“There’s much to recommend in the CNY Playhouse Production Theater is about taking risks…..the “Othello” company finds an engaging and consistent inner life.” – Len Fonte syracuse.com

Our annual Shakespearian production is back. We proudly present the tale of William Shakespeare’s Othello. Against all customs Othello and Desdemona fall in love. However Iago, jilted over Othello’s rise to power, unleashes his revenge by ensnaring Othello’s friend Cassio and duping the witless Rodrigo. The tale of Othello and his ill-fated love to Desdemona will be told in an updated unique setting.
