Remove the appearance of sharp racial differences from “Othello” and the difference in the play is so striking that it makes you wonder how may other stories have been distorted in our imaginations by our historical obsession with race.

(D.J.R. Bruckner: New York Times)

In a period when just about everyone producing Shakespeare seems driven to update, rethink or modernize, it’s actually quite refreshing to see a version that mostly withstands the temptation to tinker.

(Les Gutman: CurtainUp)

Bank’s direction is clear, effective, thoughtful and thought-provoking. He’s given us an Othello to reflect upon, and in this day and age that’s no mean achievement.

Joel de la Fuente’s Iago holds the dark hearts of the audience enthralled.
