OTHELLO – Colorado Shakespeare Festival – Starring Peter Macon as Othello and Geoff Kent as Iago *****

In her directorial debut with the CSF, Lisa Wolpe leads a sterling cast through a thoughtful, nuanced and heartbreaking take on the text. The production brilliantly balances themes of race, class and politics with a central focus on the perils of jealousy and suspicion. Shakespeare’s psychological case study from the Elizabethan Age comes to vivid life thanks to subtle staging, artful lighting and sound design and, most of all, lead performances that bring a stirring depth and pathos to the central characters.http://www.dailycamera.com/entertainment/ci_28454499/colorado-shakespeare-festival-othello-theater-review
