Tomorrow I begin shooting / starring in a short film based on a monologue from The Taming of the Shrew, with director Joe Paul.
And, I have been cast in an exciting new Shakespearean adaptation, Othello: The Panther, directed by Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj, running February 1st - 23rd at The Nuyorican Poets Cafe. Tickets available at Red Shirt Entertainment.
"Set in 1982 Oakland, Othello: The Panther follows the re-interpreted character of Othello and the events that led to the downfall of the Black Panthers. Themes such as race, politics, power and fear, which are highlighted throughout Othello, closely align with the principles the Black Panthers were thought to be founded on and the impression that most of the general public had of the group."
