I saw Romeo and Juliet here, which I thought was a decent production, so I thought to give this play a chance. I understand this theater is running on a shoestring budget and going for a modern twist, but would it hurt the females to maybe wear a chic dress or even well-fitted casual clothing. It really says something when the audience looks more polished than the cast. I would be willing to overlook this completely, if the performances were engaging. Iago was interesting, and the supporting cast upstaged the leads in general. Bottom line, lack of charisma and no chemistry between Othello and Desdemona made me unable to fully enjoy the play. Long stretches of rote memorization followed by jolts of screaming with no buildup, proper enunciation needed throughout. If this is your first time experiencing a Shakespeare play, I would not recommend as you will most likely be disappointed.

RE:3 stars because it's Shakespeare

I saw Romeo and Juliet here, which I thought was a decent production, so I thought to give this play a chance. I understand this theater is running on a shoestring budget and is going for a modern twist, but would it hurt the females to wear a stylish dress or even just well-fitted casual clothing, not flimsy tanks tops. It really says something when the audience looks more polished than the cast. I would be willing to overlook this completely, if the performances were interesting. Iago was engaging, and the supporting cast upstaged the leads. Bottom line, lack of charisma and no chemistry between Othello and Desdemona made me unable to fully enjoy the play. Long stretches of rote recitation followed by jolts of screaming- unnecessary with proper enunciation throughout. Direction, please. If this is your first time experiencing a Shakespeare play, I would not recommend as you will most likely be disappointed.
