You-review-It Monday: Big festival weekend

Seems like there were festivals everywhere this weekend. There was art on Talbot Street, music at the Harrison Center, and lots more.

My weekend included making the rounds through a crowded PrideFest (which included a high-heel kick off with players trying to kick shoes off their feet and over a goal post) and the music-infused Carmel Art & Design District Gallery Walk.

And, after posting this, I'll be checking to make sure I have enough oil and popcorn for the Tony Awards broadcast tonight (follow my tweets @IBJarts).

Alas, I didn't get to see "Zanna Don't!" in its opening weekend at Theatre on the Square or Ana Gasteyer at the Cabaret. Anybody have a cloning machine I could borrow?

Care to share your weekend A&E experiences?

  • Prideful weekend!
    Anna Gasteyer was absolutely outstanding. She looked fantastic...much younger and thinner than her Saturday Night Live characters. Unbelievable energy and I'm sorry you missed her. Saturday's weather was perfect for the Pride Parade and Festival. Although the parade did not seem any longer than last year, the crowds along the route seemed larger. Lots of kids along the route and in the parade reflecting the ever-changing face of the gay community. If there were 80,000 for the festival last year, I would estimate 100,000 this year. My only disappointment for the day was seeing the very sad obesity problem in much of the gay and lesbian community!
  • Great parade!
    I just have to give a shout-out to Nick Murphy and his crew for an excellent Pride festival. I thought the parade was even bigger and better this year. It made me really happy to see the large group of youth marching behind their license plate banner. I hope that they felt the love and support of their community. Had to make a stop at Harrison for some shopping and a quick trip through Talbot. Sunday was the always good Meridian-Kessler Home tour (not an art event, but neat nonetheless!) Busy weekend, but fun :-)
  • Laugh A Lot!
    OK, you must go see Spam a Lot! Even if you are not a Monty Python fan, it is beyond hilarious! The casting and talent is beyond reproach. Highly, highly recommend this play to anyone who might need a laugh!
