Whoo-Ah! Pacino Gets Shakespearean!

| Filed under: Broadway Babies


This should be excellent!

It was just announced that headlining Shakespeare in the Park this summer in New York City will be Al Pacino. Big Al will be playing Shylock in The Merchant of Venice, alongside Jesse L. Martin and Lily Rabe, to name a few.

The other show of the season will be The Winter's Tale, which will alternate performance dates with Merchant.

We think this will be very good.

How about U?

    My friend recommended me a very interesting place _____Meet Wealthy com_____*** It's where wealthy singles looking for someone to enjoy their wealthy lifestyle with.

    It will be very good if he gets to carry a semi-auto.

    It's not this is the first time he's played Shylock… hello, they did a movie?

  4. 4

    Of course he will be good.

    1) He's on the best actors of all time.
    2) He's already played Shylock in the critically acclaimed 2005 movie.

    However, one could not assume you would know this you illiterate fool.

    He's already done Shylock, you illiterate fool.
    I bet you have never even heard of it.

    Al Pacino could read the telephone book on a street corner and it would be off the hook.

    This is like the third major mistake on this site in as many days… Pacino DID Merchant and attempted to mount a major production of Richard III… I need to stop coming to this site…

    I will echo others in pointing out you are kind of a dope for not knowing he has already played Shylock in the Merchant of Venice film.

    As if Perez Hilton knows anything about Shakespeare.

    Shakespeare in the Park doesn't play in rotating rep. One show opens, plays its run, then closes. Then the second show opens. Do a little research, why don't ya?
