We have added a special appearance of Order due to audience demand, and our very own director will (MOST LIKELY) be there. Also…keep an eye out for the playwright Christopher Stetson Boal, where the seeds of this brilliance came from…he’s often lurking about in dark corners…
Great interview where Chris talks about his experiences that led up to him working with Oberon, working with Austin, and the dark side he had to channel to create this modern masterpiece.
Oberon’s Summer Rep is upon us, and NOW PLAYING through June 26th at Theatre Row on 42nd street: Othello, directed by Cara Reichel and Order by Christopher Stetson Boal, directed by Austin Pendleton.
Order is the darkly hysterical and ultimately tragic story of Thomas Blander, a former philosophy teacher determined to be mild and polite in a violent and greedy world. His plan goes awry, however, when he is seemingly possessed by a demon who claims to be an ancient creature of power and who brings an entirely different philosophy - one that includes an undeniable lust for power and an insatiable appetite. “Take what we want. Eat when we’re hungry. Regret nothing.” Buy tickets HERE
Othello: The music of Vivaldi and the rhythm of the djembe interweave with Shakespeare’s elegant language in this tragic masterpiece. As characters dance through the Bard’s most intricate and compelling plot, OTHELLO illuminates the fine line between the cerebral and the animal in all of us. Our goal is a fast-moving, high-octane production —one which is accessible to audiences new to the play, and which illuminates the characters in a new light for those already familiar with this tragic masterpiece.
