Subject:	Othello at Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park

Last night I was privileged to see Othello directed by Edward Stern in 
the Shelterhouse of Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park. The small stage 
drove some of the choices -- only the Duke, sitting at his desk filled 
with reports -- questions Othello after his elopement with Desdemona. 
Esau Pritchett's Othello was lithe and athletic, and in the last scene 
he kills Desdemona with a long suffocating kiss. R. Ward Duffy's Iago 
was excellent, and his jealousy is clearly mirrored by Othello's. 
Rodrigo (Scott Barrow) stuttered; Emilia (Carine Montbertrand) 
surreptitiously drank. Desdemona (Sarah Dandridge) reminded me of a 
young Hillary Clinton -- a woman who can handle herself. The dress was 
modern. Othello and his men wore Navy whites.

Unfortunately, the production closes on October 21.
