This April, we invite you to join us as The Baron's Men present William Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice at Richard Garriott's Curtain Theater, the only Elizabethan style theater in Austin. In this period-themed production, we embrace and explore the dark and light of the Bard's well-known tragicomedy, noted as much for its challenging and controversial themes as its entertaining plot and captivating, memorable characters.
