Too Good To Be True

The Merchant of Venice is not my favorite of Shakespeare plays. I don't always enjoy it (save for Shylock who has some great lines). This production however is an exception. Set in Germany during the cabaret era it is both disturbing, delightfl and dramaticly wonderful. It captures the essance of Berlin in the late nineteen thirties (and trust me I know what I am talking about! I have directed Cabaret three times and played the Emcee six. I have also written books on Kurt Weille and The Cabaret Era). The highlight of the production is Henry Goodman as Shylock. The man is stunning. He delivers a wonderfully complex and dark performance. If you can watch this Merchant Of Venice. It is really good.
