If you have a student who is reading "Othello" in school, I highly recommend you take them to see this. As I have said many times before, seeing a play is 1000 times better and makes it more understandable that just reading it. Seeing a Shakespeare play performed is the beginning of a lifetime journey of loving and understanding Shakespeare!

One of Shakespeare's Greatest Plays?
One of my goals in life is to see every Shakespeare play at least once. Some that I have seen, that is all I want to see them, because they are sad or disturbing. "Othello" is one that I saw performed beautifully but I was not sure I ever wanted to see it done again. However, I will be seeing it again this week. I know it will be well done but I am preparing myself to be disturbed again. Here is a teaser of the play that opens this week by the Southwest Shakespeare Company. If you want ticket details, click on the "head shot" of Shakespeare to the right of this blog and you will be directed to their site for more information.
