Othello Behind Bars-15

In this Aug. 27, 2013, photo, inmates, from left, Eric McNeil, Kevin Fields, and Julian Campbell, dance in their seats while watching rappers perform a hip hop adaptation of William Shakespeare's Othello, titled "Othello: The Remix" at the Cook County Jail in Chicago. Campbell, 19, said the play offered two lessons: "Be honest. Always think before you do." Fields, also 19, saw the play as a cautionary tale. "You can't affect what other people do but you can affect what you do," he says. The show was an eye-opener in another way: "In hip-hop," he adds, "I finally found out what Shakespeare really is."
