Q Brothers Present Othello: The Remix

Sponsored by Patricia Brennan See

Musicians, actors, writers, educators, and DJ’s, GQ and JQ created and starred in the award-winning, internationally-acclaimed productions, Othello: The Remix and Funk It Up About Nothin’ - both musical, hip hop “add-RAP-tations” of Shakespeare’s classics. Othello: The Remix most recently ran off-Broadway at the Westside Theatre, where it was produced by John Leguizamo, and received rave reviews and the NY Times Critic’s Pick award. Originally commissioned by Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London for the 2012 Globe to Globe Festival, O Remix was produced by Chicago Shakespeare Theater, played the Edinburgh Festival Fringe (MTM: UK Awards, Best Lyrics and Best New Musical), enjoyed a five month run at Chicago Shakespeare Theater (Jeff Award, Best Ensemble), along with a tour abroad.
