Daniel Craig & David Oyelowo Will Do 'Othello' Off-Broadway!

Daniel Craig and David Oyelowo are set to team up together for a new Off-Broadway production of the classic Shakespeare play Othello.

The play will be produced at the New York Theatre Workshop and more casting will be announced at a later date.

“This production is an opportunity for New York Theatre Workshop to do what it aspires to do – to foster the growth and accomplishment of the artists we believe in,” artistic director James C. Nicola said in a statement (via Deadline). “When Sam Gold, a longstanding member of our NYTW Usual Suspects community, came to us with the beginning sketches of this production, with these two sublime actors, it seemed the perfect next step for us to take together. I’m eager to see what these original, creative artists come up with in response to Shakespeare’s enduring tragedy.”

Daniel has starred on Broadway in the plays Betrayal and A Steady Rain in recent years while David is a veteran to the stage in England.
