As Walt Whitman, re-enactor Bill Koch, adjunct professor of English, performs his multi-media one-man show that explains Whitman's life and times, reciting his poetry. Especially relevant as the country marks the 150th anniversary of the Civil War are Whitman's reflections and poetry on the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln. Open to the public free of charge.
In this comedy, Shakespeare weaves together two ancient folk myths, one involving a vengeful, greedy Jewish creditor trying to exact a pound of flesh from a Christian over an unpaid debt, the other involving a marriage suitor’s choice among three chests to win the hand of his beloved. How does one harmonize the Elizabethan anti-Semitic portrayal of Shylock with the fairy-tale romance of Portia and Bassanio? And then make this experience relevant and comedic to a contemporary audience? Join us as we celebrate the final production in our exploration of politically-themed work.
Under the direction of UNI School of Music professor and conductor John Len Wiles, the UNI Varsity Men's Glee Club will offer a spring concert as part of the Spotlight Series. This event is ticketed. For tickets, call (319) 273-4TIX.
