Preview: Shakespeare is Coming to Town

First of all I would like to say “Hello!” to everyone. My name is Danny Fob and I’m a new writer with [art]seen! I’m a freshman in LSA majoring in Italian and minoring in Art History. I’m trying to be as involved as possible here at the UofM, so I’m doing everything I can to stay busy with extra-curriculars. So far I’ve joined the Ballroom Dancing Team, LGBTQ Commission, attended two amazing poetry slams, watched movies under the stars, and seen countless performances of our amazing acapella groups on campus. I want everyone’s freshman year to be as interesting as mine, so I’ll try to suggest as many exiting events as I can. Always remember to check the Arts website ( for event calendars and information. Never stay in your residence hall on a Friday night!

For my first event, I will be attending an international performance of Shakespeare’s comedy “Love’s Labour’s Lost.” Shakespeare’s Globe Theater of London is touring in the United States until December, so don’t miss it. This week they are performing at the Power Center and I will be there. Would you like to join me? If yes, here are some more details, or you can just visit the Globe’s website at

When: Tuesday, October 20, 8 pm
Thursday, October 22, 8 pm
Friday, October 23, 8 pm
Saturday, October 24, 8 pm
Sunday, October 25, 2 pm
Where: UofM Power Center for the Performing Arts
What: Shakespeare’s “Love’s Labour’s Lost”
Why: Becuase it’s amazing!

If you’ve never heard of or seen the play, that’s OK. Don’t worry about it. You’ll see that it’s actually a very funny and lively story full of strange and comedic characters. The play is about the King of Navarre and his courtiers. The four men have sworn of all pleasures and dedicated themselves completely to their studies, but these oaths are soon regretted when the Princess of France and her entourage arrive to mix things up! It’s sure to be a fantastic performance, and it had better be if they came all the way from London!

I'm a Junior in LSA majoring in Italian and minoring in Art History. I love writing for art[seen] because it gives me the opportunity to show all of these amazing shows that the University brings to Ann Arbor. We get some world class performers and I would be really bummed if I missed out on anything that I'll never have to opportunity to see again. What you need to know about me? I'm not a writer, an art expert, and I didn't grow up around this much culture. I am a busy student at UofM, so if you are judging me for something, it's okay because I won't have time to respond. I'll just keep seeing shows and you can be jealous!
