OTHELLO

Genre: Classical
By William Shakespeare, Directed by Cara Reichel

OBERON THEATRE ENSEMBLE is pleased to announce their Rep 2010, celebrating the company’s 14th Repertory Season. Oberon will be presenting OTHELLO by William Shakespeare, directed by Lucille Lortel Award recipient, Cara Reichel.
 
With Daniel Morgan Shelley*, Stewart Walker*, Simon Feil*, Randy Howk, Jennifer Blood*, Jessica Angleskhan*, Matt W. Cody*, Jane Cortney*, Chris Seiler*, David Matthew Douglas*, Nate Faust, Lowell Byers, Whitney Kam Lee and Travis Allen.

The esteemed General Othello promotes Cassio instead of Iago fueling Iago’s jealousy. Iago, in turn, plans his revenge in incredibly malicious ways, causing suspicion amongst lovers and friends. The results are tragic as suspicion grows, trust is lost and Othello is compelled to take action against his lovely wife whom he believes to be unfaithful.


The music of Vivaldi and the rhythm of the djembe interweave with Shakespeare's elegant language in this tragic masterpiece. As characters dance through the Bard's most intricate and compelling plot, OTHELLO illuminates the fine line between the cerebral and the animal in all of us. This is a visceral telling of Shakespeare’s great tragedy of Envy, Revenge and Damaged Love.
