What's Shaking?

OthelLit mixes Shakespeare and drinks for one sturdy cocktail

This newest story on tap in our LIT series puts the tragic tale of love, deception, and revenge on nitro for a complex, creamy texture. The lighter signatures of the LIT series blend with the darker notes of the story for a bold and satisfying new flavor with an element of jealousy.

OthelLIT is Sweet Tea Shakespeare’s a hilarious take on Shakespeare’s Othello, as part of our LIT series, an irreverent celebration of the Bard — over drinks. LIT is an intimate and delightful traveling series which brings a new kind of party to a play. LIT performances include direct (and hilarious) audience engagement in games and scenes, improvised text, and other surprises throughout the show. We like to call it an evening of Shakespeare, distilled.

OthelLIT is directed by Marie Lowe; music direction is by Jacob French. The cast includes Taj Allen, Nathan Pearce, Tohry Petty, Traycie Zapata, Jennifer Czechowski, and Gabe Terry.

Advance tickets: $17.50 general admission | $15 military / senior | $10 student
At the door: $25
