Variety made my heart race today:
Michael Grandage will helm a new production of “Othello” at the Donmar Warehouse, with Chiwetel Ejiofor in the title role alongside Ewan McGregor as Iago and Kelly Reilly as Desdemona. It will play a limited engagement from Nov. 29 to Feb. 23, with a Dec. 4 opening.
My very favorite Shakespeare play with two big favorite actors. I’ve decided that I ADORE Chiwetel Ejiofor even though I can’t pronounce his name. He’s magnetic, in everything I’ve seen him in (Firefly fans will recognize his as the operative in Serenity).
Who wants to send me to London??
