Othello, Chicago Shakespeare Theater, Globe to Globe, Shakespeare's Globe

I just wanted to share some photos of the recent production of Othello by Chicago Shakespeare Theater that premiered as part of the Globe to Globe Season and that I absolutely loved. The photos all come courtesy of http://www.facebook.com/QBrothers.

Q Brothers, Chicago Shakespeare Theater, Richard Jordan Productions
A fresh urban take on Shakespeare's tragedy spun out, smashed up and lyrically rewritten over original beats. The Q Brothers are America's leading re-interpreters of Shakespeare through hip hop. The Chicago Shakespeare Theater is dedicated to creating and producing classic productions that unlock Shakespeare's work for audiences from all walks of life.
