Fresh on the heels of performing this one-woman living memoir at Lincoln Center, Debra Ann Byrd brings Becoming Othello: A Black Girl’s Journey, to the Southwest Shakespeare stage. Fearlessly exploring her upbringing in Spanish Harlem and life as a single mother and artist, Byrd weaves her personal struggles and triumphs through her acclaimed, gender-switched performance as the Moor of Venice. Don’t miss this tour-de-force hailed as “astonishing, brilliant, heartbreaking, and ultimately inspiring.” -Mark Nixon, Stratford-upon-Avon.
