For me, the weekend included a trip to the Tarkington for Civic's "Into the Woods" and a trip outdoors to Garfield Park for NoExit's "Our Experiences During the First Day of Alligators," a new play by David Hoppe.

I also stopped in to see the First Friday activity at the Harrison Center (including the work of Emma Overman) on my way to the Cabaret at the Columbia Club for a performance by Emily Skinner.

More on most of that later.

In the meantime, please share what you saw over the weekend, be it "Iron Man 3," the Onyx Festival at Indy Fringe, the ISO at Hilbert Circle Theatre or anything else.

Your thoughts?

  • OnyxFest
    I saw three plays in the OnyxFest at the Fringe Building over the weekend, and what a shame more people don't support this. OnyxFest features new plays by african-Anerican playwrights and they at least still have real issues to deal with. Who's responsible for black on black violence ("The Layover")? Dreams delayed and dreams chased ("Reflections") and the impact of slavery on the kids growing up in it ("Where the Waters Run"). Acting is uneven, some great, some not, but these are plays in development. Performances continue next weekend. Check it out.
  • Iron Man 3
    Took my great-nephew to see Iron Man 3 for his birthday--a S*U*C*C*E*S*S*! (and a plus, I enjoyed it too!)
  • Into The Woods/First Friday
    I saw Into The Woods at Civic last Saturday. I thought the actress portraying the "wicked witch" was amazing! Her voice gave me chills. Hurray to Red Riding Hood who did a fantastic job, even with an injury to her leg, which was bandaged up. I experienced First Friday at the Conrad Indianapolis. Several featured artists were there in person including Constance Scopelitis and Dale Enochs. The lobby and the Long-Sharp Gallery look amazing!

  1. From the story: "The city of Indianapolis also will consider tax incentives and funding for infrastructure required for the project, according to IEDC." Why would the City need to consider additional tax incentives when Lowe's has already bought the land and reached an agreement with IEDC to bring the jobs? What that tells me is that the City has already pledged the incentives, unofficially, and they just haven't had time to push it through the MDC yet. Either way, subsidizing $10/hour jobs is going to do nothing toward furthering the Mayor's stated goal of attracting middle and upper-middle class residents to Marion County.

  2. Ron Spencer and the entire staff of Theater on the Square embraced IndyFringe when it came to Mass Ave in 2005. TOTS was not only a venue but Ron and his friends created, presented and appeared in shows which embraced the 'spirit of the fringe'. He's weathered all the storms and kept smiling ... bon voyage and thank you.

  3. Not sure how many sushi restaurants are enough, but there are three that I know of in various parts of downtown proper and all are pretty good.

  4. First off, it's "moron," not "moran." 2nd, YOU don't get to vote on someone else's rights and freedoms that are guaranteed by the US Constitution. That's why this is not a state's rights issue...putting something like this to vote by, well, people like you who are quite clearly intellectually challenged isn't necessary since the 14th amendment has already decided the issue. Which is why Indiana's effort is a wasted one and a waste of money...and will be overturned just like this has in every other state.

  5. Rick, how does granting theright to marry to people choosing to marry same-sex partners harm the lives of those who choose not to? I cannot for the life of me see any harm to people who choose not to marry someone of the same sex. We understand your choice to take the parts of the bible literally in your life. That is fine but why force your religious beliefs on others? I'm hoping the judges do the right thing and declare the ban unconstitutional so all citizens of Wisconsin and Indiana have the same marriage rights and that those who chose someone of the same sex do not have less rights than others.
