Chicago Shakespeare Theater (CST) has announced that The Q Brothers' Othello: The Remix will be Chicago Shakespeare's premiere appearance in Germany's Shakespeare im Globe Neuss Festival July 6 and 7 and return engagement at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe August 1-27. CST is also one of the 37 international companies who will come together for an unprecedented 37-play Globe to Globe Festival for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad on May 5 and 6.

Othello: The Remix, created by The Q Brothers, GQ and JQ, is a fresh urban take on William Shakespeare's tragedy, spun out and lyrically rewritten over original beats. Born and raised in Chicago, The Q Brothers started their professional careers in the Off Broadway hit The Bomb-itty of Errors.

In addition to The Q Brothers, the cast of Othello: The Remix includes Jackson Doran and Postell Pringle.
