Heidi Rodewald Joins Stew to Create Music for Shakespeare on the Sound's Othello

Shakespeare on the Sound, presenting free Shakespeare in the park, announced that Obie award-winning composer Heidi Rodewald will join forces with her writing partner Stew to compose the original music and songs that will be a part of the company’s upcoming production of Othello, under the direction of Joanna Settle.

Rodewald and Stew are perhaps best known for co-writing the musical Passing Strange, for which Stew won the Tony for Best Book of a Musical and which was nominated for seven Tony Awards and won the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Musical and the 2008 Obie Award for Best New American Theater Piece. Currently in its 15th Season, Shakespeare on the Sound will present Settle’s all-new production at two locations on Long Island Sound. The show will play Pinkney Park, Rowayton June 15 – 26, and Baldwin Park, Greenwich July 2 – 11.

Audiences are invited to arrive early and picnic in the park before the performance. There is no admission fee, but a donation of $20 ($10 for students and seniors) is suggested. In Rowayton, parking is limited and early arrival is suggested. In Greenwich, the production is a five minute walk from the Greenwich Metro-North stop. Ample parking is available.
