You-review-it Monday: Weegee etc.

Yes, it rained. But there was still plenty to do indoors.

Last week, I visited the new show devoted to famed photographer Weegee at the Indianapolis Museum of Art and caught the national tour of "A Chorus Line" at Clowes Hall. Thoughts on both can be found here.

What about you? Did you give a listen to cutting edge performers at the Intermedia Festival at the Central Library? Attend the Christamore House Book & Author Luncheon? Get tired of waiting for summer films and see one of the Spring offerings at your nearest multiplex?

Your thoughts?

  • A Chorus Line
    The tour of the revival of A Chorus Line is so misguided. Very, very disappointed.
  • A Chorus Line
    The first time I saw A Chorus Line was in the 1st grade. I was studying ballet and gymnastics, aspiring to be a dancer. The neighborhood busybody accused my mom of being a terrible parent for taking me to see a show with "those words" in it.

    Over the years, I've seen the show several times and have enjoyed revisiting old friends. However, this cast really didn't seem to make the characters come alive. In particular, Nick Venditti's portrayal of Paul was forced and lifeless. The tears, the fall, were all phony and unbelievable. Comparatively, Daniel Cruz's performance of Paul in Seattle 5th Avenue Theatre's production brought tears to our eyes and my mom found herself worrying about Paul/Daniel on the way home as if he the character was real.

    My advice to the performers of this tour is to take some advice from Mr. Carp and try to FEEL it.
  • Theatre: Victorian-style
    I attended the President Benjamin Harrison Home's Victorian Theatre...what a welcome break from the norm. You actually experience a trilogy of one-act mystery classics presented salon-style in the historic rooms where Indiana's only president and his family lived. It was a sold-out show, and affordable tickets...
  • what I did?
    It didn't rain all weekend. I did the SPICE Challenge on Saturday! the canapy zipline tour, an excellent way to expand who you thought you are/were....!!
  • Dancing, Zipline, Dancing
    Friday night I went swing dancing down in Fountain Square. Saturday I facilitated at the Spice Challenge Zipline Canopy Tour and closed the night out by winning a limbo competition and dancing.

  1. Of what value is selling alcoholic beverages to State Fair patrons when there are many families with children attending. Is this the message we want to give children attending and participating in the Fair, another venue with alooholic consumption onsite. Is this to promote beer and wine production in the state which are great for the breweries and wineries, but where does this end up 10-15 years from now, lots more drinkers for the alcoholic contents. If these drinks are so important, why not remove the alcohol content and the flavor and drink itself similar to soft drinks would be the novelty, not the alcoholic content and its affects on the drinker. There is no social or material benefit from drinking alcoholic beverages, mostly people want to get slightly or highly drunk.

  2. I did;nt know anyone in Indiana could count- WHY did they NOT SAY just HOW this would be enforced? Because it WON;T! NOW- with that said- BIG BROTHER is ALIVE in this Article-why take any comment if it won't appease YOU PEOPLE- that's NOT American- with EVERYTHING you indicated is NOT said-I can see WHY it say's o Comments- YOU are COMMIES- BIG BROTHER and most likely- voted for Obama!

  3. In Europe there are schools for hairdressing but you don't get a license afterwards but you are required to assist in turkey and Italy its 7 years in japan it's 10 years England 2 so these people who assist know how to do hair their not just anybody and if your an owner and you hire someone with no experience then ur an idiot I've known stylist from different countries with no license but they are professional clean and safe they have no license but they have experience a license doesn't mean anything look at all the bad hairdressers in the world that have fried peoples hair okay but they have a license doesn't make them a professional at their job I think they should get rid of it because stateboard robs stylist and owners and they fine you for the dumbest f***ing things oh ur license isn't displayed 100$ oh ur wearing open toe shoes fine, oh there's ONE HAIR IN UR BRUSH that's a fine it's like really? So I think they need to go or ease up on their regulations because their too strict

  4. Exciting times in Carmel.

  5. Twenty years ago when we moved to Indy I was a stay at home mom and knew not very many people.WIBC was my family and friends for the most part. It was informative, civil, and humerous with Dave the KING. Terri, Jeff, Stever, Big Joe, Matt, Pat and Crumie. I loved them all, and they seemed to love each other. I didn't mind Greg Garrison, but I was not a Rush fan. NOW I can't stand Chicks and all their giggly opinions. Tony Katz is to abrasive that early in the morning(or really any time). I will tune in on Saturday morning for the usual fun and priceless information from Pat and Crumie, mornings it will be 90.1
