Theater that put on Trump assassination play gets new $100,000 grant

The taxpayer transparency group OpenTheBooks.com reported that the New York Shakespeare Festival, which is the parent company of the Public Theater, has received nearly $30 million in federal, state, and city grants since 2009.

The Public Theater’s rendition of Julius Caesar portrayed Caesar as a blond businessman who is brutally stabbed to death.

Corey Stoll, the actor who played Marcus Brutus, defended the play that used a Trump lookalike as “nuanced” art.
