The ASC’s production of Othello was on Thursday, July 8, 2010. The production was in the Blackfriar’s playhouse. It was about 102 degrees F. when we arrived in the garage. I had been contacted Sarah Enloe (my contact there) who sent me pictures for this post. I would like to thank her for all the help. She’s made finding pictures for me so much easier.
This production had many good points! The minor characters really delivered. Montano, Barbantio, Cassio, Emilia and Rodrigo all delivered solid performances. Montano was very regal. He carried himself like a king, honor added the stars that his title excluded. Barbantio was possibly the best actor out there. His rage was uncontrollable when he heard of Desdemona’s love. He was a real angry father figure. Cassio was strong and honest. This is important for his character (see paragraph 4).
