You-review-it Monday

November 23, 2008
For me, the weekend meant two evenings at my daughter's school musical--congrats to the whole Pike High School company of 'Children of Eden'.

Sunday meant performances by the Indianapolis Opera and the touring company of "The Lion King." Look for reviews of the latter two in the upcoming IBJ. (No, I won't be reviewing my kid's show.)

Plus, I finished reading "Put on a Happy Face," a memoir by Charles Strouse, composer of "Bye Bye Birdie" and "Annie." As with most autobiographies, I skimmed the formative years stuff and jumped right into the fascinating trying-to-save-shows-before-they-get-to-New-York tales. And who knew that the composer of two of Broadway's biggest hits still worked at an advertising agency even after landing Tony Awards?

So what did you do? See a good movie? (Speaking of potentially good movies, I've still got passes for 'Slumdog Millionaire. Click here.)

Or did you get to the Tonic Ball? Check out the latest installment of 'A Very Phoenix Xmas'? Visit the Stutz holiday show?

Do tell.
