Othello

Backstabbing politicians, two-faced frenemies, gaslighting, treachery, true love and the never-ending cultural complications of a “black ram tupping a white ewe,” Shakespeare’s Othello might as well be talking about this year’s headlines.

Backstabbing politicians, two-faced frenemies, gaslighting, treachery, true love and the never-ending cultural complications of a “black ram tupping a white ewe,” Shakespeare’s Othello might as well be talking about this year’s headlines. And in this production, it does. Othello features Jobsite’s signature modern spin on a favorite Shakespeare play.

there has never been a more likable and splendidly sinister Iago as Giles Davies in Jobsite Theater’s winning production of OTHELLO … this production works because so many of the actors step up to Davies’ greatness … an exciting piece of theater, guaranteed to accelerate your heart rate … It’s been days, and I’m still haunted …. as exciting as Shakespeare gets … an edge-of-your-seat thriller. – BroadwayWorld

What holds up, especially in Jobsite’s production, is how the play dramatizes white constructions of blackness … What saves this production from Shakespeare is its cast. In the first half, Robert Richards Jr.’s Othello gushes with joy at his newfound love. In the second, he sweats and snorts with betrayed rage. Richards and Tatiana Baccari as Desdemona spark with sexy chemistry. Jobsite veteran Giles Davies, as Iago, slithers around the minimalist wood-frame set with a long French braid like a rattlesnake down his back. – Creative Loafing

THEATRE TAMPA BAY RECOMMENDED!
