Stayed tuned to www.caligulamaximus.com.“I take so many things with me from this experience with CALIGULA MAXIMUS– gaining more courage to create, a real sense of letting go and allowing things to happen…A strong sense of community with this cast and crew of 30 people from all walks of life, all avenues…
The connection is so deep with this cast. It has been such an honor to be a part of such an amazing journey…Every night we come back is like a gift. Alfred really gave us freedom to explore- which takes you to a completely different level as an artist…I thank him for giving me this amazing opportunity,” said Ms. St. Louis.
