Photo Flash: Betsy Stage's OTHELLO: A KHORUS LINE Extends Through June 6
"OTHELLO: A Khorus Line" is the Betsy Stage's dedication to the Broadway musical and its evolution. Set in Greece, this "demi" musical asks us to consider what we lose if we don't ask questions. The popular appeal of the show has led The Betsy Stage to extend the run of "OTHELLO: A Khorus Line" through June 6 at 1133 S. Huron St. Denver, CO 80223. Scroll down for a look at the cast onstage!
The hapless demigod Iago returns from a long quest only to be denied his promotion. Furious, he makes a deal with Poseidon to destroy the gods on a journey of their own. There is a caveat. He may not lift a single weapon to affect his purpose. The Greek chorus narrates comments and even participates in this farcical comedy. Come on this journey and watch as a demigod gets the best of Mt. Olympus.
The cast includes Zach Brown (Iago), Jaycee Sanchez (Rodericus), Quinn Marchman (Cassius), Christopher Wells (Othello), Mallory Vining (Medusa), Patti Murtha (Valkyrie), Kaitlyn Althoff (Desdemona), John Franco (Voice of Poseidon), Matthew Davis (Grouchus), Kristin Foster (Chiccus), Kevin Lowry (Harpus), Shelby Lathrop (Eros), Taylor Hartman (Veritas) and Mary Cates (Liberatus).
Betsy Stage Artistic Director Jerian Franco says, "For each production we work hard to transform the entire space - from the moment a person enters the building - to the time and place from which our stories are told. We want to give our patrons more than a show; we want them to have a full experience."
Performances are Fridays and Saturdays, and Thursday, May 14 at 8 p.m. All performances are FREE, donations are accepted. Reservations are required by email Othello@BetsyStage.com or calling 720-328-5294. More info at www.betsystage.com.
