About This Show

The Production Company and
Action! Theatre Co. join forces to present
Shakespeare’s Othello in a new adaptation by Tiger Reel.

This is a sleek 90-minute multi-media adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic in which 7 actors play all of the roles. Set in present-day Washington D.C. and an un-named Middle Eastern country, Othello follows two “special ops” military specialists who, upon returning from covert operations, become embroiled in jealousy and mis-trust, and find that they cannot leave behind the violence and suspicion of the battlefield.

The cast includes standout performances from the brilliant Victor Dickerson as Othello, LA Drama Critics Circle-recognized ‘Best Actor’ Jim Hanna as Iago, and TheProdCo’s ‘Spring Awakening’ star Abbie Cobb as Desdemona alongside a spectacular supporting cast in multiple role including Lacy Altwine, Joanna Hubbard, David Lombard, and Sean Spann. Adapted and directed by Tiger Reel, who also realizes the multi-media elements of the production. Lighting is by Matt Richter, and fight direction by Mike McHaffey. Producers are T L Kolman, Amy Mucken, and August Viverito.
