Othello Behind Bars-9

In this Aug. 27, 2013, photo, inmates watch as rappers perform a hip hop adaptation of William Shakespeare's Othello, titled "Othello: The Remix" at the Cook County Jail in Chicago. The Q Brothers and Chicago Shakespeare Theater brought the the 70-minute adaptation of William Shakespeare's tragedy to perform for about 450 inmates. This Othello remix is the brainchild of two Chicago brothers and rappers - GQ and JQ, aka Gregory and Jefrrey Qaiyum - who wrote and directed the show, a 40-draft, eight-month project. (AP Photo/M.
