Even among Shakespeare's "greatest hits," Othello has a special place. Few works are this sexy, this dangerous, this relevant to the passions and evils of the modern world. Othello, a Moorish general in the Venetian army, and his new wife, Desdemona, seemingly have it all -- true love, success and happiness. But can anyone protect them from "honest" Iago, a master magician of deceit? The inspiration for villains as varied as Milton's Satan and Breaking Bad's Walter White, Iago is one of the most hypnotically evil characters ever created. This is Shakespeare's profound tragedy of the power of love and jealousy. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“Nothing in future feels thoughtless: from the Multi-touch-like motions with which Larsen manipulates her presentation to the smashed electronics, broken for fear of bugging, that fill the terrorist hideout. With the help of Mimi Lien’s origamilike scenic design and Casi Pacilio’s buzzing soundscape, Fagan achieves the solidity of place that so often evades theatrical sci-fi.” —_Willamette Week _
“Harrison’s vision of a totalitarian global corporation controlling information is hardly a new conceit, but he uses it effectively to make us think about the way seemingly mundane changes to the way we communicate can affect intellectual freedom, privacy and meaning.” —The Oregonian
