'The Merchant of Venice' at Gallery Players in Park Slope

The Gallery Players announces their next 'Shakespeare: Onstage' production: "The Merchant of Venice" from July 18 - August 4. Here's the release:

"The Merchant of Venice," written in 1596-97, is Shakespeare’s great play about religious, economic, racial and cultural differences. Set as an Italian Renaissance fairy tale, Director Mark Harborth shows two worlds in collision – that of Antonio and Shylock, a Jew.

This candid comedy speaks to us across four centuries with humor, passion, disguises, twists and turns.

The cast includes Dominic Cuskern as Shylock (Inherit the Wind, A Perfect Ganesh), Broadway veteran and long-standing member of the Pearl Theatre Resident Acting Company, stars as Shylock. David Patrick Ford (Macbeth, Othello) will play Antonio opposite Cuskern. Gallery President and Director Mark Harborth (Noises Off, Chess, Othello, Dreamgirls) will again direct.

Performances will take place at 7:30 pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, as well as 3:00 pm on Sunday. Tickets are $18 for Adults, $14 for senior citizens and children 12 and under. The Gallery Players will also host a “Pay What You Can” night on Monday, July 22nd at 7:30 pm.

Tickets can be purchased 24/7 online at or by calling OvationTix at 212-352-3101 (phone hours 9-9 weekdays, 10-6 weekends).
