‘Othello’ by Cast PH Tickets Now on Sale

Share this article

Tickets are now available for Othello, CAST PH’s second production for 2024.

Director of Othello and Artistic Director of C.A.S.T., Nelsito Gomez, says, “Ever since we made the announcement of Othello, and who would be cast, we’ve been getting messages from people eagerly awaiting when tickets would go on sale. Well, we hear them. And we are happy to announce that we are going on sale sooner than we planned. We are ready for you!”

Gomez adds, “I’m over the moon by the fact that people are getting excited for Shakespeare. But I think much of the excitement comes from the caliber of artists we’ve assembled. And without being too presumptuous, I think audiences are going to see their favorite theater artists in a new light.”

The play features Tarek El Tayech as Othello, Gab Pangilinan as Desdemona, Maronne Cruz as Emilia, and Reb Atadero as Iago. Rounding out the cast are Davy Narciso as Cassio, Rafael Jimenez as Rodrigo, Dippy Arceo as Bianca, and MC Dela Cruz as the Duke of Venice/Lodovico.

Completing the creative team are D Cortezano for lighting design, Myke Salomon for sound design, Sarah Facuri for production design, and Missy Maramara for intimacy direction.

Othello tells the story of a Moorish general who is manipulated by his envious ensign, Iago, into believing his wife Desdemona is unfaithful, leading to tragic consequences.

Gomez shares, “Our goal is to expose the blood and guts of this play written in 1604. Shakespeare was a contemporary man and wrote for his modern audiences. And the reason why his plays have never gone out of fashion is because his themes are so human and universal; they speak to any time period and to any society. So it would be a disservice on my part not to attack this play from a modern perspective.”

Othello will run for eight performances only, from October 4 to 13, at The Mirror Studios, 5th floor, SJG building, 8463 Kalayaan Ave, Makati, 1209 Metro Manila.

OCTOBER 4 – 7:30 PM
