In our unyielding effort to bring an evermore diverse repertoire of shows to our members, we are pleased to announce that the global phenomenon, Othello: The Remix, will have a Jukely guestlist!
Othello: The Remix is an 80-minute, exuberant spin on Shakespeare’s tragic tale proving that the Bard himself was the original master of rhythm and rhyme. The show features five cast members: GQ (Iago/Brabantio), JQ (Roderigo/Loco Vito/Bianca), Jackson Doran (Cassio/Emilia), Postell Pringle (Othello) and DJ Supernova (DJ).
Written, composed and directed by The Q Brothers and developed with Rick Boynton is making its New York debut at The Westside Theatre (407 W. 43rd), for which previews began Tuesday, October 25th and will officially open on Wednesday, November 16th.
This is The Q Brothers’ third hip-hop translation of Shakespeare, following Funk It Up About Nothin’ and The Bomb-itty of Errors. And this production brings The Q Brothers back to New York, having last performed Off-Broadway in their hit production of The Bomb-itty of Errors, which also received critical acclaim.
Othello: The Remix had its World Premiere in 2012 at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London and its U.S. Premiere in 2013 in the Carl and Marilynn Thoma Theatre Upstairs at Chicago Shakespeare. Here’s what some of the critics have said:
“★★★★★A TRIUMPH FROM BEGINNING TO END!”
“ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT AND IMMENSE FUN!”
“SUPERB, SARDONIC, WISE, SMART, FUNNY!”
“SOPHISTICATED AND VERY FUNNY!”
