For me, the weekend meant my annual jaunt down to Louisville to soak in the Humana Festival of New American Plays (Highlight: Will Eno's Gnit, which I'll be telling you more about in hopes that you can get down to see it in its final weekend.)
This year, though, the Humana Fest was a bit different. At least, for me. That's because I had the honor of being part of a USC Annenberg-sponsored squad of arts journalists from around the country creating a pop-up website designed to explore different ways of covering theater in general and this festival in participular. Check it out at www.engine31.org but know that what you see will continue to evolve as another tribe of journalists embed themselves in Kentucky next weekend.
Oh, and on the way down to Kentucky, I introduced an out-of-town guest to the wonders of Columbus, Indiana, architecture as well as the pleasures of Zaharakos' ice cream sundaes. That's what a good host does, right?
Being in Louisville meant not being in Indy, which meant missing what happened here on the A&E front. So fill me in. What did you see, hear or otherwise experience in the arts over the weekend?
