By William Shakespeare
Directed by Charles McMahon
March 12 - April 19, 2020
Othello is the ultimate outsider but he inspires the love of a daughter of Venice's elite. Their marriage enrages everyone close to them – none more so than Iago, one of Shakespeare's most dangerous villains. Racism, pride, jealousy, and betrayal collide in this timeless tragedy.
Running Time: Approximately 2 hours and 40 minutes, including one brief intermission (subject to change during previews)
Venue Information: Othello will be performed at the Lantern's resident home at St. Stephen's Theater, 923 Ludlow Street in Center City Philadelphia.
