The Milwaukee Rep tackles the Moor of Venice with this production of one of Shakespeare's later works, Othello. Directed by Rep artistic director Mark Clements, the production mixes ancient text with present-day iconography—it's set in a contemporary bike-gang setting. Rep newcomer Lindsay Smiling plays the outsider title character, who begins a tragic romance with the beautiful Desdemona (Matti Hawkinson). Gerard Neugent plays the villainous Iago, who convinces Othello that his great love is an adulteress.
