Presented in partnership with Centro Primo Levi NY, Compagnia de’ Colombari, Beit Venezia: A Home for Jewish Culture, the Italian Cultural Institute. On the occasion of the 500th Anniversary of the Venice Ghetto. We hosted an exceptional preview reading and discussion of "The Merchant of Venice" which will be performed outdoors in the Campo di Ghetto Nuovo on July 26, 27, 28, 29, and 31. The New York reading of selected scenes by Reg E. Cathey with actors from the prestigious Compagnia de’ Colombari was followed by a conversation with director Karin Coonrod and Shaul Bassi on this unique coproduction that will bring "The Merchant of Venice" for the first time ever to the Ghetto – investigating the play’s poignant exploration of love and hate, avarice and mercy, and of being human.
