Today, I'm just going to serve as your GPS, guiding you to some interesting arts writing from my blog roll. Happy clicking.

--Recent Indy visitor Tyler Green (of IMOCA/IMCPL/IO's "10 Things I Hate About Contemporary Art") comments on his recent trek though the Indianapolis Mueum of Art. Find it at Modern Art Notes here. announces that the Broadway musical "Young Frankenstein"will be closing in January after about 500 performances. It joins a long list of other Broadway shows shutting down, including "13," "Hairspray," "Spamalot," "Spring Awakening," and "Gypsy." I'm planning a few New York runs soon. Looks like I may be heading off-Broadway. I'll keep you posted.

--Chad M. Bauman, on his Arts Marketing blog here asks the difficult question "Do we have too much art?" He notes: "...the supply and demand conundrum that many communities face can also be solved by eliminating the excess supply. This crisis will create a de facto 'survival of the fittest' culture for arts organizations." So who, here, isn't quite fit enough to survive?

--Over at, a site frequented largely by Indy's community theater world, a lively discussion was sparked when actress Marni Lemons questioned a comment I made about being bugged when playwrights/composers/lyricists aren't given as much bio info as actors in theater programs. Feel free to toss in your opinion on the matter here or there.

That's just for starters. Feel free to click on any of my blog roll links over there on the left for lively arts commentary. And drop a note here if there's a blog that you think I should be including.

Your thoughts?

  1. These liberals are out of control. They want to drive our economy into the ground and double and triple our electric bills. Sierra Club, stay out of Indy!

  2. These activist liberal judges have gotten out of control. Thankfully we have a sensible supreme court that overturns their absurd rulings!

  3. Maybe they shouldn't be throwing money at the IRL or whatever they call it now. Probably should save that money for actual operations.

  4. For you central Indiana folks that don't know what a good pizza is, Aurelio's will take care of that. There are some good pizza places in central Indiana but nothing like this!!!

  5. I am troubled with this whole string of comments as I am not sure anyone pointed out that many of the "high paying" positions have been eliminated identified by asterisks as of fiscal year 2012. That indicates to me that the hospitals are making responsible yet difficult decisions and eliminating heavy paying positions. To make this more problematic, we have created a society of "entitlement" where individuals believe they should receive free services at no cost to them. I have yet to get a house repair done at no cost nor have I taken my car that is out of warranty for repair for free repair expecting the government to pay for it even though it is the second largest investment one makes in their life besides purchasing a home. Yet, we continue to hear verbal and aggressive abuse from the consumer who expects free services and have to reward them as a result of HCAHPS surveys which we have no influence over as it is 3rd party required by CMS. Peel the onion and get to the root of the will find that society has created the problem and our current political landscape and not the people who were fortunate to lead healthcare in the right direction before becoming distorted. As a side note, I had a friend sit in an ED in Canada for nearly two days prior to being evaluated and then finally...3 months later got a CT of the head. You pay for what you get...
