About this show

Tony Award winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson returns to the Public Theater's Shakespeare in the Park series to direct a sumptuous new production of Othello. Set amid war and palace intrigue in the 17th-century Mediterranean, this tragedy about a noble black Venetian general whose marriage is sabotaged by one of theater's most infamous villains remains urgent and relevant today. Shakespeare's initially lush, romantic vision gives way to a violent tangle of love, jealousy, race, and revenge.
