See it if informative, intelligent, dramatic theatrical work intrigues you. A performance I hope to see several times.
Don't see it if you are not interested in the complex and layered experiences of racial prejudice.
See it if if you want to be completely captivated by Cobb's magnificent and enlightening (almost) solo reflections on playing Othello today.
Don't see it if if you have no interest in racial stereotyping and the modern theater.
"'American Moor' breaks free of its creator via its sheer boldness and its honesty about the racial issues that still surface at theater venues in the Obama era. Cobb may well be the first Black American artist, in fact, to look Shakespeare's Moor squarely in his black eyes and then write about the minefield that a black actor must navigate before dramatizing the iconic role on stage.

"I laughed unexpectedly. Felt annoyed at idiot teachers. Was fascinated by your character study of Othello. And saddened that, best I can tell, you speak all of it from infuriating experience. Very well done, indeed."
