The Merchant of Venice

3hr. (1 intermission)


Tony, Emmy, Golden Globe and Academy Award winner Al Pacino and Tony Award winning director Daniel Sullivan reunite to bring the Public Theater's critically acclaimed production of William Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice to Broadway following a sold-out run in Central Park. Pacino and Sullivan expertly tackle one of Shakespeare's most controversial plays, offering modern audiences a new, shattering take on this rarely performed play. A limited number of tickets in the mezzanine will be sold via lottery. Entries will be accepted at The Broadhurst Theatre beginning one and a half hours prior to each performance. Thirty minutes later, names will be drawn at random for seats in the mezzanine. Only one entry is allowed per person. Cards are checked for duplication prior to drawing. Winners must be present at the time of the drawing and show a valid photo ID to purchase tickets. Limit one entry per person and two tickets per winner. Subject to availability. The price of lottery tickets is $31.50, including the facilities fee.
