Published by austin on

david-oyelowo-solo-2560x1440Patricia Burke-Hickey, Instructor of English at Phillips Exeter Academy, talks about seeing two possibly landmark interpretations of William Shakespeare’s Othello back to back: the New York Theatre Workshop production starring David Oyelowo (Martin Luther King Jr. in Selma) as the Moor and Daniel Craig (James Bond) as Iago, and Othello: The Remix, written by and starring The Q Brothers. Featuring the differences between moments on the page and moments on the stage, reaching out and touching Daniel Craig (or wanting to), finding hilarity in tragedy, the power of intimacy, and honor among (artistic) thieves.
