Don't Miss OTHELLO: THE REMIX!
For three weekends in June, Scaffolding
is bringing theatrical adventure to Las Cruces
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 four-member cast and DJ will rock Lavish Ultra Lounge
(201 E. University Ave., inside the Ramada Hotel)
with food and alcohol for sale
one hour before the 8pm showings.
The 3pm Sunday matinees will not sell food/drink.
“I have been anxious to bring this exhilarating, funny, yet moving production to town since witnessing it in Chicago in 2012,” says Scaffolding Co-Founder and the production’s director Megan McQueen. “The show features four incredibly gifted, explosively energetic young men
who have all been known to dazzle Las Cruces
with their rap skills before.
Each is showing off his versatility in this project. It’s really inspiring to watch them work.”
Tickets are available for purchase
in advance online only, or at the door
one hour before each performance.
Call 575-644-7136 for more information.
