The Public Theater’s first free Shakespeare in the Park production of the season is set amid war and palace intrigue in the 17th-century Mediterranean. Shakespeare’s classic about a noble Black Venetian general whose marriage is sabotaged by theater’s most infamous villain, Iago, remains urgent and relevant today. Directed by Tony winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson.
