Long Beach Shakespeare Company Presents The Merchant of Venice

Long Beach Shakespeare

Long Beach Shakespeare Company will present The Merchant of Venice May 27 – June 18 at the Richard Goad Theatre in Long Beach. Full of controversy, racial and religious tension, and featuring two formidable opponents, it is especially resonant in this election year. Neither Shylock nor Antonio are very likable and both have moments of virtue and depravity. The plays is also rich with famous quotes such as “all that glisters is not gold,” and “so shines a good deed in a naughty world.”

As is typical of LBSC’s productions, you’ll also find beautiful costumes, original music, and dancing. Seating is limited and reservations are recommended.

    Hello There, Thank you so much, as usual, for all of your efforts in getting out this wonderful newsletter as often as you do–which lately, has been quite often. Quick question: when I click on the link for the Audition Announcement for A Noise Within — all I get is this AEA link: http://www.actorsequity.org/NewsMedia/newsmediahome.asp Thanks for any clarification on this — and please accept my advance apologies if the solution is obvious and I’m just not seeing it. Most appreciatively, as always, Bob Rodriguez

    Hi Bob,

    I just tried the link and it goes to the AEA home page but if it’s not working for some reason, here it is again http://www.actorsequity.org.

    Just click on the Casting Call link and follow the prompts from there (The internal audition notices only create temporary links so I can’t link directly to the individual notice). Good luck!
