"Merchant of Venice"
The Oregon Shakespeare Festival's production of “Merchant of Venice”, directed by Bill Rauch and starring Anthony Heald as Shylock is a magnificent indictment on the cost of prejudice. Set both in contemporary and Elizabethan times, it rings true to today’s issues while still balancing the comedy and the tragic elements of this fine Shakespeare play.
In this episode, listen as Heald deconstructs his speech as the famed character Shylock in Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. This is a rare window into the actor’s process.
