Theatre for a New Audience√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s production of Othello closed March 7 after a sold-out run at The Duke on 42nd Street, but has not seen the last of its performances. The Theatre will remount the celebrated production, helmed by the Theatre√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s Associate Artistic Director Arin Arbus, to play April 15-24 at the same venue with its original cast.
In his New York Times review, critic Charles Isherwood called the production √¢‚Ç¨≈ì…among the most sensitively directed, eloquently designed and impeccably acted productions of a Shakespeare tragedy that the city has seen in years.√¢‚Ç¨¬ù √¢‚Ç¨≈ìArbus,√¢‚Ç¨¬ù he adds, √¢‚Ç¨≈ìmakes an extraordinary Off-Broadway debut with this production.√¢‚Ç¨¬ù
