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. This is still my favorite Mexican restaurant in town. What I do love about the new version is it is much quieter than the most recent version. TV's were off, the music wasn't too loud, and the wait staff were not hyperactive like they had been the past few times I had been there. I just wish they would bring back the MOLE for the enchiladas!

  2. Not a bad paper. There is a need for local community news and city government issues. Don't really need the owner's constant national political rants. We all know where they stand by now.

  3. What nice people. Menard should've known better than to team up with the guy who robbed and drove Conseco to ashes. I'm surprised Timothy Durham isn't involved in this.

  4. Hello, I am Maris Peters, currently living in Texas city, USA. I am a widow at the moment with three kids and i was stuck in a financial situation in August 2014 and i needed to refinance and pay my bills. I tried seeking loans from various loan Companies both private and corporate but never with success, and most banks declined my credit. But as God would have it, I was introduced to a Man of God a private loan lender who gave me a loan of $65,000USD and today am a business owner and my kids are doing well at the moment, if you must contact any firm or company with reference to securing a loan without collateral , no credit check, no co signer with just 2% interest rate and better repayment plans and schedule, please contact Mr William David. He doesn’t know that am doing this but am so happy now and i decided to let people know more about him and also i want God to bless him more.You can contact him through his email: Davidloanfirm@yahoo.com

  5. It is beyond me how anyone can think this was a "bad deal" for the state! If they could take the money back then, yes, but they can't! Protections were built in the agreement. Now, if they roll the roads up and take them away, I will agree that it was a bad deal. Otherwise, the only way to have paid for the infrastructure that was badly needed was for the state to issue bonds....that is a four letter synonym for debt folks!!
