For me, the weekend started with a Thursday visit to the new Schrott Center for the Arts on Butler University's campus and continued on Friday with the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra's lively accompaniment to the silent film "Show People," for which I provided the opening remarks (interesting back story there). Saturday included the Phoenix Theatre's annual benefit at the Alexander Hotel, providing an opportunity to help celebrate that essential Indianapolis theater.
On the movie front, I finally watched "Skyfall" and believe I'm the only moviegoer who preferred "Quantum of Solace." And, inspired by the IRT's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and Acting Up's recent "Twelfth Night," I continuing catching up on the wonderful PBS series "Shakespeare Uncovered" and reading Aaron Frankel's lively and instructive recent book, "Shakespeare for American Actors and Directors".
How about you? What did you see, hear or read over your weekend?
