11:27 am: Come See Me In Othello Next Week!
Hey, everybody! I am playing Iago in Open Spaces Theater Company's production of Othello, to be performed in Veteran's Park in Stoughton starting on Wednesday, July 11 and running through Sunday, July 15. No, that is not a very long run, but I hope that some of you will be able to make it.

It's right outside in the park, so if you come, bring blankets or lawn chairs or something--and also bring a picnic for an optimally good time! Shakespeare's first audiences ate while they watched. The Blackfriars & Globe audiences probably ate hazelnuts (and threw them at the actors if they were bad)--but sandwiches, potato salad, and root beer work at least as well.

Please do not throw potato salad at me.

I have enjoyed playing many bad guys in the past, and I am finding Iago to be the most fun of any I've done in the past. Mercury Players-related people on LiveJournal will also enjoy Andrea Kleiner's wonderful performance as Emilia.

Wow, congratulations!!

Don't think I'll be able to make it, given the location issue and all that, but I'm really glad you found a part you enjoy and can really sink your metaphorical teeth into.

Actually, I prefer not to be limited to metaphorical teeth.

I hope that the Twin Cities are treating you & Shelley well!

They are. You may have read about my new gig, and we are attempting to make new friends and get involved in the theater scene here.
