‘The Merchant of Venice’ at Greenbelt Arts Center

MerchantGREENBELT – The Rude Mechanicals troupe makes the bold choice of performing “The Merchant of Venice” at the Greenbelt Arts Center (through June 30). “The Merchant of Venice” is regarded as one of Shakespeare’s problematic plays, though these are among Shakespeare’s most interesting. Using a mostly female cast, this production embraces a spirit of experimentation. While not always entirely successful, the boldness of interpretation is interesting and at times even riveting.
