Holla! OTHELLO: THE REMIX is now a New York Times Critics’ Pick. This inventive show, presented by John Leguizamo, opened at the Westside Theatre on November 16 to great acclaim. The New York Times hailed it as “a clever and exuberantly performed mash-up of hip-hop and Shakespeare,” and Time Out New York called it “a rip-roaring one-act rich with dizzying rhymes and slick beats.” AKA worked with partner agencies, Arthouse and Jeffrey Richards Associates, to spread the word about this contemporary spin on the Bard’s classic tale. To highlight the reviews and showcase the dope key art from AKA’s Studio, we paired an online flight with a New York Times package we put together to hype up theatergoing audiences. And for the December tourist season, we put together a 4-week flight on the newly mounted LinkNYC screens.
Congrats to the OTHELLO team on their opening success! For more information, visit OthelloTheRemix.com.
