New York Times Review of “The London Merchant”

January 18, 2012

The short review: excellent. That’s a simple way to sum up this co-production by the Storm Theater and the Blackfriars Repertory Theater.”

New York Times review is a complete rave, praising Blackfriars’ Theatre, a ministry of the Province of St. Joseph, for producing “first rate theatre. “There are so many surprises in the 2 hours and 10 minutes of “The London Merchant” that you may have to remind yourself that yes, you are in a basement that houses the Theater of the Church of Notre Dame, a space far off the radar of most audiences. That’s not a snobbish statement, but rather an acknowledgment that, in New York, out-of-the-way places can produce some first-rate theater.” For the full review of the play, see the New York Times. The London Merchant” continues through Jan. 28 at the Theater of the Church of Notre Dame, 405 West 114th Street, Morningside Heights; (212) 868-4444,
