There were no seats available in the reserved section when we arrived. What the hell did I pay for?

This was awesome. Iago was so mischievously evil and he takes you on such a terrific manipulative ride that it is a complete delight from start to... well, okay, the end... continued

Description

After six seasons in Barnsdall Park, Independent Shakespeare Co. (ISC) is moving its summer festival of free performances to Griffith Park.

In 2009 despite diminished funding, the festival played to its largest audience ever: nearly 12,000. Audience members were routinely turned away due lack of space.

The new site in Griffith Park (at the Old Zoo) can hold twice as many people; is a beautiful and quiet spot; and is readily accessible to plentiful, free parking.

Othello, presented with a multi-cultural cast, stars Cameron Knight, an actor with credits at some of the top theaters in the United States. He leads a cast of stage professionals, whose experience ranges from Broadway, London’s West End, major US regional theaters, and some of LA’s best venues.

There is no seating at the site. Please bring a blanket or lowbacked

chair. It is also very cool when the sun goes down. Dress warmly!
