WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Replacing Othello and just added to the fall lineup is Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice--the most oft-requested play by Festival audiences! A provocative, controversial, and mercurial show, rich with paradox, it explores the challenging issues of intolerance, prejudice and materialism, and--as in all of Shakespeare?s plays--the quest for a balanced and harmonious existence. Richard Corley directs.
