"This production is an opportunity for New York Theatre Workshop to do what it aspires to do – to foster the growth and accomplishment of the artists we believe in,” said artistic director James C. Nicola. "When Sam Gold, a longstanding member of our NYTW Usual Suspects community, came to us with the beginning sketches of this production, with these two sublime actors, it seemed the perfect next step for us to take together. I’m eager to see what these original, creative artists come up with in response to Shakespeare’s enduring tragedy."
Tickets to Othello are available with a 2016-17 package, on sale via NYTW.org or by calling (212) 460-5475.
NYTW's fall production is Lazarus, the new stage collaboration from David Bowie and Enda Walsh that is inspired by the novel "The Man Who Fell to Earth." Tickets for the production sold out within hours, prompting a three-week extension. Performances begin Nov. 18.
