Guy Masterson stars in this one-man play written and directed by Gareth Armstrong.
As one of only two Jewish men in Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice, Shylock has been portrayed in ways which reflected how Jews were popularly viewed—from comic villain in Shakespeare's day, to a victim of racial discrimination today.
Masterson, perhaps the world's leading exponent of the form, honors one of Shakespeare's finest creations from one of his greatest plays in a performance that celebrates the beauty of language, the power of history and the magic of theater.
