Stew and Heidi Rodewald, best known for their collaboration on Broadway's Passing Strange, joined Shakespeare on the Sound's artistic director Joanna Settle and the company of Othello at a pre-show reception that took place on Friday, July 9 in Greenwich, CT.

The event coincided with the announcement that, as previously reported, Stew and Rodewald will create music and songs for the Shakespeare on the Sound's summer 2011 production of Much Ado About Nothing. This will mark the duo's third project with the company, having composed music for Settle's 2009 production of A Midsummer Night's Dream and the 2010 staging of Othello, which played its final performance yesterday.

The company of Othello featured Victor Williams (Othello), Jesse J. Perez (Iago), Stephanie Fieger (Desdemona), Brian Tyree Henry (Cassio), Nat McIntyre (Roderigo), Stephanie DiMaggio (Emilia), Triney Sandoval (Brabantio/Ludivico), Rhett Henckel (Montano), Alexa Salamè (Bianca), and Will Cohn (The Boy).
