You-review-it Monday

Yes, I was at Lucas Oil Stadium over the weekend.

Okay, it was Saturday night, not Sunday. And rather than watching the Colts' amazing turnaround, I was experiencing the Bands of America Grand National Championships. (More on that later).

I also spent some weekend hours at the Christmas Gift and Hobby Show at the State Fairgrounds (Thank you to those who stopped by to say hello in the author's area) and reading Ball State prof Wes Gehring's latest book "Steve McQueen: The Great Escape."

And you?

Did you catch Actors Theatre of Indiana's Sinatra show? Butler U.'s "Merchant of Venice"? A comedy show at Morty's or a Robin Williams at the Murat? Catch any of the Spirit & Place events?

What were your A&E experiences over the last few days?

    I had the opportunity to run up to Chicago on Saturday to see a matinee of Young Frankenstein followed by the pre-Broadway premier of The Addams Family. It's always fascinating seeing a show evolve from the pre-Broadway previews to Broadway and then on tour. I highly recommend making the trip up to Chicago to catch this before it goes to the big leagues.

    Barbara,
    Sounds like a good day. Your thoughts on Young Frankenstein (which hasn't yet made it to Indy)?
  • Joshua Bell
    Saw Joshua Bell perform with the Indianapolis Symphony Friday night and it confirmed just how amazing a musician he is. While I wasn't blown away by the musical selections (not my favorite composers), I understood why these pieces might have been selected to highly his amazing bowing skills and nuanced fingering. Having played the violin in the past, I understand that only a few reach Bell's level of professionalism. And what can you say about the high level of musicianship by the ISO--they're a treasure.

  2. We are a nation of speed. All of our younger lives are filled with deadlines, quotas and bottom lines. We start to ease out of the pressured rat-race when we finally see "retirement." The most enjoyable travel on the planet is passenger rail service. Indy to Chicago does not beat Megabus or Southwest Airlines in speed. Passenger rail however has the best seating, mammoth legroon, seat backs that recline to more than 45 degrees and employers that really want you to return as a customer. Indiana municipalities need to maintain subsidies to support this transportation mode. Losing it is loss for all of us.
