A New York Premiere. The vivid reimagining of the classic Othello, The Cause, My Soul spotlights the untold stories of some of William Shakespeare’s famous, (or infamous) characters: Othello, Desdemona, Iago, Emilia, and Cassio. The Cause, My Soul explores the plausible interrelationships of these characters as well as the flirtation, the romance, the comedy, and the drama of Othello’s journey into love and politics. How does Othello woo Desdemona? Were Othello and Emilia lovers? Was Othello a Muslim before he was a Christian? What brought Cassio and Iago and Othello to the place where Shakespeare launched the telling of his tale of Othello? That is what Ted Lange has created and it is pure joy and genius.

Playwright Ted Lange delivers a master piece that blends the modern billiance of Lange with the undeniable and enduring mastermind of Shakespeare. Remaining true to the characters crafted by Shakespeare, Lange’s tale unfolds in 1571, yet, is timeless and relevant to our modern day society.
