Meet the Actors: Ned Eisenberg as Shylock #5 / Tubal


“I’ve waited 17 years to work with Karin again, 25 years to visit Venice again, and 11 years have passed since I first became interested in playing Shylock. Clearly, the time has come for all these desires and events to merge together and I am absolutely delighted with the confluence.”
