Shakespeare's tragedy, believed to have been written in 1603. It is based on the story "A Moorish Captain" by Cinthio, first published in 1565. This tightly constructed work revolves around four central characters: Othello, a Moorish general in the Venetian army; his beloved wife, Desdemona; his loyal lieutenant, Cassio; and his trusted but ultimately unfaithful ensign, Iago. Given its varied and enduring themes of racism, love, jealousy, betrayal, revenge and repentance, Othello is still often performed in professional and community theatre alike, and has been the source for numerous operatic, film, and literary adaptations.Takes place Thursdays thru Sundays, July 28-August 21.

With his falsetto flights, propulsive guitar playing, and crisp work as a bandleader, this soul music revivalist will bring the same energy that he’s displayed at the Montreux Jazz Festival and SXSW.

Concert | Afrobeat: Okayafrica / Davido / Antibalas
In this beat-driven doubleheader, Okayafrica—the source for “all that’s hot and jumping in the new African renaissance”—bridges the funk-infused Afrobeat popularized in 1970s-era Nigeria to the next wave of charttopping African club music. Brooklyn-based ensemble Antibalas opens the show in the pure Afrobeat spirit of the legendary musician and activist Fela Kuti. Then 23-year-old Nigerian artist-producer Davido, who Fader hailed as “the future of African pop,” takes over the stage, injecting his signature electronic “Afrobeats” into an exhilarating blend of traditional African music, hip-hop, funk, and pop.

Theater | Shakespeare in the Park: Troilus and Cressida
Tony-winning director Daniel Sullivan returns with one of the Bard’s most rarely produced plays, Troilus and Cressida. Both warriors and lovers play hard to get in this surprisingly modern epic about the hot blood, hot thoughts and hot deeds of the ancient Greeks. In the 7th year of the Trojan War, Troilus, a young prince, pines for the affections of Cressida, a bright young woman who knows how to play it cool. Meanwhile, the heroes of the Iliad – Ajax, Ulysses, Achilles and the kings they serve - debate whether to return the dangerously beautiful captive Helen or continue to fight without end. Nations and lovers alike do battle in this funny, piercing drama about romance and revenge in a world at war.
