Othello The Remix
New York Times
John Leguizamo is proud to present The Q Brothers’ Othello: The Remix, written, directed and composed by GQ and JQ, which will make its New York debut at the Westside Theatre, beginning previews on Tuesday, October 25th and officially opening on Thursday, November 17th. This fresh take on Shakespeare’s tragedy is spun out and lyrically rewritten over original beats by The Q Brothers—America’s leading re-interpreters of Shakespeare through hip-hop. Whether you’re looking for a rockin’ night of rhythm and rhyme or a new way to think about Shakespeare, Othello: The Remix delivers an intense, high energy spin like no other.

“A clever and exuberantly performed mash-up of hip-hop and Shakespeare. The music pulses with life.” – Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
“The Q Brothers have transformed the tragedy into a rip-roaring one-act rich with dizzyin rhymes and slick beats” – Time Out NY
