Summary Antonio pledges a pound of his flesh to moneylender Shylock, and ends up in a dramatic court battle for his life when the vengeful Shylock decides to collect.
Age Recommend for 11 +. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
Our Recommendation Al Pacino gives an outstanding performance in the iconic role of Shylock, a moneylender whose hurt and resentment over years of being discriminated against for being a Jew leads him to demand the ultimate sacrifice from one of his debtors. Merchant is one of Shakespeare's more difficult plays for a modern audience because, even though the Bard does humanize Shylock, the fact is that the character is ultimately portrayed as a villain. But Pacino unflinchingly portrays the character in all his complexity and director Daniel Sullivan helps the drama to unfold in a clear and compelling way.
