New York City, New York

In conjunction with Theater for a New Audience’s simultaneous productions of Christopher Marlowe’s Jew of Malta and Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice, join us for a conversation with actors, directors, and scholars about what these plays can tell us about our own time’s increasingly apocalyptic sectarian antagonisms. Panelists include the actor F. Murray Abraham (who is playing the lead role in both plays); David Herskovitz, director, The Jew of Malta; James Shapiro, Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University, and Richard McCoy, Professor of English at The Graduate Center, CUNY.
For more information about the plays, please visit: www.tfana.org.

This event is FREE and requires no reservations.
