Penrod Art Fair

September 8, 2010

Sept. 11
Indianapolis Museum of Art

It is entirely possible—although not recommended—to experience the Penrod Art Fair without actually visiting the artists’ booths. That’s because there will be live entertainment on six stages, including appearances by Dance Kaleidoscope, the Tad Robinson Band, the Indianapolis Children’s Choir, the Indianapolis Men’s and Women’s Choruses, Stacie Sandoval and her Tropical Jazztet, Cynthia Lane, Steve Allee & Friends, and New Shining Star offering an Earth Wind and Fire tribute.

Oh, and make sure to stop by the IBJ booth to say hello. I’ll be the guy handing out copies of IBJ’s Arts & Entertainment Season Preview (while supplies last, of course). Details here.

Penrod Art Fair

September 8, 2010

Sept. 11
Murat Theatre

This time last year, I had no idea what to expect from the Indianapolis City Ballet’s first gala performance featuring stars from ballet companies from around the world.

A year later, having experienced last year’s magnificent talent showcase, I do have an idea what to expect—and I can’t wait for the sequel. The lineup this time includes dancers from the American Ballet Theatre, Boston Ballet, Berlin Ballet and more, with a return appearance by Miquel Quinones, who will once again offer David Parsons’ “Caught” (which still gives me chills just thinking about it). Details here.

Cabaret Fest

September 8, 2010

Sept. 10-17
Cabaret at the Columbia Club

A visitor to town this week might think the Columbia Club on Monument Circle is the town’s busiest music showcase. On Friday and Saturday, a trio of Broadway and cabaret stars will present their “Three Men and a Baby … Grand” tribute to the Rat Pack. They’ll be followed by three nights of music showcases Sept. 13-15 featuring the likes of four-time Tony Award nominee Gregg Edelman and Broadway “Mamma Mia” star Karen Mason.

That’s not all. On the 14th, you can also see Karen Kohler’s interactive “History of Cabaret” show (which includes a dessert reception), catch hot jazz artist Jane Monheit on the 16th, and keep things going to the 17th for an evening of European cabaret and American pop with Kohler.

Why the musical convergence? Many of the acts are in town for the Midwest Arts Conference. Details on the open-to-the-public shows here.

Marian University in Indianapolis has named the founding dean of an Atlanta-area medical school to head up the school for osteopathic doctors it plans to open in 2012. Paul Evans has been dean and chief academic officer for six years of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Suwanee, Ga. In his new position, he will lead efforts by the private Catholic university to establish Indiana's second medical school. Marian officials announced in January plans for the new school that they say could enroll 150 students in the first class. Construction hasn't started on the school. Osteopathic doctors have similar training to traditional physicians, but also are trained in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal problems.

The Roudebush Veterans Affairs Medical Center and the Indiana Health Information Exchange will now work to make their systems talk to each other in a pilot project spearheaded by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The department will invite veterans who receive medical care both at Roudebush and at private health care providers around central Indiana to sign up for the pilot. Records for patients who participate could be swapped from the VA providers to the private doctors and hospitals as needed. The Indiana Health Information Exchange provides access to the records of more than 6 million patients through its partnerships with 60 hospitals and the Indianapolis-based Regenstrief Institute Inc., which maintains decades of Indianapolis patient records in a database. The VA hospital in Indianapolis will communicate with the Indiana Health Information Exchange using a new “gateway” set up by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Called the Nationwide Health Information Network, it provides the technical and legal framework to allow patient information to be swapped electronically and securely.

A new report shows Indiana hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers recorded 94 preventable medical errors in 2009, a drop from the 105 mistakes reported in 2008 and 2007, according to the Associated Press. The most common error last year was a foreign object such as a sponge left in a patient after surgery. Indiana's 306 facilities reported that error 29 times. The report released Monday by the Indiana State Department of Health counted 17 instances of surgery performed on the wrong body part. Pressure ulcers, also known as severe bedsores, occurred 22 times—down from 33 the previous year.

