Last Saturday I was accompanied by the lovely Robin to Cincinnati Shakespeare Company‘s commodious theater for a performance of Shakespeare’s Othello.
I always find Othello a tough play to watch, for obvious reasons, perhaps. This production was nonetheless worthwhile, with strong performances by Nick Rose as Iago and guest actor William Oliver Watkins in the title role.
I was a little distracted by the southern accent of Rose’s Iago and the British accent of Miranda McGee’s Emilia, but otherwise found the performance to be thoroughly engaging, well staged, and well played.
Othello runs through March 24 at the Otto M. Budig Theater in Cincinnati.
