The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey ushers in the Fall portion of its 2011 Season with Othello -- Shakespeare’s tragic tale of love, jealousy and betrayal featuring a prestigious cast of Shakespeare Theatre veterans including Lindsay Smiling and Robert Cuccioli. Performances of Othello begin on September 7 and continue through October 2 at the Theatre’s Main Stage, the intimate F.M. Kirby Theatre. For tickets or for more information, call the box office at 973-408-5600 or visit www.ShakespeareNJ.org.
The F.M. Kirby Shakespeare Theatre is located at 36 Madison Avenue (at Lancaster Road), in Madison. Not seen on The Shakespeare Theatre stage since 2003, this epic tale of love and jealousy remains as compelling today as when it exploded onto the stage in 1604. Often described as Shakespeare’s most perfect play, the epic downfall of the Moor of Venice and his beautiful Desdemona at the hands of the world’s most infamous villain Iago is one of Shakespeare’s most fascinating and heartbreaking tales.
