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. I never thought I'd see the day when a Republican Mayor would lead the charge in attempting to raise every tax we have to pay. Now it's income taxes and property taxes that Ballard wants to increase. And to pay for a pre-K program? Many studies have shown that pre-K offer no long-term educational benefits whatsoever. And Ballard is pitching it as a way of fighting crime? Who is he kidding? It's about government provided day care. It's a shame that we elected a Republican who has turned out to be a huge big spending, big taxing, big borrowing liberal Democrat.

  2. Why do we blame the unions? They did not create the 11 different school districts that are the root of the problem.

  3. I was just watching an AOW race from cleveland in 1997...in addition to the 65K for the race, there were more people in boats watching that race from the lake than were IndyCar fans watching the 2014 IndyCar season finale in the Fontana grandstands. Just sayin...That's some resurgence modern IndyCar has going. Almost profitable, nobody in the grandstands and TV ratings dropping 61% at some tracks in the series. Business model..."CRAZY" as said by a NASCAR track general manager. Yup, this thing is purring like a cat! Sponsors...send them your cash, pronto!!! LOL, not a chance.

  4. I'm sure Indiana is paradise for the wealthy and affluent, but what about the rest of us? Over the last 40 years, conservatives and the business elite have run this country (and state)into the ground. The pendulum will swing back as more moderate voters get tired of Reaganomics and regressive social policies. Add to that the wave of minority voters coming up in the next 10 to 15 years and things will get better. unfortunately we have to suffer through 10 more years of gerrymandered districts and dispropionate representation.

  5. Funny thing....rich people telling poor people how bad the other rich people are wanting to cut benefits/school etc and that they should vote for those rich people that just did it. Just saying..............
