The Shakespeare Theatre Company’s adaptation of William Shakespeare’s celebrated play Othello, which stars Pakistani-American Hollywood actor Faran Tahir in the title role, is all set to be staged at the Sidney Harman Hall (Washington DC) from 23rd February’16. The rehearsals for the play are in full swing at the moment.
Internationally acclaimed veteran director Ron Daniels, who has in the past worked on productions such as Hamlet, Measure for Measure, The Tempest and The Testament of Mary, is helming Othello. Ron is also credited as being the Artistic Director ofThe Other Place at the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) and the Associate Artistic Director of the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.). Othello is the second time that Ron and Faran will be collaborating. The duo has worked together back in 1992 when Faran played the role of Theseus/Oberon in a production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream which was also directed by Rob.
