Description

Passions and lies run rampant in this tragedy of love and life destroyed by deceit and jealousy. Shakespeare’s drama reveals the power of manipulation as Iago undermines Othello in a deadly game of betrayal.

Director Robert Richmond reunites with members of the creative team behind last season’s Henry VIII, including Tony Award-winning costume designer William Ivey Long, set designer Tony Cisek, and composer Anthony Cochrane.
