The quality of mercy, Shakespeare tells us, is not strained -- and neither is praise for David Serero's groundbreaking production of The Merchant of Venice. Audiences and critics went crazy for Serero's "nice-guy Sephardi Shylock" in this modern-language version of Shakespeare's masterpiece enlivened with Ladino songs of the era. Now, after a blockbuster run this summer, The Merchant of Venice is back for an extremely limited series of shows. A thrilling exploration of dignity, revenge, cruelty, religion and greed, this powerful drama showcases the tenacity of young love ... even as it calls into question prejudices that continue to vex society today. Experience it live at The Center for Jewish History.
