Othello and Desdemona seem to have it all: love, success, happiness. But "honest" Iago is a master of insinuation, a magician of deceit. One of the most compelling villains ever written, Iago draws Othello, and us, into a web of half-truths. Horrified and enthralled, we can't help but enjoy him, as we watch him transform love into hate, success into liability , and happiness into misery. Shakespeare's most intimate masterpiece is more relevant than ever in our multicultural world, where distrust, jealously, and rage boil beneath the surface, causing a dream to turn into a nightmare with the drop of a hint.
