PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

A lost fortune, a lover's choice and one of the most powerful expressions of "the quality of mercy" in literature: meet Portia, Bassanio and Shylock, the Jewish moneylender and one of Shakespeare's most controversial characters of all time. A suspenseful comedy with a tragic core that has intrigued audiences for centuries. Does the expression of mercy come through in the characters' actions? Watch. Listen. Decide.

What a show, I laughed, I cried!

5.0
It is with great admiration that I extend a warm congrats to the performers and direction of a sometimes slow show to attend. This was not slow, or fast or anything but just right. I was surprised to see a community theater regular in the cast. That's what community theater is about, working on your craft, learning and growing. I saw a good show and I would be happy to see it again.

Bill at the Tavern? by Shadrach
Ooh, I didn't realice Bill Mann was in this show. I gotta go see this soon. I always volunteer for every show at the Tavern, and I need to go check this out. I've done a couple things with Bill before, and it's great to see that he's doing work at the Tavern.

very funny by mark
the posted cast has a few errors. which brings me to the conclusion that mediahound doesn't see what he/she reviews.
Bill is not in the show by Okely Dokely
I'm afraid it was too good to be true. According to the cast list that was recently posted by Jeanette on the ATML (which I'd trust over this), that role is not played by Bill Mann, but rather somebody else with the last name of Mann.
The correct Mann by sixbadapes
The proper actor doubling as the Duke of Venice, the Prince of Morocco, and Tubal is Equity actor Barry Stewart Mann.
More cast corrections by sixbadapes
The actor playing Lorenzo is Matt Felton, and how could anyone leave the wonderful Claire Christie off the cast list, as she is playing the major role of Portia.
