Rick Blunt as Iago and Fernando Lamberty as Othello.
The American Shakespeare Center (ASC) will stage Othello, one of William Shakespeare's classic works, on Sunday, March 30, at 7:30 p.m. in the Meagher Theatre. Admission is free for Neumann students, faculty and staff. Please note that this show is now SOLD OUT.
In this magnificently complex study of extremes, Shakespeare pairs his most loving and trusting leading man with his most conniving and ruthless villain in a dangerous dance of deceit and revenge. The radiant language of love transforms into delirious ravings as his characters descend into jealousy, fear and rage. Both expansive and claustrophobic, Othello is Shakespeare at the height of his creative power -- a ravishing and unforgettable classic.
In the words of Jim Warren, ASC co-founder and artistic director, "Othello is a powerful and sexy piece of theater. I think it can play like a runaway locomotive going downhill that picks up more and more speed before it jumps the tracks and leaves the characters decimated and dead, and audiences shocked and rocked in its wake."
General admission is $10. For non-Neumann students and senior citizens, tickets are $5. Again - please note that this show is now SOLD OUT.
