At the Shakespeare Theatre in Washington, D.C. in 1997 Kelly directed Patrick Stewart as Othello, in what has become known as the "photo-negative" Othello: Stewart was surrounded by an otherwise black cast in a city known for its high percentage of African-Americans where racial tensions erupt periodically.
