Enthralling, Outstanding acting, Great staging

See it if This production of the classic limns man's jealousy, venality and utter fallibility, offers terrific acting and staging as well as the...

Don't see it if ...ability to make the veteran language easy to hear and process -it's never archaic, rather thrilling as it serves up our weaknesses. Bravo

Ambitious, Edgy, Epic, Great acting, Riveting

See it if you want to see Daniel Craig's masterful performance and a great David Oyellowo take on Sam Gold's fascinating and incredibly staged Shakes

Don't see it if you want to see Shakespeare in a traditional manner. You don't want to see frightening parallels w/ Othello and current politics.

Jaw-dropping acting, direction, story, character depth and insight...and relevance

See it if You want to see first-hand how a "classic" can deliver greatness, depth and insight on a modern platform

Don't see it if you aren't ready to settle in for a 3.5-hour examination of human nature and its consequential tragedy. Or if you're a superficial patriot.

Absorbing, Entertaining, Exquisite, Riveting, Intense

See it if you like Shakespeare and tales of tragedy and woe.

Don't see it if you don't like Shakespeare. But it's one of his best pieces ever made, and I've never seen a bad production.

Great acting, Great staging, Masterful, Bard at his best, Intense

See it if I tried to go again, because I don't expect another Othello of this caliber. Creative and devastating...all bard-lovers should not miss.

Don't see it if You can't sit on a cushioned bench for a long time, or if you're not into Shkspre, who is truly not for all...but this is as good as it gets
