of David Muse. Free tickets are available by online lottery from midnight to 8 p.m. the day before each show, or you can wait in line the day of. About 200 tickets are reserved for the standby line, so arrive early to score a seat.

Thursday through Sunday, Sept. 4. Shakespeare Theatre Company, Sidney Harman Hall, 610 F St. NW. 202-547-1122. Free.
