British theatre director Iqbal Khan’s brilliant, original, and successful production of Macbeth just finished playing at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London. This follows a trail-blazing, critically acclaimed Othello at the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) in Stratford-upon-Avon, UK (2015). In 2012, he directed an innovative Much Ado About Nothing, (RSC), preceded by works by Harold Pinter and Arthur Miller, among others, and including some operas. His repertoire of radically original, culturally textured productions has established Khan as an influential figure in British theatre. Recently, he collaborated with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra in “Shakespeare in the Bowl,” which combined Shakespearean scenes with music inspired by the plays.
