Marc Pouhé Returns to the Stage as Othello
Othello is the latest production by Austin Shakespeare. This version of the classic play is directed by artistic director Ann Ciccolella and stars veteran actor Marc Pouhé in the title role.
It's Pouhé's second time playing Othello in an Austin Shakespeare production. He first played the role in 2005; since then, he's gone through some life changes, not the least of which was a battle with kidney failure. He's healthy now, but the illness kept him off the stage for a few years. Now ready to continue his acting career, Pouhé is playing Othello again, a little older and with a different outlook on life.
This production of Othello will onstage at the Rollins Theater at the Long Center for the Performing Arts through March 2.
Othello at the Long Center February 13 - March 2 Thursday - Saturday at 8:00 pm; Sundays at 3:00 pm
