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. If I were a developer I would be looking at the Fountain Square and Fletcher Place neighborhoods instead of Broad Ripple. I would avoid the dysfunctional BRVA with all of their headaches. It's like deciding between a Blackberry or an iPhone 5s smartphone. BR is greatly in need of updates. It has become stale and outdated. Whereas Fountain Square, Fletcher Place and Mass Ave have become the "new" Broad Ripples. Every time I see people on the strip in BR on the weekend I want to ask them, "How is it you are not familiar with Fountain Square or Mass Ave? You have choices and you choose BR?" Long vacant storefronts like the old Scholar's Inn Bake House and ZA, both on prominent corners, hurt the village's image. Many business on the strip could use updated facades. Cigarette butt covered sidewalks and graffiti covered walls don't help either. The whole strip just looks like it needs to be power washed. I know there is more to the BRV than the 700-1100 blocks of Broad Ripple Ave, but that is what people see when they think of BR. It will always be a nice place live, but is quickly becoming a not-so-nice place to visit.

  2. I sure hope so and would gladly join a law suit against them. They flat out rob people and their little punk scam artist telephone losers actually enjoy it. I would love to run into one of them some day!!

  3. Biggest scam ever!! Took 307 out of my bank ac count. Never received a single call! They prey on new small business and flat out rob them! Do not sign up with these thieves. I filed a complaint with the ftc. I suggest doing the same ic they robbed you too.

  4. Woohoo! We're #200!!! Absolutely disgusting. Bring on the congestion. Indianapolis NEEDS it.

  5. So Westfield invested about $30M in developing Grand Park and attendance to date is good enough that local hotel can't meet the demand. Carmel invested $180M in the Palladium - which generates zero hotel demand for its casino acts. Which Mayor made the better decision?
