A Good Reason For A Trip To London

The well-reviewed Broadway production of The Merchant of Venice, starring Academy Award winner Al Pacino, could possibly cross the Atlantic for a London run, according to the Daily Mail. British producers Duncan C. Weldon and Paul Elliott are reportedly in talks with the Public Theater and the Merchant producing team about bringing the production to the West End. There has also been speculation that The Merchant of Venice will likely extend its Broadway engagement, which is currently scheduled to conclude its limited, 78-performance run Jan. 9, 2011.


  1. The NY Public Theater is a so called Nonprofit Theater. Read how this works and think about a transfer into german highly subsidized theaters of high crop:

  2. The words are unmutilated Shakespeare, there's no blood on stage, the Venetians don't wear SS-uniforms, no one masturbates or shits on stage. In short: This production is unthinkable at German "regie theater".
