ARLEKIN & MART Foundation in association with Jadow Productions present The Merchant of Venice. The most excellent historie of the Merchant of Venice
with the exxtreame cruelitie of Shlocke the Jewe

This highly entertaining adaptation of Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice, directed by Ukrainian-born, Jewish theater artist Igor Golyak, is a wild ride that takes a startling and tragic turn, leaving the audience stunned and unable to stop the inevitable and unbearable consequences. Starring Richard Topol as Shylock with a stellar ensemble cast, this is Shakespeare for our time — a full force experience, urgent, deeply human, and full of questions.

The Merchant of Venice is one of two productions presented by MART Foundation as part of ARLEKIN in Residence at Classic Stage Company.
