Soul Sisters Empowering Each Other


This past weekend I had brunch at Fiorello's with Joya Dass then off to Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice @The Rose Theater. Jonathan Pryce as Shylock was amazing! It was amazing catching up with a wonderful Soul Sister! Wishing her a great vacation. See her comments below on The Merchant of Venice!

Intense afternoon of the Shakespearean play “Merchant of Venice” at Lincoln Center with @ardengreenspan
The Merchant of Venice is a play by William Shakespeare in which a merchant in 16th-century Venice must default on a large loan provided by a moneylender. It is believed to have been written between 1596 and 1599. Though classified as a comedy in the First Folio and sharing certain aspects with Shakespeare’s other romantic comedies, the play is perhaps most remembered for its dramatic scenes, and is best known for Shylock and the famous “Hath not a Jew eyes?” speech. Also notable is Portia’s speech about “the quality of mercy”.
