Merchant Extends Extra Sales
The Al Pacino-led production of The Merchant of Venice in which he stars as Shylock opposite Lily Rabe's Portia has announced an extension. The show was originally scheduled to close for good on January 9th. Now, the show will begin a three week hiatus after that Sunday matinee in order to allow Pacino to fulfill a prior commitment to a movie he has signed onto and will return to Broadway performances February 1st. At that point, the show will perform for three more weeks, ending its run on February 20th.
