THE MERCHANT OF VENICE Opens 2/13 at Classic TheatreTHE MERCHANT OF VENICE Opens 2/13 at Classic Theatre
by BWW News Desk - Jan 20, 2015

In this tangled tale of friendship, romance and revenge, a merchant borrows money to help his friend woo a rich heiress. Shylock, a Jewish moneylender, agrees to loan the money with one caveat: the merchant must pay the loan back in full, or else he will be forced to surrender a pound of his own flesh.
