    Synopsis: 

    Othello, directed by Arin Arbus, Theatre for a New Audience's Associate Artistic Director and 2008 Princess Grace Award Winner (The Grace Le Vine Theater Award), depicts a society where Christians and Muslims are deeply divided. As Othello progresses, Shakespeare shifts the focus from the enemy outside to the enemy within. Although the backdrop is political, Othello is a domestic tragedy about the formation and destruction of a marriage.

    Love Curdled Through a Malevolent Scheme

    Charles Isherwood

    February 24, 2009: "The spring theater season this year is enticingly rich, both on Broadway and off. But I suspect it will not bring a Shakespeare production to equal the gripping “Othello” now blazing across the stage of the Duke on 42nd Street Theater, courtesy of Theater for a New Audience. I can say this partly because Shakespeare has unfortunately become a relative rarity on major New York stages, but primarily because this production is so terrific."
