I have spent the past two years -- off and on -- teaching Shakespeare to adjudicated youth here in the city of Detroit. I don't talk much about it, so I thought I would share a little bit about what has been an incredible experience.
My students are amazing! We just finished our latest semester last weekend. This semester was different than previous semesters as my life has become more intentional in the past 18 months. I know my purpose. I always knew I wanted to share my art, but I didn't know exactly what that art looked like. I have been a writer. I have been an actor. I have been a comedian. Finding Shakespeare in Detroit has changed every aspect of my life. And, so, this semester it was very important for me to know and feel that I was making a real impact as a teacher. Sometimes, evidence of your success doesn't come in the form of some loud, elaborate declaration. There are times, when figuring out if you are doing the right thing or not can be as quiet and subtle as a fist bump.
I hope you'll check out the latest episode of Detroit Meets the Bard!

Arthur May is a prodigious singer, songwriter, fontman and entertainer. He has recorded, written and toured from Spain to New York, Montreal, Paris and London. His first recordings happened as a result of a television show in Paris where he was debuted to the public. Arthur's bands include Arthur's Dilemma and his fist spot as guitarist was with a Hippy outfit that Arhur recalls was wonderful fun Starry-Eyed and Laughing. In London his buds were Al Stewart, Jasper Carrot. In 1977, Arthur and his band Arthur's Dilemma took Montreal by storm and arrived in New York to play Max's Kansas City every week for 4 months. This necessitated 5 changes of clothes for each show as they were either wet from performing or torn off by vagabond lovers all a part of that great event called New York in the 1970s. The houses they played were packed with the fashionisti and the Glitterati John and Yoko, Andy Warhol, David Hockney and every one ih the New Wave came to see this band. Arthur's status with work visas was precarious and so he returned to England and the further adventures.......will be revealed in the second part of Arthur's musical profile on the Radio show.
