Comment: Re: SHK 8.0769 Re: Patrick Stewart as Othello
Oh, how times change: I have a vivid mental image of Patrick Stewart
"blacked up" as a *very* deep-complexioned Aaron the Moor in *Titus* in
Trevor Nunn's Roman season at the RSC in '72-'73; he also played
Cassius, Enobarbus (recorded on video), and a beplumed Aufidius. I'm
glad to see that they've found a way for him to play Othello *not*
blacked up. Times have, thank God, changed.
