Othello

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Barry Edelstein

Summary

Summary

From New York’s Shakespeare in the Park to Balboa Park, Old Globe Artistic Director Barry Edelstein makes his debut on the Globe’s outdoor stage with one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies. Despite the prejudices in Venice, the brilliant general Othello excels both on the battlefield and in the halls of state. But when he marries Desdemona, his envious lieutenant Iago sets in motion a diabolical plan to destroy him. With a superb cast led by Blair Underwood (“L.A. Law”), Richard Thomas (“The Waltons,” “The Americans”), and Kristen Connolly (“House of Cards”), Edelstein gives us a riveting, intense, and intimate production where poetry soars and swords clash, where true love and wrenching jealousy collide.