WellPoint Inc. finally got its rate hike—five months after the storm. The Indianapolis-based health insurer won approval last week from regulators in California to raise rates on individual policyholders in the state by an average of 14 percent, according to the Associated Press. WellPoint had withdrawn a request for rate hikes averaging 25 percent—and ranging as high as 39 percent—after President Obama spotlighted them and public outrage ensued. The brouhaha has been credited with helping Obama push a stalled health reform law through Congress. An outside actuary hired by California regulators later found math errors in WellPoint’s calculations, which led to WellPoint withdrawing and then requesting the smaller increase.

Actors Theatre of Indiana’s "Rounding Third"

September 1, 2010

Sept. 3-26
Carmel Community Playhouse at Clay Terrace

Youth sports have a long history of bringing together parents who might otherwise never meet. That’s the foundational idea in Richard Dresser’s play, in which a tough-as-nails, blue collar coach finds himself at philosophical odds with his new assistant, a businessman with a let-the-kids-have-fun attitude. If it sounds like “The Odd Couple” on a baseball diamond, well, what would be so wrong with that?

The production comes courtesy of Actors Theatre of Indiana, the professional company set to move into the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel next season. For now, it’s using the Clay Terrace digs of the Carmel Community Players. Details here.

Roche Diagnostics agreed to pay $100 million to acquire California-based BioImagene Inc., a maker of tissue-based cancer diagnostic equipment, according to Reuters. Such diagnostic tools are becoming increasingly important to identify the small groups of patients who are the targets of new cancer drugs aimed at specific genetic profiles. Switzerland-based Roche also has a pharmaceutical business and is the world’s largest maker of cancer drugs. The company’s U.S. diagnostic business is headquartered in Indianapolis, though its tissue diagnostics is concentrated in Arizona.

Drug developer Endocyte Inc. has raised more than $100 million in private investment and grant funding, so it’s now going to test the public markets. The company, headquartered at Purdue University Park in West Lafayette, filed last week for an initial public offering. Endocyte has a pipeline of drugs in development for the treatment of various cancers and inflammatory diseases, including six drugs in clinical trials. Endocyte’s IPO is the third announced so far this year in Indiana. Fort Wayne-based Vera Bradley Inc., a handbag maker, filed plans last month to raise $175 million. Evansville-based UCI International, a supplier of replacement parts for the light- and heavy-duty vehicle aftermarket, said in July it plans to raise $200 million. Nationally, the IPO market looks to be improving. So far this year 170 have been filed, topping the 119 filed in 2009 and the 153 in 2008.

Indiana is getting a $1 million federal grant to improve monitoring of health insurance premiums and develop a website to help consumers, according to the Associated Press. The grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is part of the federal health reform bill. The Indiana Department of Insurance will use the money to hire actuaries to help it review proposed premium increases. It also will develop a website on which consumers can review rate filings and post comments. Filings currently are only available in paper form upon request.

IndyFringe

August 25, 2010

Through Aug. 29
Various locations

    Usually I don’t tout already running shows in this e-mail, keeping it dedicated to previews and saving the reviews for the print IBJ and my blog, Lou Harry’s A&E. But given the nature of IndyFringe (and given that it’s a slow week), I thought I’d take the opportunity to re-encourage you to take advantage of the wackiness going on around Mass Ave. through Sunday.
    Two favorites so far: local ShadowApe Theatre Company’s “Not a Peep” which, like the titular Easter treat, has no nutritional value but is deliciously fun, and the not-for-delicate-sensibilities “Screw You Review,” in which an obnoxious senior and cross-dressing sidekick set out to offend everyone and, as a result, end up very endearing. “Peep” has shows remaining Thursday and Sunday at Theatre on the Square. “Revue” can be found at the IndyFringe Building Friday, Saturday and Sunday. For a full schedule, click here.
