Writer and star of Off-Broadway's American Moor, Keith Hamilton Cobb and director, Kim Weild, have been on an important journey of giving voice to all human beings, through the show's main themes of re-thinking Shakespeare and examining racism. Told through the experiences of Cobb, who plays an actor auditioning for the role of Othello and receiving pushback from a white director, and being a black man in America, this provocative new play brings critical issues to the surface and bravely asks the questions so desperately needed to be brought to light. American Moor is presented by Red Bull Theater.
