New York Film Academy Acting graduate Luis Christian Dilorenzi and Jung Han Kim in co-production with Time Zone Theatre (London) have put together an acclaimed contemporary interpretation of “Othello” tour through England, and now to New York City, after a sold-out run at the Rose Playhouse, Bankside, London in 2015.
This stylish, fast-paced adaptation of William Shakespeare’s classic transfers the action to the cityscape of modern London. In the cutthroat financial world, we dive into an abyss of power and intrigue, riddled with suspicion and jealousy.
Director Pamela Schermann sets this re-imagining of Shakespeare’s tragedy in the meeting room of the corporate’s office. Everyone is under constant surveillance, private and business lives entwine, workers are caught in a bubble without privacy or time off outside the Corporation. There’s always someone watching you, analyzing your every move and waiting for an opportunity to stab you in your back. In times like these, competition is high. But how much can and should we sacrifice to reach our career goals? What if in the end there is nothing left worth fighting for?
“Othello” is currently showing now through August 21st, 2016 at Theaterlab, 357 West 36th Street, New York City, 10018.
