"A Christmas Carol"

November 23, 2010

Nov. 26-Dec. 26
Indiana Repertory Theatre


In with the new: After 12 years of directing “A Christmas Carol” at the IRT, Priscilla Lindsay has moved on to academia, leaving the holiday standby in the hands of Richard J. Roberts. At the same time, long-standing Scrooge Chuck Goad has turned over his role to actor Ryan Artzberger (recently seen at the Phoenix Theatre in “Reasons to be Pretty”—now that’s range.)

That’s not all that will be different this season. Early-birders attending in November can take advantage of the IRT’s new $25 deal. Also added this year: a series of “Oh What Fun” events tied to each performance, such as a pre-show concert by the Indianapolis Symphonic Band on Nov. 28 and Dec. 18; live reindeer on Dec. 4, 11, 18 and 26; ComedySportz doing holiday improv on Dec. 22; and the Indianapolis Children’s Choir performing Dec. 23.

"The Santaland Diaries"

November 23, 2010

Nov. 24-Dec. 12
Waldron Auditorium, Bloomington
Dec. 2-12
IndyFringe Building


I’ve often wondered why small-scale productions don’t do more traveling around the state. After all, a show staged in West Lafayette or Bloomington or Fort Wayne isn’t likely to have much of an overlapping audience with Indianapolis.

So here’s an experiment I hope will work. Cardinal Stage, Bloomington’s professional theater company, is staging the one-elf show “The Santaland Diaries” at the Waldron Auditorium in Bloomington this weekend—then shipping it up to the IndyFringe Building for an additional two weekends.

The piece, in case you aren’t familiar, is based on humorist David Sedaris’ adventures working as a department store elf. Details here.

West Lafayette-based Kylin Therapeutics Inc. received a nearly $250,000 grant from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service that will advance the company's nanoparticle cancer-treatment research. Kylin's technology uses RNA and a natural process called RNA interference to directly target and "turn off" disease-causing genes. Kylin’s technology was discovered at Purdue University by former Purdue professor Peixuan Guo.

Lilly Ventures, the venture-capital arm of Indianapolis-based Eli Lilly and Co., led a $24 million investment round in Massachusetts-based Cerulean Pharmaceuticals, which is developing nanoparticle drugs. According to Xeconomy.com, the Series C funding round will help Cerulean pay for Phase 2 clinical trials of its leading nanoparticle drug, which is designed to treat lung cancer. Steve Hall, a venture partner at Lilly, has joined Cerulean’s board of directors in connection with the funding round. Cerulean has now raised $56 million in venture capital.

Johnson Memorial Hospital asked county officials to approve a $14 million expansion of its surgical center to accommodate larger surgery suites, as well as new recovery beds and physician offices, according to the Daily Journal of Franklin.

Drew Tretick with the ICO

Julliard-trained electric violinist Drew Tretick, who will be joining the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra for this month’s concert, has taken the stage at such impressive classical venues as the London Palladium. On the other hand, he’s also played for the tourists on the faux streets of Downtown Disney in Orlando.

That’s not the only way Tretick shows range. His recent CD devoted to cinematic compositions covers the familiar (“Over the Rainbow,” “The Way We Were”) and the more esoteric (from the scores for “Cinema Paradiso” and “Quartiere,” for instance). Details on the concert can be found here. And, for your listening pleasure, here’s Tretick stopping Disney foot traffic with “Flight of the Bumblebee.”

Pink Martini with the ISO

November 17, 2010

What language will the next song be sung in? You never know when Pink Martini is on stage. Cosmopolitan playfulness in style and song has been a signature for the Portland, Ore.-based company since it was founded more than 15 years ago by vocalist China Forbes and pianist Thomas Lauderdale.

Surrounded by accomplished musicians—who also like dressing up—the band will be joining the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra for its one-night-only Indy debut. “For me,” says Lauderdale, “Pink Martini is partially an attempt to rebuild a culture which sings and dances.”
Here’s a look at the band’s appearance on “Late Night with David Letterman." For details on the concert, click here.

Company news

November 10, 2010

Employees of public school corporations south of Indianapolis, along with Franklin College and Johnson County government, will be able to get free access to an immediate-care clinic under a new agreement with Johnson Memorial Hospital in Franklin. Called the Express Care Clinic, the service will be provided by the staff at the JMH Immediate Care Center in Franklin. The schools and county government health plans will pay a fee to Johnson Memorial to provide non-emergency care to all participants in their health plans, as well as their dependents. Such direct-contracting arrangements are becoming increasingly common, especially for public-sector employers. The South Central Indiana School Trust set up a similar arrangement last year with Morgan Hospital and Medical Center.

