"The daring, the dazzle and the pure craft of this company…absolutely exhilarating." -The New York Times

"…one of the finest and most distinctive acting ensembles in the country." -The Daily Telegraph (UK)

"This production is spot-on in every way." -The Guardian (UK)

Edward Hall's superb, all-male company Propeller - last at BAM with The Taming of the Shrew and Twelfth Night (2007 Spring Season) - returns with an incendiary staging of The Merchant of Venice. Known for its vigorous and highly physical style, the award-winning troupe reveals Merchant's underlying absurdities while delivering an unsparing rendition of the harrowing bargain at its core.
