Protesters again have stormed the stage of a New York production of Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar," whose central character – who was assassinated – has been assembled to resemble the present U.S. president.Police say 26-year-old Javanni Valle, of Brooklyn, and 28-year-old Salvatore Cipolla, of Oceanside, Long Island, were arrested on trespassing and disorderly conduct charges Sunday evening during the Public Theater production's final performance in Central Park.The performance came to a brief stop after several audience members tried to shush Loomer by booing.A video of the Shakespeare play incident was released almost immediately after Friday's disruption, apparently by the protesters who posted it online for all to see.
