A2CT-Studio-Series-3

Bigger is not always better. The Ann Arbor Civic Theater is bringing not one, but two productions to its more intimate Studio Theater. The first will be Shakespeare's King Lear. One of the immortal bard's four great tragedies (Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, and Hamlet being the other three), the play tells the story of a king who tries to divide his kingdom between his three daughters, and goes mad in the process. The second production will be a series of sonnets—the most romantic form of poetry, they always end in a couplet. Adorable.

King Lear will run Friday, October 18 and Saturday, October 19 at 8pm, and Sunday, October 20 at 2pm. Sonnets Onstage will run Friday, October 25 through Sunday, October 27. Friday 8pm, Saturday 2pm and 8pm, Sunday 2pm. $12. Ann Arbor Civic Theater, Studio Theater, 322 W. Ann St. 734-971-0605. a2ct.org

A Physician’s Perspective on Legalized Cannabis

On Tuesday, November 6th, Michigan became the 10th state to legalize cannabis for recreational use. Ten years ago, we had become the 13th state to legalize Cannabis for medical use. I voted for the medical cannabis law years ago because, in my view, cannabis is not a dangerous product, and too many people were being imprisoned for its use. At that time, however, I did not subscribe to the argument that there were legitimate medical uses for cannabis. How things have changed.

Tiny Expo at Ann Arbor District Library—A Curated Holiday Gift Fair with Flair

The Tiny Expo is a gem of an indie arts and crafts fair for vendors with original and unexpected products that make wonderful gifts but may not be an obvious fit for Ann Arbor’s mainstream art fairs.
