Baltimore Shakespeare Factory Merchant Of Venice

The Baltimore Shakespeare Factory's production of The Merchant of Venice is only two weeks away -- it runs from 27 March to 25 April.

This is a very unique production, since it will be performed entirely in Original Pronunciation -- the Early Modern English accent which Shakespeare spoke and how the plays originally sounded.

Imagine that -- for the first time in over 400 years, this play will be performed in the accent they were written for.

If you have not already done so, please order your tickets as soon as possible. You can buy them here:

If you can't make it to Baltimore -- there will be a live broadcast of the performance on 28 March -- and there may be an online version which you can see.

So, please check back here for more details, or you can follow the Tumblr page for this production:
