The New York Shakespeare Exchange's production of William Shakespeare's Othello will open tonight at the Hudson Guild Theatre. The play, directed by Cristina Lundy, will run through Saturday, November 2.

The production's cast features Keldrick Crowder as Othello, Anna Van Valin as Desdemona, and Terence MacSweeny as Iago. Also featured are Carey Van Driest, David Price, Josh Jeffers, Anna Paratore, Anthony Manna, Katherine Puma, David Lapkin, Danny Rivera, John St. Croix, and Matthew Velez. The design team includes G. Warren Stiles (set design), Daniel Winters (lighting design), Orli Nativ (costume design), and Cassie Dorland (props design). The composer is Shane Parks. Alicia Rodis is the fight choreographer.
