Last night's performance of "Othello" was good, particularly the fellow who played Iago. He gave the impression of relishing his evil, in a straight forward way. A woman sitting near us, with whom I chatted in the line for the women's restroom, observed that Katherine Hepburn described his style as "plain as a baked potato", no oily gimmickry, kind of feller people trust, yet rotten at the core. Having just seen this play last year at the OSF, I wasn't sure how I would like it, but it was well worth the time. We also had pleasant company, so the evening was fine. A bonus were the couple of dozen rain drops that fell on us as we waited by the fountain to go into the theater. Last we'll see for a while...
