WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Shakespeare's Othello is one of the world's great tragic masterpieces. This definitive study of the power of jealousy, insidious evil and innocent purity delivers a triangle of unforgettable characters: Othello, the tormented Moor; Iago, the consummate villain; and Desdemona, the guileless victim. Othello has not been seen on the Madison stage since 1993. Directing the Shakespeare Theatre's long-awaited production of this gripping tale of love and betrayal is Scott Wentworth.
