With less than six days left to reach our Kickstarter goal, Shakespeare in Detroit is still hoping to raise the remaining $13,331 left to raise. As many of you may know, Kickstarter is an all or nothing platform, so we raise it all or we get nothing. That means, everyone that has supported us so far will not be charged for their intended support. We're still hoping for the best in these next few days. But, we're exploring other options to make at least one of our shows possible in the next year, "Antony and Cleopatra." Learn more in this episode about how you can be involved beyond our Kickstarter campaign.
Can Justin Verlander come back and help the reeling Detroit Tigers? Is Brad Ausmus doomed to failure as manager? There's a lot to talk about following the Tigers' horrible weekend sweep at the hands of the Angels.
The second half of our show focuses again on the Detroit Red Wings, who appear ready to hire Jeff Blashill as head coach once the Grand Rapids Griffins' season ends. What's the future hold for Blashill and the Wings?

Jason is the Director of Theatre and Lead Teacher for Arts, Media and Entertainment at James Monroe High School in North Hills, a suburb of Los Angeles. With productions that include, Oedipus the King, Wiley and the Hairy Man, Zombie Prom and School House Rock Live! along with on campus festivals that include Comedia Del Arte, Shakespeare and traditional Folkloric dance, his students have been selected by the American High School Theatre Festival as one of only 40 schools from North America to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe in Scotland this August, 2015. While his students are severely economically disadvantaged and labeled "at risk" for a myriad of reasons, they have honed their energies into theatre arts and created for themselves the opportunity of a lifetime in their performance of Romeo y Julieta at this year's Edinburgh Fringe.
Romeo y Julieta is a bi-lingual Romeo and Juliet translated by the students. Using Shakespeare's language and spoken in Original, Elizabethan Pronunciation along with colloquial Spanish, Monroe Theatre tells the story of "star crossed lovers" from rival Hispanic families living in San Fernando, CA.
This is not West Side Story. Romeo y Julieta touches on the, very real, inner-racial tension within the Hispanic community my students deal with daily.

Tonight on NMEMINDZ Radio - Gentrification and it's role in displacing our communities. What happened to our people after Hurricane Katrina, was that gentrification, even if it was a natural disaster? Also, can Brooklyn, Oakland, Detroit and other majority Black cities be gentrified if we don't own anything? If we don't own the residence where we lay our heads? What steps can we take to stop the bleeding and breakdown of Black communities and build strong Black owned infrastructure? The ca/ll in # is 347-633-9644. 8pm EST / 5pm PST. Peace.
The emphasis here should be on "dreamt of", as Hamlet is pointing out how little even the most educated people can explain.
One can imagine happier times when Hamlet and Horatio, studying together at Wittenberg, engaged in heated philosophical debates.
Shakespeare does not expand on the specific nature of Horatio's philosophy, and in the First Folio (1623), the text actually reads "our philosophy."

"The step-by-step process that was used by the press: First they fanned the flame in such a manner to create hysteria in the mind of the public. And then they shift gears and fan the flame in a manner designed to get the sympathy of the public. And once they go from hysteria to sympathy, their next step is to get the public to support them in whatever act they're getting ready to go down with. You're dealing with a cold calculating international machine, that's so criminal in its objectives and motives that it has the seeds of its own destruction, right within. They use the press to emphasize that white hostages are being held by [inaudible]--imagine that--or white priests, white missionaries, white nuns--they don't say nuns: white nuns. You know what the paper said right here in Detroit: white missionaries, not just a missionary; a white nun--as if there's a difference between a white nun and a black nun; or a white priest and a black priest; or if the light that's in a white skin is more valuable than a light within a black skin. This is what they're implying! And the press--look at the press when this thing was going on--and you will see what I'm talking about. They're vicious in their whiteness.
But still, I wouldn't judge them just 'cause they're white, or they'd call me a racist. [I'm] judging by their deeds, by their conscious behavior--and you know how they've been consciously behaving in the Congo, and how they consciously behave in Vietnam, and how they consciously behave right now in Alabama and Mississippi. So you and I got to get conscious, and start behaving in a way that we can offset this thing before it's too late--and this is what they don't want to hear." Malcolm El Haji Shabazz . The idea that Africa is free after liberation is something we must examine throughly. For we must FREE THE LAND IF WE ARE TO BE FREE! FREE THE LAND!!! ONE SETTLER ONE BULLET!
