Lyceum Continues with "Othello" Feb. 10

Shakespeare’s literary play “Othello” takes center stage in the Kohlenberg Lyceum Series Feb. 10 in the Baldwin Auditorium.

The always-popular American Shakespeare Center returns to Truman for the production of “Othello.” The vibrant plot and rich language encapsulates Shakespeare’s complex study of extremes as the trusting leading man engages with a conniving, ruthless villain in a complex dance of deceit and revenge. The radiant language of love transforms into delirious ravings as his characters descend into jealousy, fear and rage. Both expansive and claustrophobic, “Othello” is Shakespeare at the height of his creative power — a ravishing and unforgettable classic.
