Great Lakes Theater Festival (GLTF) will commence its 2010-11 season in the company's revolutionary home at the Hanna Theatre, PlayhouseSquare, with a Fall Repertory that features William Shakespeare's psychological thriller, Othello and Oscar Wilde's witty comedy, An Ideal Husband. The productions will be performed in rotating repertory September 24 - October 31, 2010. The Fall Repertory features GLTF's resident artistic company of actors performing two alternating plays on the same stage over six weeks. Risa Brainin will direct Othello and Sari Ketter will direct An Ideal Husband.

Great Lakes Theater Festival is generously funded by the citizens of Cuyahoga County through Cuyahoga Arts and Culture. In addition, the Festival's 2010-11 season is presented with support from The Cleveland Foundation and the Ohio Arts Council. Media sponsors for the GLTF's 49th season are Cleveland Scene, The Plain Dealer, WCLV 104.9 FM, WCPN 90.3 FM ideastream and WKSU 89.7 FM.

"I am thrilled to kick off Great Lakes Theater Festival's 49th season as Cleveland's classic theater company with a fall repertory that features Shakespeare's Othello and Oscar Wilde's An Ideal Husband," said GLTF Producing Artistic Director, Charles Fee. "This year marks our third season in the beautifully re-imagined Hanna Theatre and speaks to the breadth of experience we are dedicated to creating in PlayhouseSquare. For the occasion, I am proud to welcome back to our company two extraordinary directors, working for the first time in our new home, Risa Brainin and Sari Ketter. Both have long been associated with our companies in Cleveland and Boise and it is a joy to have them working on the Hanna's Parker Hannifin Stage! I simply can't wait to share the outstanding productions that they've created with our audience."

GLTF's 2010 Fall Repertory commences with the Shakespearean thriller, Othello. William Shakespeare's supreme villain meets literature's most tragic hero in one of the greatest dramas of all time. After being passed over for a military promotion and suspecting his wife's infidelity with the man responsible for his slight, vengeance drives the duplicitous Iago to plant potent seeds of doubt in the mind of the Moor. Will Othello fall into Iago's evil trap and forsake his wife, the innocent Desdemona? Culminating in Shakespeare's most powerful scene, Othello weaves a tragic tapestry of jealousy, trust and betrayal. The production features David Alan Anderson, the newest member of the Festival's Acting Company, in the title role.
