I would like to think that times have changed since the great Bard wrote those words in Othello, but what a wonderfully, descriptive way of putting it.
And what kind of guy sits in the theatre and reads the whole play from a book as it is being performed before his very eyes by some of the country’s best actors? This is what the man behind me was doing, he must have missed so much. However, he still seemed to be enjoying it and was smiling.
I give five stars to the brilliant actors who played the wicked and cunning Iago, I loathed him so much I could have spat in his face and he would merely have sneared, as well as the jealous and unfortunate Rodorigo who had a wonderfully witty and playful stage presence, though doomed to face a tragic end. The rest of the cast get four stars.
