Jon Barker, Cassio, Othello, The Shakespeare Theatre of NJ

"The cast includes Jon Barker as Cassio, whose portrait of a man, loyal literally to the death, to his general,

is laced with humor and something that is refreshing, after the roiling darkness of Iago. In Barker’s hands,

Cassio is that truly good man--not perfect, but the right man for any of Othello's situations

and he's clearly on his way up."

Sherri Rase,

"Jon Barker as Michael Cassio... is the picture of boyish innocence." 

Talkin' Broadway, Bob Rendell

"There is plenty to relish as well in the performance(s) of... 

Jon Barker as the duped, wine-women-and-song loving Cassio."

CurtainUp, Simon Saltzman

"Not to be overlooked are the fine performances of... Jon Barker as Othello's Lieutenant Michael Cassio..."

Rick Busciglio,

"Monte also gets fine performances from... Jon Barker as Cassio..." Bruce Chadwick, History News Network
