American Moor

by Keith Hamilton Cobb

directed by Paul Kwame Johnson

What is the Role of a Lifetime? What is the Role of a Life? Keith Hamilton Cobb breathes his life into a new Othello, an actor who is continuing the footsteps of his cultural heritage and theatrical legacy into a modern world that deeply understands neither. He is defiant and broken-hearted, but most of all courageous as he answers the repeated call to not only play the part but come to terms with his own bias, our veiled racism, and Shakespeare’s misunderstood Moor. The man is authentic, the material is original, and the experience is an intellectual, humorous, and emotional roller coaster that still resonates inside of me. I’ll never see Othello again without thinking of Cobb’s journey with him” - Gary Sloan, Director, Actor, Author of In Rehearsal
