Jeffrey Horowitz, Artistic Director said, "Theatre for a New Audience's cornerstone is Shakespeare. We're thrilled to be presenting two great tragedies each with full casts. Together these productions are employing a total of 29 Actor Equity actors and stage managers. This is the first time we are producing Hamlet and the second time we have produced Othello. Both plays are particularly apt for our times."

Camargo most recently appeared on Broadway in Arthur Miller's 'All My Sons' (George Deever: revival 2008) directed by Simon McBurney and previously in David Hare's 'Skylight' (Edward Sergeant: 1996).
