Carlo Rota as Othello: Sunday, June 15th


Mark your calendars and set your PVRs. On Sunday June 15th at 9pm, Carlo Rota plays Othello in this two-hour television adaptation of Shakespeare's play. Directed and co-written by Zaib Shaikh (Amaar).


Carlo Rota playing Othello yesterday on CBC-TV was superb. The quintessential actor, Rota kept me riveted to the screen. Iago, Cassio, Desdemona,Bianca & Roderigo were absolutely fantastic in the supporting roles, but Iago was awesome. George Stroumboulopoulos, you are cool and I love your show. I am 58 and my sons are 25 and 21. How old are you? I think that I will adopt you if no one wants you. Carlo, you could be my younger bro'. BTW, I was a high school Math. teacher with the TDSB for 35 years and I retired on Nov. 1, 2007. Little Mosque on the Prairie is cool! CBC, I am your friend and also a friend of Canadian Broadcasting & Public TV. "la lutte continue" ("the struggle continues") Art
