Welcome to the new year—an exciting one, I hope, for arts and entertainment in Indy and for IBJ A&E.

In the coming months, you can look forward to…

…a revamped weekly IBJ A&E e-mail blast featuring more critically selected previews, links, ticket giveaways, videos, photos and more. Not getting the free Thursday e-mail? Click here and select "IBJ Daily plus A&E."  Interested in advertising in it? Click here or call 317-472-5319.

…more reviews, both in the print edition of IBJ and on the Lou Harry’s A&E blog (find it here).

…more IBJ A&E Road Trips. In fact, we’ve got two that are booking right now. One is to the new Broadway-bound musical “Big Fish,” which will be premiering in Chicago. The other is to Cincinnati to see the national tour of “War Horse.” I’ll be hosting both, which include backstage opportunities, arts chats, and more. The first one sold out so book now. Info here.

…the IBJ A&E Season Preview supplement, a September tradition, which has now been joined by the IBJ A&E Season Preview Live Event. Both provide great opportunities to learn more about what’s on the way. Watch the blog for details on both.

--the Indy Actors' Playground. That's a free monthly play reading series I'm co-developing at Indy Reads Books. Details here.

…ATCA in Indy. IBJ A&E is bringing the American Theatre Critics Association to Indy for the first time for a weekend conference in March packed with panels and theater productions, showcasing work created here. Volunteers may be needed to help make this event the huge success I know it can be. Send a note here if you are interested in helping (particularly if you have access to a minibus).

…continues IBJ A&E weekly segments on Fox59 (Thursday mornings), WIBC (Friday mornings) and other media outlets.

…and, of course, more.

The overarching goal in all of this is to connect audience to arts and entertainment in both traditional and new ways. I hope you'll resolve to take advantage of what IBJ has to offer and use it to motivate you to get out to see more and do more.

Here’s to a great year.

  • I'm looking forward to:
    A Little Night Music at IRT (about time we get some local Sondheim again) and much of the spring productions at the Phoenix. They really are having a banner season offering the local debut of some major off-Broadway and Broadway acclaimed works.
  • Wonderful!
    What a wonderful list! Looking forward to an inspiring, graceful 2013.

  1. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  2. If you only knew....

  3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

  4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

  5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
