Photo Flash: Oregon Shakespeare Festival Presents OTHELLO
The Oregon Shakespeare Festival production of Othello began previews at A.R.T. on Sunday, January 13 at the Loeb Drama Center, 64 Brattle Street, Cambridge, MA. It opens tonight, January 18, and plays through February 9. Tickets on sale now: online at americanrepertorytheater.org, by phone at 617.547.8300, and in person at the Loeb Drama Center Ticket Services Offices (64 Brattle Street, Cambridge).
In Shakespeare's rarely seen and most intimate tragedy, director Bill Rauch (All the Way, Fingersmith) explores society's polarizing struggles with difference. Consumed by their bigotry and xenophobia, those who praised the Moorish general Othello for his military successes now reject his marriage to Desdemona. The newlyweds are determined to overcome this resentment, but Othello's assignment in Cyprus draws them into the web of his lieutenant Iago, whose jealousy knows no bounds. A.R.T. brings the original company of Oregon Shakespeare Festival's acclaimed production to Cambridge.
