“Shylock knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. That’s his undoing. I chose this play fully aware of the passions which it can arouse. It is not an anti-Semitic play, in the same sense that Richard III is not anti-monarchist, but it is about racism.”

–Director Michael Langham in An American Classic: Shakespeare Theatre Company
