The Public Theater production of The Merchant of Venice, starring Academy Award-winning actor Al Pacino as Shylock, began Broadway previews Oct. 19 at the Broadhurst Theatre. Although the opening is being celebrated Nov. 7, critics are being invited after that date due to the recent absences of star Lily Rabe, who plays Portia. Rabe has been dealing with a family matter.

Staged by Tony Award-winner Daniel Sullivan, the cast also features Jesse L. Martin, Byron Jennings, Heather Lind , Gerry Bamman, Matthew Rauch, Richard Topol, Christopher Fitzgerald, Marsha Stephanie Blake, David Harbour, Peter Francis James, Isaiah Johnson, Charles Kimbroug, Seth Numrich, Happy Anderson, Liza J. Bennett, Bryce Gill, Jade Hawk, Bethany Heinrich, Tia James, Kelsey Kurz, Brian Macdonald and Dorien Makhloghi. The Broadway run also includes new ensemble members Glenn Fleshler, Luke Forbes, Herb Foster, Thomas M. Hammond, Curt Hostetter, Dorien Makhloghi, Kim Martin-Cotten and Baylen Thomas in addition to Pacino.
