Presented by The Public Theater and LAByrinth Theater Company in association with Wiener Festwochen, Vienna and Schauspielhaus Bochum and by special arrangement with NYU Skirball Center.
With Julian Acosta, Gaius Charles, Jessica Chastain, Liza Colon-Zayas, Saidah Arrika Ekulona, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Leroy McClain and John Ortiz
The Public launches its 2009-2010 season with a bold contemporary interpretation of Shakespeare’s most passionate and spiritually-charged creation. Longtime co-artistic leaders of LAByrinth Theater Company and Public Theater favorites John Ortiz and Philip Seymour Hoffman are Othello and Iago, intense and fiery figures in Shakespeare’s globalized contest of deception, ambiguity and overpowering love. Internationally acclaimed director Peter Sellars, renowned for tearing through boundaries with his visionary stagings of the classics, finds in the play a modern resonance that raises a mirror to our own culture’s overwhelming personal and political yearnings. His production charts the new prospects for hope in 21st-century America by measuring them against Shakespeare’s vivid depiction of racial struggle, the fog of war, and the thin frontiers that separate love and jealousy, vengeance and forgiveness.
Watch our exclusive OTHELLO video interviews with Peter Sellars, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and John Ortiz.
