Play ConnectionsOthello (abridgment)


My information about this abridgment of Othello, which is supposed to have been presented with "simple settings," is derivative. Its current availability is in doubt. A Shakespeare film with Sebastian Cabot does sound interesting, simply because he was so memorable as Father Capulet in the Renato Castellani Romeo and Juliet (see 538)
