Take a break from the Obama-Romney stage, and turn your eyes upon one of the greatest political thrillers of all time where they skip the petty speeches and cut straight to conspiracy, assassination plots and bloodshed. Shakespeare's tragedy captures the humanity in power struggles, with shifting allegiances and sacrificial victims, in this compelling retelling the 44 BC murder of Roman dictator Julius Caesar and the subsequent Battle of Philippi, complete with a visit from Caesar's ghost. Just be sure to attend with someone you really trust, so you can avoid uttering the famous phrase to your companion, "Et tu, Brute?" [SR]
