On Saturday, Shakespeare fans in England and around the world observed the 400th anniversary of the playwright’s death. And at the California Shakespeare Theater in Orinda, new artistic director Eric Ting is trying to breathe contemporary life into the Bard’s work. An upcoming staging of Othello, for example, reimagines the title character as a modern Muslim man. Ting joins us to celebrate Shakespeare’s enduring legacy and preview the 2016 Cal Shakes season.
