Don't Miss OTHELLO: THE REMIX!
On April 20th at 7:30pm, Scaffolding Theatre Company and The International District Economic Development Center are bringing theatrical adventure to the Keshet Center for the Arts with "Othello the Remix."
This 80 minute rap adaptation of one of Shakespeare's greatest stories premiered at London's Globe Theatre in 2012 and has since played New York City, Chicago, Scotland, Germany, South Korea, Australia, and more to great acclaim.
Scaffolding's dynamic cast and DJ will rock
Keshet with food and beverages
one hour before the 7:30 showing.
"After an incredible reception in Las Cruces, it's thrilling to reunite these explosively energetic young men for an Albuquerque audience," says Scaffolding Co-Founder and the production's director Megan McQueen. "Each has been known to dazzle audiences with their rap skills before and is showing off his versatility in this project.
It's astounding to watch them work."
Seating is by general admission,
and tickets are available on-line
or in person one hour before each performance.

What's The word?
"... a thing to behold...
I was mesmerized by the talent of its four stars....
The impact of this lyrical, rhythmic, emotional play can't be described well enough to do it justice.
You have to see it."
- Las Cruces Bulletin Publisher Richard Coltharp
Mark Medoff called our 2018 production
"riveting" and "blazing."
"Josh, Julian, Juan and Mark
are attractive and compelling
just standing still, but
'Othello: The Remix'
lets each one show off his skills and versatility
as an actor, singer, dancer and rap artist
with individual and collective
grace, style and energy."
