Photo Flash: First Look at James Vincent Meredith and More in OTHELLO at Chicago Shakespeare

Fresh from Shakespeare's Globe and the Royal Shakespeare Company, renowned British director Jonathan Munby returns to Chicago to stage Shakespeare's most intimate tragedy.

OTHELLO, featuring James Vincent Meredith in the title role, continues the Theater's Shakespeare 400 Chicago celebration, now through April 10, 2016. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

In a black and white world, Othello and Desdemona fall in love, but the distinguished commander knows no maneuvers for the affairs of the heart. A stranger in a strange land, he falls under Iago's spell, mistaking a lethal enemy for his closest ally. Here, Shakespeare excavates the most elemental of human emotions: the all-consuming passion of love and jealousy.
