MERCHANT OF

SESAME STREET

William’s Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice gets a spectacularly goofy and educational twist! When Ernenzo makes his intentions to marry a human girl known, Bertsanio finds himself in search of a new best friend and roommate. In an effort to help, Elmonio visits the long tormented Osclar the Grouch to make a dangerous deal: a pound of his felt in exchange for 3000 ducks.
