Production History

Othello
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Charles McMahon
March 28 - May 4, 2008

The charismatic general Othello is admired throughout Venice for his strength, honesty, and courage... except by the treacherous villain Iago. When Othello marries the beautiful Desdemona, Iago seizes the opportunity to exploit the general's trust, inflame his jealousy, and ultimately destroy him. One of the most powerful tragedies of the English language, Othello is a taut epic of passion and betrayal that crashes to a devastating conclusion.

"A raw-boned, exciting evening to last in memory."
–Philadelphia City Paper  [More]

"Engaging production... as good as the supporting performances are, it's the teaming of Pryor and X that keeps us riveted." –Philadelphia Weekly  [More]

"A juicy, eventful, heartrending production!" –EDGE Philadelphia  [More]

"Fierce theater...the skilled cast is a joy to behold!" –Curtain Up [More]

"An indelible performance... Frank X's realization of the title role alone makes it worth seeing." –Broad Street Review

"[Peter] Pryor has a blast... [Frank] X's transformation is chill-inducing... the pair tear up the stage like the pros they are." –Philadelphia Inquirer

Lantern Theater Company's production of Othello is part of Shakespeare for a New Generation, a national initiative sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts in cooperation with Arts Midwest. Additional support provided by the Pennsylvania Humanities Council.