Indianapolis-based Arcadia Resources Inc. narrowed its quarterly loss to $2.9 million, or 2 cents per share, compared with a year-ago loss of $4.1 million, or 3 cents per share. Revenue in the three months ended Sept. 30 rose nearly 3 percent to $25.8 million on 44-percent growth in the company’s DailyMed drug management service. The DailyMed services packages the numerous prescriptions taken by some patients into ready-to-take packets marked with the time of day they’re supposed to be taken. Arcadia’s pharmacists also call patients to help them comply with their prescription regimens. The company signed a 3-year contract extention with Indianapolis-based health insurer WellPoint Inc. to provide the DailyMed service to the Medicaid recipients WellPoint manages in some states. Also, Arcadia signed a new deal with New York-based health plan Touchstone Health, to start providing the DailyMed service to its members on Jan. 1.

Third-quarter profits rose slightly at WellPoint Inc. but soared above Wall Street expectations. The Indianapolis-based health insurer raised its full-year profit forecast by 20 cents per share, excluding investment gains, to $6.45 per share. WellPoint earned $739 million during the three months ended Sept. 30, a 1-percent gain over the same quarter a year ago. The profits were driven by lower-than-expected claims expenses and lower administrative costs. Profits per share totaled $1.84. But excluding investment gains of 10 cents, the company would have earned $1.74 per share, a slight decrease from the $1.78 per share it earned a year ago. Analysts were expecting profit of $1.57 per share, according to a survey by Thomson Reuters. Quarterly revenue of $14.6 billion also edged analysts’ expectations, even though it fell 5 percent from the same quarter last year.

A swing in investment results boosted CNO Financial Group Inc.'s third-quarter profits, even as accounting charges depressed the performance of its underlying insurance businesses. The Carmel-based life and health insurer's investment losses and special charges from a year ago turned into slight investment gains this year, allowing it to boost third-quarter profit by 221 percent to $49.4 million. Profit per share was 17 cents, compared with 8 cents in the same quarter a year ago. Excluding charges, the company recorded operating income of 16 cents per share. On that basis, Wall Street analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters were expecting 15 cents per share. Revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30 fell 6 percent to $1.05 billion.

  1. Cramer agrees...says don't buy it and sell it if you own it! Their "pay to play" cost is this issue. As long as they charge customers, they never will attain the critical mass needed to be a successful on company...Jim Cramer quote.

  2. My responses to some of the comments would include the following: 1. Our offer which included the forgiveness of debt (this is an immediate forgiveness and is not "spread over many years")represents debt that due to a reduction of interest rates in the economy arguably represents consideration together with the cash component of our offer that exceeds the $2.1 million apparently offered by another party. 2. The previous $2.1 million cash offer that was turned down by the CRC would have netted the CRC substantially less than $2.1 million. As a result even in hindsight the CRC was wise in turning down that offer. 3. With regard to "concerned Carmelite's" discussion of the previous financing Pedcor gave up $16.5 million in City debt in addition to the conveyance of the garage (appraised at $13 million)in exchange for the $22.5 million cash and debt obligations. The local media never discussed the $16.5 million in debt that we gave up which would show that we gave $29.5 million in value for the $23.5 million. 4.Pedcor would have been much happier if Brian was still operating his Deli and only made this offer as we believe that we can redevelop the building into something that will be better for the City and City Center where both Pedcor the citizens of Carmel have a large investment. Bruce Cordingley, President, Pedcor

  3. I've been looking for news on Corner Bakery, too, but there doesn't seem to be any info out there. I prefer them over Panera and Paradise so can't wait to see where they'll be!

  4. WGN actually is two channels: 1. WGN Chicago, seen only in Chicago (and parts of Canada) - this station is one of the flagship CW affiliates. 2. WGN America - a nationwide cable channel that doesn't carry any CW programming, and doesn't have local affiliates. (In addition, as WGN is owned by Tribune, just like WTTV, WTTK, and WXIN, I can't imagine they would do anything to help WISH.) In Indianapolis, CW programming is already seen on WTTV 4 and WTTK 29, and when CBS takes over those stations' main channels, the CW will move to a sub channel, such as 4.2 or 4.3 and 29.2 or 29.3. TBS is only a cable channel these days and does not affiliate with local stations. WISH could move the MyNetwork affiliation from WNDY 23 to WISH 8, but I am beginning to think they may prefer to put together their own lineup of syndicated programming instead. While much of it would be "reruns" from broadcast or cable, that's pretty much what the MyNetwork does these days anyway. So since WISH has the choice, they may want to customize their lineup by choosing programs that they feel will garner better ratings in this market.

  5. The Pedcor debt is from the CRC paying ~$23M for the Pedcor's parking garage at City Center that is apprased at $13M. Why did we pay over the top money for a private businesses parking? What did we get out of it? Pedcor got free parking for their apartment and business tenants. Pedcor now gets another building for free that taxpayers have ~$3M tied up in. This is NOT a win win for taxpayers. It is just a win for Pedcor who contributes heavily to the Friends of Jim Brainard. The campaign reports are on the Hamilton County website. http://www2.hamiltoncounty.in.gov/publicdocs/Campaign%20Finance%20Images/defaultfiles.asp?ARG1=Campaign Finance Images&ARG2=/Brainard, Jim
