Philip Seymour Hoffman and John Ortiz star in the Public Theater revival of William Shakespeare's Othello, which is currently playing the NYU Skirball Center.
Peter Sellars directs the updated take on the Shakespeare tale. The production is a special presentation between the Public Theater and LAByrinth Theater Company in association with Wiener Festwochen, Vienna and Schauspielhaus Bochum. Othello features Ortiz in the title role and Hoffman as Iago. The company also includes Julian Acosta, Gaius Charles, Jessica Chastain, Liza Colon-Zayas, Saidah Arrika Ekulona and LeRoy McClain.
