About This Show

Set as an Italian Renaissance fairy tale, Director Mark Harborth shows two worlds in collision – that of Antonio and of Shylock. Perhaps more than any other of his plays, Shakespeare dramatizes the issues of modern society – issues of race, anti-Semitism, and living on the margins both culturally and economically. This candid comedy speaks to us across four centuries with humor, passion, disguises, twists and turns. It is revived continually because of its relevance to our world which is paradoxically evermore socially, religiously, financially and politically polarized in this electronic age.
