Othello: The Remix
Hip hop Bard action fresh from a hit run at the Edinburgh Fringe
Shakespeare has been adapted in every which way, but this is the remix. The Q Brothers take their cue from his famous tale of jealousy, lust, and war. They rework the story around the greatest rapper-turned-mogul the world has ever seen, Othello. Although it's a tragedy, there's a lot of tongue in cheek humour in this production. Having taken the Edinburgh Fringe by storm, and achieving a standing ovation at the Globe Theatre, they're back to bring smooth beats and the lyrical Bard to London. General admission, seating allocated on arrival. Suitable for ages 13 and over. Approximate running time 70 minutes.
"Superb: sardonic, wise, smart, funny, and mostly in rhyming couplets."
