Shakespeare in the Park's final showing of the Trump-inspired "Julius Caesar" was disrupted again on Sunday evening, the end of a almost four-week run met with controversy.

Brooklyn resident Jovanni Valle, 26, and Salvatore Cipolla, 28, from Oceanside, Long Island, were arrested and charged with criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct, police said.

Both men were given desk appearance tickets and ordered to appear in court on August 16, the NYPD said.

Two men were arrested during the 8 p.m. showing of the production held at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park, the NYPD said.

The play is set in modern times and the man playing Caesar has orange hair and resembles Trump.

Delta and Bank of America pulled Public Theater sponsorship following the controversy. The business-suit wearing Caesar is later stabbed to death on stage.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was shot last Wednesday at a baseball practice of GOP congressmen and staffers in Alexandria, Va., by a gunman who was a harsh critic of Trump and who reportedly made sure he was targeting Republicans before opening fire.
