1 thought on “The Merchant of Venice at the Almeida Theatre”

  1. Awful, awful, awful. The sort of gimmicky nonsense you’d expect from a bunch of drama students who’d graduated five minutes before. How Rupert Goold, who directed such a superb Macbeth a few years ago, could sully his reputation with this I can’t imagine.
