The season features “The Merchant of Venice” with Bedford as Shylock, “Romeo and Juliet” directed by Tim Carroll, “Fiddler on the Roof” directed by Donna Feore and “Othello” directed by Chris Abraham.

The season will mark the first with Antoni Cimolino as artistic director and he will direct “The Merchant of Venice” and “Mary Stuart.”
