Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun

Othello

 

The production was muscular, clean and clear. For honest Iago, Cynthia chose the exceptionally likable Paul Sulzman, eschewing casting an actor who would appear from the start as a villain. Cynthia was particularly interested in the women in the play, and Deb Fink as Emilia and Jen LeBlanc as Desdemona both created strong, independent characters full of depth and humanity. There were no victims, and even Iago seemed overwhelmed by the scope of the mischief he had caused by the end of the play. In the year of its 400th anniversary, Othello continued to fascinate.

One exciting outshoot of the production was Aldo and Paul’s overwhelming generosity in giving of their time to become involved with some of our new outreach programs. The actors visited a summer camp for mostly African-American youth from Marin City who were studying and performing Shakespeare for the first time. And they joined Education Director Jonathan Gonzalez and inmates at San Quentin prison in performing an evening of scenes from Shakespeare, the culmination of Jonathan’s 10 months of teaching Shakespeare behind bars.
