David Oyelowo to Play ‘Othello’

Clap for David Oyelowo, because he has just landed the starring role in the off Broadway production of Othello.

The Selma actor, who has portrayed classic characters on stage in The Suppliants and Henry VI, will take on the lead role, and Daniel Craig (Skyfall) will transform into the villainous Iago.

The show will premiere at New York Theater Workshop next fall. No specific dates have been set yet, so stay tuned.
