For me, the weekend included catching the Phoenix Theatre's regional premier of "Seminar" (which I saw and reviewed earlier this year on Broadway--more on this production soon). I also satisfied my curiosity about the ambitious-but-muddled "Cloud Atlas" at the movies and caught up on some reading for my upcoming IBJ column.

Speaking of the column, this week's focuses on the first IBJ A&E Road Trip to Chicago Shakespeare Theatre and the Art Institute of Chicago. Read it here.

So what did you hear, see or do on the arts and entertainment front this weekend?

Your thoughts?

  • Seminar
    Your Chicago trip sounds fun, Lou! I enjoyed reading about it. Also, re-reading your review of the Broadway production of "Seminar" helped me to articulate my own response to the Phoenix' production, so thanks for that, too, Lou. I wrote about it on my own blog, Indy Theatre Habit. There's some wonderful acting in the Phoenix show. Hope Baugh
  • Brian Regan
    My entire family and I (grandparents included) spent a terrific Friday evening with comedian Brian Regan that Murat. I find Brian to be the most brilliant of all current stand-up comedians. His act has equal measures of physical comedy, word-play, and just downright hillarious observations about everyday life. Although he made his name with hillaious bits that are now 5 to 10 years old, his show Friday night was 90% new stuff. And, he does it all with completely clean comedy.

    The Woman in Black at the Civic Theatre was very well done and an excellent show.
  • ISSMA Marching Semi State
    Those in attendance were able to enjoy the results of 100's of high school students' many hours of practice. 20 bands/colorguard in each Class presented their best in the hopes of being selected as one of the 10 (for each class) to move on to State Competition (this weekend at Lucas Oil). At Ben Davis, we experienced the Class A bands. This is truly a total experience, both auditory and visual! What some of these groups do is just amazing. Fans just needed to know how to dress for the weather!

  1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
