More columns are popping up from those scribes who attended the IBJ-sponsored American Theatre Critics Association conference in Indianapolis in March. I'll keep posting as long as they keep writing.

This time...

... Jay Handleman at the Sarasota Herald-Tribune focused on Michael Feinstein, the Palladium and the Great American Songbook archives. See story here.

... Charles Giuliano of Berkshine Fine Arts also wrote about Feinstein's work and performance digs (see stories here and here) but also devoted columns to the Indianapolis Museum of Art (here), IndyFringe (here) and Dance Kaleidoscope (here).

...Marie J. Kilker of the website Aisle Say commented on just about the entire conference here, including the Phoenix's "The Lyons" ("...sterling performances..."), Heartland Actors Repertory Theatre ("...Vonnegut would have been proud..."), and the IRT's "The Whipping Man" (including the "outstanding" David Alan Anderson).

But it wasn't just the critics who commented. One of their guests, an actress from L.A., sent a note saying, "Never having been to Indy before, I had no idea what to expect. Boy, was I impressed! A city full of many cultural riches and very friendly folks."

No argument there.
