(Hedy Weiss’s article appeared in the Chicago Sun-Times, 02/17; review via Ms. Ortiz.)
This month, in a fine confluence of events connected to Shakespeare 400 Chicago — the celebration honoring the 400th anniversary of the Bard’s death — two very different versions of the same story will be on view.
Chicago Shakespeare Theatre will mount “Othello,” in a production staged by the British director Jonathan Munby and starring Chicago actor James Meredith in the title role. And Germany’s Hamburg Ballet will present two performances of John Neumeier’s full length dance version of “Othello” at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance.
