There's no shortage of stuff to do this week. Here are some events at the top of my priority list.

“The Whipping Man”

March 5-24

Indiana Repertory Theatre

Think there’s nothing new to say about race in America? Well, consider this play set just after the Civil War during a Passover meal between two former slaves and their former master. My colleagues in other cities who have seen the show say brace yourself for the amputation scene. David Alan Anderson stars. Details here.

Caswell Sisters 

March 1

Jazz Kitchen

Rachel is a vocalist who has performed with the Glenn Miller Orchestra and the Billy Taylor Trio. Sara is a violinist who has toured with Esperanza Spalding and recorded with Skitch Henderson and Charlie Byrd. Together, they make beautiful music—as typified in a stunning version of Billy Joel’s “And So It Goes” on one of Sara’s discs. But the sisters haven’t collaborated on a full album together. That changes with this event, where the Caswell Sisters launch their new recording, “Alive in the Singing Air,” which includes standards “I Get Along Without You Very Well” and “Bye Bye Blackbird,” along with less-familiar material. Details here.

First Friday 

March 1

Various locations

Heard about—but haven’t seen—the art at the new Alexander Hotel? Stop in on First Friday, when tours are offered from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Of course, that shouldn’t be your only stop. While you are out, visit the Harrison Center, where the work of Herron professor Linda Adele Goodine and her studio assistant, Kyle Channing Smith, are featured. Meanwhile, at the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library, film historian Eric Grayson shares WWII military training films. No matter where you go, consider stopping at the Indiana Landmarks Center for Night Cap, featuring music by Monika Herzig, Heather Ramsey and more. Galleries are free. Night Cap admission is $7.

  1. They can always get jobs at the Post office.

  2. Hello i am Clarisa Steve from Florida USA,when i was in need of a loan of $230,000 to transit a business my friend introduced Mark Oscar loan firm to me because she got a loan from them sometime ago, so I was so scared because of the scams in the internet but my friend encouraged me to give them a try and i gave them a try and i got my loan within 4hrs and their ways was very easy no credit check,no cosigner,no collateral and their interest rate is just 2%, so i will advice anyone out there that need a loan to contact them via their Email:(oscarloanfinance@hotmail.com).

  3. "This was a very localized, Indiana issue," he said. As in, Indiana failed to expand Medicaid to cover its poor citizens resulting in the loss of essential medical services, including this EMS company. Well done, Indiana GOP. Here are the real death panels: GOP state governments who refuse to expand Medicaid for political reasons.

  4. In the "one for all, all for none" socialist doctrine the sick die...this plus obama"care" equates to caucasian genocide plus pushed flight to cities thus further eroding the conservative base and the continualed spiral toward complete liberal/progressive/marxist America.

  5. There is a simple reason why WISH is not reporting on this story. LIN has others stations in different markets that are affiliated with CBS. Reporting about CBS blindsiding WISH/LIN due to CBS's greed and bullying tatics would risk any future negoations LIN will have with CBS in other markets.
