Shakespeare’s most tragic hero squares off against his greatest villain in a fast-paced tale of jealousy, betrayal and vengeance. Watch as Iago leads “The Moor” to the edge of sanity by weaving a trail of deceit about the loyalty of a friend and a wife’s fidelity. The drama unfolds in a pulsating stripped-down production that features an all-female cast!

“We have assembled an unrivaled cast of women to tackle one of Shakespeare’s most masculine plays,” said Titan’s Artistic Director Lenny Banovez, who directs the production. “Following the success of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and A Christmas Carol, OTHELLO is a dynamic end to our exciting season.”

Banovez previously helmed Titan’s productions of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Romeo and Juliet andHenry V. OTHELLO is produced by Titan Theatre Company Managing Director Kevin Beebee.

The cast of OTHELLO will feature Leah Dutchin (American Players Theatre, Milwaukee Rep, Chicago Shakespeare) as Othello with Emily Trask (Lincoln Center: The Oldest Boy, Yale Rep, Alley Theatre),Carol Linnea Johnson (Broadway: The Full Monty, Mamma Mia!, Utah Shakespeare), Laura Frye (Teatro Franco Parenti, Virginia Shakepeare), Abbey Siegworth (American Players Theater, Dallas Theatre Center), Leah Gabriel, Alyssa Van Gorder, Molly Densmore, Deanna Gibson, Kate Gunther, Alex Spieth and Carolynne Warren. The understudies are Maggie Wetzel, Bailey Seeker, Skyler Volpe andSierra Tothero.
