Video has emerged of the graphic, onstage stabbing of the Donald Trump-inspired Julius Caesar character in the latest “Shakespeare in the Park” production in New York City’s Central Park.
Inside Edition posted the video on its website Wednesday. The brief clip shows Caesar (actor Gregg Henry) bearing a striking resemblance to the president in a business suit, tie and slicked blonde hair, as he is brutally stabbed by his associates in the Senate.
The “contemporary” take on the Shakespeare classic — which opened May 23 and will run until June 18 at Central Park’s Delacorte Theater — has sparked controversy for its portrayal of the mock assassination of the president.
