Othello, Illinois Theatre Center

Park Forest, Ill.
February 16 – March 4, 1990


“UPCOMING: Johnny Lee Davenport will play the title role in ‘Othello,’ opening February 16 at the Illinois Theatre Center in Park Forest. The actor was most impressive when he performed scenes from the play earlier this season in a Barbara Gaines’ production of ‘Shakespeare’s Greatest Hits.’”
