Famous for the character of Shylock (played by Al Pacino in the 2004 film adaptation) and his "Hath a Jew not eyes?" speech, Shakespeare's controversial comedy The Merchant of Venice comes to Chapman University's Musco Center for the Arts in Orange. When gold is flowing, all is well -- but when a contract between Shylock and Bassanio is broken, simmering racial tensions boil over. Humanity, dignity, revenge, cruelty, religion and greed are all explored in The Merchant of Venice, making it one of Shakespeare's most powerful dramas as well as a brilliant comedy.
