Reviewing holographic memories, Iago muses on her schemes to the beat of an original rock song incorporating some of Shakespeare’s original words into the lyrics. As her song crescendos, Iago is consumed by her jealousy, literally becoming “the green eyed monster” destroying everyone and everything in her path to vengeance.
