I don't understand why some the actors, who are usually very good, are sooooo hammy when doing Shakespeare. I am now listening to "Green-Eyed Monster" (an adaptation of Othello).

Ann

Othello is a high ranking officer in the Italian military. He is also black. He falls in love with and marries a white woman of means. This causes plenty of problems for everyone involved and Othello becomes the victim of underhanded actions. Another good presentation of Shakespeare on CBSRMT.

Adaptation of "Othello"

Dominic O.

I think I may have been distracted as I couldn't keep track of who was who near the beginning. Not a bad adaptation from what I remember from years ago when I read it, but perhaps a little "hammy" as Ann mentioned.
