- Performance Series: Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice. 7:30 p.m., Oct. 24-26, Nichols Hall. Shakespeare's provocative comedy starts with Bassanio's quest for Portia. Funded by an ill-conceived loan drawn against Antonio's expected fortunes, the road to true love will not be smooth. When plans go awry, betrayal and blind anger face off against a cry for compassion and a clever young lawyer in disguise. In the end, on a moonlit night in Belmont, all are left to question justice, the power of love and how far people go just to belong. Presented by Actors from The London Stage, one of the oldest established touring Shakespeare theater companies in the world. Ticket information or call 532-6428.

From the moving traditional hymn "Wade in the Water" to Joni Mitchell's "All I Want," to settings of Coltrane's "A Love Supreme" and words of Hafiz and Rumi, "Poets & Prayers" celebrates the muse in all its forms. Ticket information or call 532-6428.
