MERCHANT OF VENICE, CA (TEAL Cast)
Both bold and entertaining, Lumina transports Shakespeare's MERCHANT from Elizabethan Venice, Italy to Venice, California! Amidst the drama of 1950's Hollywood, Shylock, the quintessential anti-hero, is a major movie producer and Antonio, the MerchantÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ a filmmaker. Lumina delves into prejudice, paranoia and propaganda as it explores an industry and artists under siege during the McCarthy era trials.
True to the magic of the silver screen, there are show-stopping song and dance numbers choreographed by the highly acclaimed Baakari Wilder; live music provided by The Blackjacks with a horn section from Blair High School. Hit songs from 50's singers Peggy Lee, Bobby Vee, Johnny Mathis and other favorites will fill the air.
LuminaÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂs MERCHANT is a blockbuster play that rates as a "must see!"
