Intimate, intricate

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

Grove Studios Update

Local musician Rick Coughlin founded Grove Studios in late 2016 with the goal of establishing it as a community space for musicians—by musicians! The Grove team’s idea, with an architectural vision of Breck Crandell, was for a compound of individual artists’ rehearsal spaces comprised of a fleet of shipping containers.
