***** Highly Recommended ***** Chicago Shakespeare Theatre’s new production of “Othello” is nothing short of magnificent. “Othello” is probably my least favorite of all Shakespeare’s plays because Iago is a bottom-feeding sociopath, but compelling performances from an excellent cast drew me right in. I was on the edge of my seat all night! “Othello” gets 4 BIG Spotlights.
“Othello” runs through April 10th in the Courtyard Theatre at Chicago Shakespeare Theatre on Navy Pier. Running time is 2 hours, 55 minutes with an intermission. Performances are Wednesdays at 1:00 and 7:30 pm; Thursdays and Fridays at 7:30; Saturdays at 3:00 and 8:00; and Sundays at 2:00. Tickets range from $48-$88. Parking is available at a 40% discount in the Navy Pier Garages with validation from CST. FYI (312) 595-5600 or www.chicagoshakes.com.
