'The Moneylender's Daughter'

Broadway actor Robert Dorfman is knotting a bow, albeit a painful one, with his latest show. When he played Shylock in "The Merchant of Venice" at the Guthrie Theater in 2007, the audience sometimes applauded at inappropriate moments, suggesting it agreed with the anti-Semitic tropes in Shakespeare's classic. Now he's playing Shylock again, but this time in the Martin Coren premiere. The play takes up where Shakespeare left off and deals with many of the themes that continue to resonate, and plague us, today. (March 2-17: 1 p.m. Tue. & Sun., 7:30 p.m. Wed.-Thu., 8 p.m. Sat. Highland Park Community Center, 1978 Ford Pkwy., St Paul. $25-$40. 651-647-4315,
