Set in a post-apocalyptic war society, this daring adaptation of William Shakespeare's Othello features radical cuts and mildly modernized language to tell the story of the noble Moor. Ghost Players Theatre's version maintains the wonderfully poetic rhythm, blatant thuggery and deceitful deeds of the original as Othello's life and marriage topple at the hands of his trusted advisor. One of the most compelling villains ever written, Iago draws Othello and the audience into his spider's web of half-truths. Horrified and enthralled, you can't help but be fascinated by him, even as he transforms love into hate and happiness into misery. Learn More

The concept was good--an old Fosse at the typewriter while what he was typing being spoken over the loudspeaker. The ladies were all excellent dancers, but they weren't the best singers in the world, and the male was not a great actor--very highschool-ish production. The woman who choreographed and performed was very good.

Great effort and some good individual stand out actors/dancers. The production was not tight. It lacked a mature direction. I thought at times the narrator, an elder Fosse, was dead r he really forgot his lines. There were some nice moments....continued
