ANN ARBOR - As we enter into the final weekend of Shakespeare in the Arb, one of Ann Arbor's most beloved summer traditions, here's a look back at this year's performances.

It is the first tragedy the group consisting of University of Michigan students and community players are performing at the annual spectacle.

Set entirely in nature, directors Kate Mendeloff of U of M's residential college, Graham Atkin and Carol Gray had to get creative with staging, especially the famous balcony scene.
