From the Fringe Building to the Columbia Club, this week was—for me (and 40 guests)—a whirlwind of theater, panels, Q&A sessions and more. 

I'll write more about the American Theatre Critics Association Indy conference elsewhere, and link you to what these out-of-towners have to say about their experiences here. Plus, you can read all the tweets @atcaindy13).

For now, let's hear about what you saw.

Did you get to hear the glorious Barbara Cook at the Palladium? Or take a break from college basketball to visit the Symphony or the IMA? Sit in on "The Whipping Man," "The Lyons," or "Piaf Plus" in their final weekends? 

Take a break from watching the snow fall to let us know what you saw, heard or experienced A&E-ish over the weekend.

Your thoughts?

    I was one of the lucky 40 members of the American Theatre Critics Association who had the privilege of following Lou Harry around this weekend has he showed off Indianapolis area theater and cultural offerings. Congratulations to Lou and the IBJ (which fully supported this gathering) for putting Indy on the national theater map, and to the professional offerings in Indianapolis and Carmel for doing this area proud.

  1. I am also a "vet" of several Cirque shows and this one left me flat. It didn't have the amount of acrobatic stunts as the others that I have seen. I am still glad that I went to it and look forward to the next one but I put Varekai as my least favorite.

  2. Looking at the two companies - in spite of their relative size to one another -- Ricker's image is (by all accounts) pretty solid and reputable. Their locations are clean, employees are friendly and the products they offer are reasonably priced. By contrast, BP locations are all over the place and their reputation is poor, especially when you consider this is the same "company" whose disastrous oil spill and their response was nothing short of irresponsible should tell you a lot. The fact you also have people who are experienced in franchising saying their system/strategy is flawed is a good indication that another "spill" has occurred and it's the AM-PM/Ricker's customers/company that are having to deal with it.

  3. Daniel Lilly - Glad to hear about your points and miles. Enjoy Wisconsin and Illinois. You don't care one whit about financial discipline, which is why you will blast the "GOP". Classic liberalism.

  4. Isn't the real reason the terrain? The planners under-estimated the undulating terrain, sink holes, karst features, etc. This portion of the route was flawed from the beginning.

  5. You thought no Indy was bad, how's no fans working out for you? THe IRl No direct competition and still no fans. Hey George Family, spend another billion dollars, that will fix it.
