Debra Ann Byrd’s ‘Becoming Othello: A Black Girl’s Journey’ Draws Praise from ‘Wall Street Journal’

Debra Ann Byrd, a Bundles Scholar at Columbia, drew praise from the Wall Street Journal for her autobiographical one-woman show, “Becoming Othello: A Black Girl’s Journey.” She’ll be performing it at Lincoln Center on August 4!

Byrd’s solo show tells her life story from a troubled childhood to becoming a classically trained actor performing Shakespeare.
