Stewart strikes deal with ‘Merchant’

Royal Shakespeare Co. prod'n runs from May 13

Patrick Stewart will return to the Royal Shakespeare Company to play Shylock in “The Merchant of Venice” from May 13-Sept. 26, with a May 19 opening.

Casting for the production, helmed by Rupert Goold (“Enron”), springs from a stalled Las Vegas-set film adaptation that Stewart was to star in and produce from a screenplay by John Logan (“The Aviator,” “Hugo Cabret,” “Red”).

Stewart previously starred in Goold’s RSC production of “The Tempest” and his “Macbeth” at Chichester’s Festival Theater, which transferred to Gotham.
