About Restart Stages at Lincoln Center: BECOMING OTHELLO: A Black Girl’s Journey

Presented in collaboration with HARLEM WEEK and the Harlem Arts Alliance By Debra Ann Byrd Directed by Tina Packer

Classically trained actress and playwright Debra Ann Byrd's one-woman "living memoir" and musical play, Becoming Othello, explores her upbringing as a young girl raised in Spanish Harlem and the painstaking process of expressing that sometimes troubled personal history through her acclaimed gender-switched performance as the Moor of Venice. Byrd's life as a single mother and as an artist provide her with the grounding and depth necessary to inhabit Othello, but it is the willing bravery to share her unseen truths that most resonates with her audiences. In this new adaptation of the play, produced by Harlem Arts Alliance in honor of the annual HARLEM WEEK celebration, she mines the Shakespearean tradition to showcase the struggle, triumph and excellence of the uptown Black experience.
