The Merchant of VeniceReturn

Playwright William Shakespeare Producer City Lights Theater Company  [Website] Description More than four centuries after it was first performed, Merchant remains one of the Bard’s most compelling, ambivalent and controversial plays. Poised somewhere between drama and comedy, it balances precariously on the edge where the light and dark of humanity meet, and reflects the emotional turmoil of Shakespeare’s time, aspects of which eerily suggest the troubles that roil America today. With some of the most famous speeches and scenes in the Shakespearean canon, the work still challenges and fascinates audiences. Running Time 2:15 Performers Jeffrey Bracco   [Antonio]
