Thank you for everyone's unbridled enthusiasm for this event. I am hosting a playreading for "Othello" at my apartment in downtown Minneapolis. This type of activity does not require any previous experience with Shakespeare. I have found this to be a most fun, engaging way to become familiar with the play and to prepare for a production by accomplished players (by the way, our group is going to the "Othello" performance Sat, 7th). We'll start around 7pm and read through act 3 and take a 15 - 30 minute refreshment break. Then, we'll finish the remainder of the play. I will distribute character roles (probably 8 - 10 characters) 24 hours prior to the reading or we can do this at the beginning of the evening. Either way, all that is required for attendance is a copy of the play and a 3 hour time commitment. Who knows, this may unlock the actress or actor within you - you didn't know existed! My address is listed above along with my phone number. I live on LaSalle Ave a block south of I-94. Parking should not be a problem. Please do not let this prevent you from participating. When you arrive at my building you will need to phone me so I can come down and let you in. Unfortunately, I must limit this group to 8 members since there are only so many parts to go around (and my apartment is only so big!). In addition, this meet-up will include 3-4 who not members of the theatre meet-up who have expressed an interest in the festivities. Finally, if you have a preference for a small character role or a larger character role please forward this as well. Anyone interested in bringing goodies (i.e., cheese and crackers, fruit, wine, beer), please feel free but let me know ahead of time.
