Shylock, Shakespeare, and the Jews: Anti-Semitism in The Merchant of Venice

Barry Edelstein, director, The Public Theater's Shakespeare Initiative, and author, Thinking Shakespeare; Prof. James Shapiro, Columbia University, and author, Shakespeare and the Jews; and Rabbi Steven Weil, Executive Vice President, Orthodox Union

"Hath not a Jew eyes?" These five words, which begin Shylock's most memorable speech in The Merchant of Venice, invariably open up a literary, historical, and social quagmire regarding the nature of this enigmatic character. A distinguished panel debates these controversies in light of The Public Theater's widely celebrated recent production of the play, starring Al Pacino as Shylock.

$10, $7 students/seniors, $5 members of the Museum and The Public Theater

Presented in conjunction with The Public Theater
