Asia, LA & Shakespeare Collide: Merchant On Venice
Shishir Kurup's raucous Merchant On Venice, the South Asian re-imagining of Shakespeare's The Merchant Of Venice, returns to Chicago at Greenhouse Theater Center. Set on Los Angeles' Venice Boulevard, the wickedly funny, politically provocative show combines iambic pentameter with Hindu-Muslim tensions, Bollywood musical numbers and the LA punk scene. The show explores empathy and grace, blame and religious bigotry mixed up with the mash of South Asian culture in Los Angeles.
