The deadline is approaching for our April 6 trip to Cincinnati's Aronoff Center for the Arts to see "War Horse." Seats are filling, so get on board now if you can join us.

In addition to seeing the award-winning show, you'll be part of a post-show discussion with "War Horse" company members. 

Not only will I be along for the ride, sharing trivia and adding some perspective, but I'm thrilled to announce that Patrick Weigand, former Technical Coordinator and Puppeteer for the nationally touring Das Puppenspiel Puppet Theatre and creator of puppets for the Children's Museum of Indianapolis, Phoenix Theatre's "Avenue Q," and NoExit's "Nutcracker" and "I Am Peter Pan" will be with us as well. He'll be sharing his insight along the way as well as during our post-show dinner at Nicholson's in Cincy.

And don't forget about "Big Fish," April 27 in Chicago. That new, heading-for-Broadway production carries with it an amazing lineup of talent. First, there’s Tony-winning star Norbert Leo Butz, one of the most dynamic, charismatic musical theater actors I’ve ever seen on stage. After seeing him off-Broadway in "The Last Five Years" and on Broadway in "Catch Me If You Can," I decided that I’d be willing to see him in anything. And, in this case, he’s working with director Susan Stroman ("The Producers," "Crazy for You," etc.) and composer Andrew Lippa ("The Wild Party").

  1. With Pence running the ship good luck with a new government building on the site. He does everything on the cheap except unnecessary roads line a new beltway( like we need that). Things like state of the art office buildings and light rail will never be seen as an asset to these types. They don't get that these are the things that help a city prosper.

  2. Does the $100,000,000,000 include salaries for members of Congress?

  3. "But that doesn't change how the piece plays to most of the people who will see it." If it stands out so little during the day as you seem to suggest maybe most of the people who actually see it will be those present when it is dark enough to experience its full effects.

  4. That's the mentality of most retail marketers. In this case Leo was asked to build the brand. HHG then had a bad sales quarter and rather than stay the course, now want to go back to the schlock that Zimmerman provides (at a considerable cut in price.) And while HHG salesmen are, by far, the pushiest salesmen I have ever experienced, I believe they are NOT paid on commission. But that doesn't mean they aren't trained to be aggressive.

  5. The reason HHG's sales team hits you from the moment you walk through the door is the same reason car salesmen do the same thing: Commission. HHG's folks are paid by commission they and need to hit sales targets or get cut, while BB does not. The sales figures are aggressive, so turnover rate is high. Electronics are the largest commission earners along with non-needed warranties, service plans etc, known in the industry as 'cheese'. The wholesale base price is listed on the cryptic price tag in the string of numbers near the bar code. Know how to decipher it and you get things at cost, with little to no commission to the sales persons. Whether or not this is fair, is more of a moral question than a financial one.
