"With his wild shock of hair, perfect body and uncomfortably bright glint in his eye, Canadian-born Bangoura creates a very romantic but dangerous Othello. For all his unquestionable integrity and ability to lead an army, you'd still be scared stiff to say no to this guy even on a good day. And Bangoura not only has a deep, rich, lyrical voice that's perfectly suited to Shakespeare's timbre but a facile grasp of the text."- Liz Kimberlin
