BWW Reviews: THE MERCHANT OF VENICE at Stratford Festival Should Not be Missed!
by Lauren Gienow - Sep 9, 2013

THE MERCHANT OF VENICE-arguably William Shakespeare's most controversial play, is being tackled this season at the Stratford Festival for the first time since 2007. Under the direction of (Artistic Director) ANTONI CIMOLINO, this production does not shy away from the controversial nature of many characters' anti-Semitic views, and in fact, highlights the danger of such views by placing this production in a timeline leading up to the Holocaust. The constant reminder of what is to come provides a dark and almost eerie backdrop to this production, creating a thought-provoking dark 'comedy' for the ages. (more...)

MERCHANT OF VENICE Set for the Lost Theatre, Nov 11-16
by BWW News Desk - Oct 25, 2013

The Merchant of Venice is perhaps most famous for its portrayal of anti-Semitism, through the character of Shylock. However, often overlooked is the theme of social class. This runs throughout the play; from the way Shylock is treated as a Jew, to Portia the rich heiress who is almost enslaved by her money, and Antonio the 'good man' bailed out by the court system with barely concealed bias.
