Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to Be in Appearance Inspired by 'The Merchant of Venice'
The theater-loving justice will appear in a celebration of the Shakespeare play.
— -- Noted theater lover and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will take her turn this summer in an appearance tied to a performance of Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice."
Ginsburg, 83, will serve as a judge in a separate but related “mock trial” featuring the play's main characters, but will not be taking part in the play itself.
The event is part of a commemoration of the 500th anniversary of Venice's Jewish ghetto.
Editor’s Note: This story has been updated to reflect that Justice Ginsburg will not be performing in “The Merchant of Venice.”
