An in-studio chat with Don Fex about Theatre Kraken's production of Othello

Othello at The Gladstone Theatre, February 2 - 10 (preview Feb. 1)

By William Shakespeare
February 2-10, 2018 (preview Feb. 1)
Tuesday-Saturday at 7:30 p.m., Saturday matinees at 2:30 p.m.
Othello is Shakespeare’s tragic tale of race, love, jealousy, and betrayal. Othello is a Moorish general in a mostly white army and has just married a beautiful white woman. But if Iago, one of his soldiers, has his way, Othello will lose everything. Set against the backdrop of the American Civil War, Theatre Kraken’s production of Othello is scored with slave songs and traditional spirituals, and reminds us that we have not come as far from the race issues of Shakespeare’s time as we would like to think we have.

Suitable for ages 12 and up.
This show runs approximately 3 hours.

Adult: $36 + $3 facility fee = $39
Senior (65+): $32 + $3 facility fee = $35
Student/Artist*/Unwaged/Preview: $20 + $3 facility fee = $23
