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. PJ - Mall operators like Simon, and most developers/ land owners, establish individual legal entities for each property to avoid having a problem location sink the ship, or simply structure the note to exclude anything but the property acting as collateral. Usually both. The big banks that lend are big boys that know the risks and aren't mad at Simon for forking over the deed and walking away.

  2. Do any of the East side residence think that Macy, JC Penny's and the other national tenants would have letft the mall if they were making money?? I have read several post about how Simon neglected the property but it sounds like the Eastsiders stopped shopping at the mall even when it was full with all of the national retailers that you want to come back to the mall. I used to work at the Dick's at Washington Square and I know for a fact it's the worst performing Dick's in the Indianapolis market. You better start shopping there before it closes also.

  3. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  4. If you only knew....

  5. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.
