About This Event
On Monday, March 7th at the Miller Theatre, three actors who have recently starred in Othello—Andre Holland (at Shakespeare’s Globe), Chukwudi Iwuji (at the Public Theater), and John Douglas Thompson (at Theatre for a New Audience)—discuss the challenges they faced in playing the Moor. They will also read key speeches from the play. The conversation will be moderated by James Shapiro and Ayanna Thompson, Shakespeare Scholars in Residence at the Public Theater, and will open with a selection from Duke Ellington’s 1957 tribute to Shakespeare, Such Sweet Thunder.
