More on their website.

Wednesday, July 25, 7 pm, at Boswell:
Nick Weber, author of The Circus That Ran Away with a Jesuit Priest.

Armed with a graduate degree in drama and another in sacred theology, and backed by the California Province of the Society of Jesus, Jesuit priest Nick Weber's Royal Lichenstein Circus crisscrossed the United States for 22 years. Now in Milwaukee as a layperson and leader of a popular Shakespeare program, Weber tells how spiritual seeking merged with three-ring entertainment for two decades.

Yesterday's Cue section in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel focused on wire service reviews, so we don't have any JSonline links, but arts editor Jim Higgins wrote a thoughtful roundup of literary reactions to the tragic shooting at the Aurora movie complex last weekend, including thoughts from Deborah Blum and Dave Cullen.
