Photo Flash: First Look at Independent Shakespeare Company's OTHELLO, Opening Tonight!

Independent Shakespeare Co. (ISC), presenters of the Griffith Park Free Shakespeare Festival announce performances of Shakespeare's great treatise on alienation, OTHELLO, directed by Independent Shakespeare Co.'s Artistic Director Melissa Chalsma. OTHELLO will begin previews on Saturday, March 19, will open on Saturday, March 26 at 7:30pm and will perform through Saturday, May 7 at Independent Studio in the Atwater Crossing Arts + Innovation Complex, 3191 Casitas Ave., #168 in Atwater Village. Scroll down for photos of this new production!

In this tightly-wound adaptation of OTHELLO, eight actors bring to life Shakespeare's great treatise on the dangers of faith and love. Othello (Evan Lewis Smith), decorated and revered, marries Desdemona (Kalean Ung), the daughter of a local aristocrat. This unexpected pairing dredges up some unpleasant truths about his adopted community and sets in motion a sequence of events that allows Othello to fall prey to the progressively more brutal machinations of Iago (David Melville). This production is a breathless, suspenseful ride.
