Nick Weber did graduate work in theology and theater after years of teaching English literature and theater arts, becoming ordained as a Jesuit priest. In 1971 he founded The Royal Lichtenstein Circus, a poetry theatrical hybrid, and presented morality tales and circus acts for more than twenty years as his official ministry. Nick developed a one-man performance piece, “Shakespeare, Just for Fun!” as a layman, and that piece renewed his interest in the playwright. He began reading Shakespeare’s works with groups of retirees in Milwaukee after retiring yet again from teaching theater arts and English literature. This latest book celebrates that five-year project, known as Shakespeare Just for Fun! Seniors Sharing Shakespeare.
