Dave Begel, Dave Begel’s Blogs review

I saw the preview performance of “My Dear Othello,” and it was striking how strong this story is when it’s stripped down from all the extras, both people and subplots.

John Sanford Friedrich, Avant Greensboro review

…this is another example of Greensboro being on the artistic map enough to attract world-stage gems.

…a high-brow performance willing to push boundaries.

Selena Milewski, Shepherd Express review

My Dear Othello’s greatest strength is its ability to prompt reflection on the nature of jealousy through means stylized enough to avoid blind emotionality. The format perfectly serves objective consideration of a phenomenon that couldn’t be further from objectivity.

Theatre Gigante’s ‘Othello’ paints gripping portrait of a doomed marriage.

on the bill before Christmas…
My Dear Othello

Milwaukee Sentinel Journal Sunday, August 17, 2014

#3  Isabelle Kralj and Mark Anderson’s Theatre Gigante has done well by Shakespeare in recent years, inventively adapting some of his classic plays – King Lear, Midsummer Night’s Dream – into compelling and original dance/theater hybrids. They open this season with one of their greatest Shakespeare successes, My Dear Othello, which premiered in 2004 and blends Western and Japanese theater, music and movement into a rumination on one of the Bard’s signature tragedies.
Milwaukee Magazine, Paul Kosidowski, September, 2104

Shakespeare’s final few moments are explored in great grace and detail.
Shepherd Express Online, Russ Bickerstaff, August 21, 2014
