“The marvelous Jim Hanna…imbues the character (Iago) with an enervating sense of sociopathic world-weariness that reads both as comic exasperation in his scenes with Roderigo and the whiff of a humanizing conscience in his soliloquies.” Othello review — LA WEEKLY, July 2011

“Hanna and Stafford (are) beyond praise. Hanna conveys a passionate eloquence that perfectly underscores the tragic irony of Dysart’s situation.” L.A. Times – CRITIC’S CHOICE

“Hanna does a masterful job…a gripping and intellectually stimulating experience.” BACKSTAGE – CRITIC’S PICK

“(R)iveting performance by Hanna. Hanna’s Dysart suffers an anguish at least as deep as the boy’s, and this carries the play from clever melodrama into the realm of tragedy.” LA WEEKLY – GO!

“As Dysart, Jim Hanna Disappears into a man’s skin about as completely as you’ll ever see an actor do without prosthetic makeup…This is rich, nuanced work which I’d venture to guess stands up very well indeed against Anthony Hopkins’ performance in the Broadway original.” Stage Scene LA
