If you are interested in details of productions of Shakespeare’s plays on the London stage from 1 January 1890 through 31 December 1959, check out http://www.jpwearing.wordpress.com. A series of calendars provides what plays were performed, where, and by whom. Bibliographies of reviews, commentaries, and other useful information is also provided.
This may strike some people as news from the weird (remember Lenny Henry in Chef?), but yes indeed Lenny Henry is to perform Othello. Actually, Henry can also be a serious chap, and he’s earned a B.A. in literature from the Open University. For Henry on Othello and other interesting details, read an interview with him by clicking here.
