DAVID SERERO stars in THE MERCHANT OF VENICE, NABUCCO, and OTHELLO at the Center for Jewish History, New York, in 2016

New York, United States- Three Sephardic-themed productions -- two Shakespeare classics and a Verdi opera -- will be presented in 2016 Off-Broadway in the theater located at the Center for Jewish History (15 W. 16 St.) in New York City, starting with MERCHANT OF VENICE last January, followed by NABUCCO April 6-17 and OTHELLO June 16-30.

This trio of productions follows last year's debut of MERCHANT OF VENICE - which uniquely includes Sephardic Ladino songs incorporated into Shakespeare's text - at the Center, marking the first time the museum and their performance space, located in Chelsea, a theater production presented by the AMERICAN SEPHARDI FEDERATION.

This recent Shakespeare's MERCHANT OF VENICE production received critical acclaim from both audiences and critics:

Serero is the real stage-taker. He inhabits Shylock with a genuine Jewish sensibility and delivers the famous speech "Hath not a Jew eyes?" sincerely. However, Serero's Shylock never topples over into caricature. Serero deserves kudos for this fresh interpretation. CURTAIN UP, USA
