The Kennedy Center is excited to welcome Shakespeare’s Globe on Tour in their production of The Merchant of Venice. Starring Jonathan Pryce (you may know him as the High Sparrow on Game of Thrones), the show is set to run for a very short amount of time – from Wednesday July 27 to Saturday, July 30 at the Eisenhower Theater. Tickets are priced at $69 to $120 for the 2 hours and 45 minute show. If you’re a Kennedy member or would like to become one, you’ll receive special purchasing privileges to this and all other Kennedy Center productions.
The show itself is considered to be one of Shakespeare’s best, with the main character of Shylock being a defining “outsider” in theater history. It tackles issues like tolerance and intolerance, justice and mercy. This is supposed to be a stellar production of the play, and it’s only around for such a short engagement!
