You-review-it Monday: 500 celebs and more

What--or who--did you see this weekend?

For me, the weekend included a visit to the Phoenix Theatre for "Speech and Debate" and the start of my annual effort to see most of the movies that will be part of the Indianapolis International Film Festival (So far, I'm very pleased, but I can't talk about them yet).

How about you? Did you do some celeb spotting at the race, the parade, the Monument concert or one of the parties? Did you make this a movie weekend?

Even though it's a holiday Monday, you can still share your thoughts here. Just try not to get mustard on the keyboard.

    Saw Theatre on The Square's production of"The Great American Trailer Park Musical" on opening nite Friday. I laughed so much at this very funny show. Great cast with wonderful voices.
  • Movie Weekend
    I had the rare pleasure of going to a movie this weekend and my husband and I appropriately picked 'Date Night' with Tina Fey and Steve Carell. We both thought it was one of the funniest movies we have seen in a long time and would highly recommend it...although if you aren't married and/or have children I suspect some of the jokes may not be nearly as funny.
  • Broadway Weekend
    I had the pleasure of getting out of town to NYC for the holiday weekend. I live 30 blocks from the Speedway, but I can still hear the race, so I use race weekend to take my mom to New York for a Broadway Blitz. This year we saw Hair, Million Dollar Quartet, and Fela. If anyone is planning a trip to NY, I highly recommend all 3 of these shows.

    I read a review of MDQ that said "Lance Guest channels Johnny Cash" and I have to agree with the reviewer. I was absolutely blown away by his performance. Although I gotta say that all of the cast was spectacular and Levi Kreis really rocked the piano like Jerry Lee Lewis. MDQ is also playing in Chicago, where it originated, so I'm hoping to see it again in Chicago this summer.

    The music and dancing in Fela was incredible and I was close enough to feel the sweat and wind coming off those amazing dancers! At the same time, the show's message about Fela's life and political struggles was both powerful and thought provoking.

    Finally, the new cast of Hair lives up to the high standards set by the original Broadway cast. Former American Idol, Ace Young, did a fantastic portrayal of Berger. And who can resist a chance to dance on stage at the end of the show, right?
  • Phoenix Theater
    I saw "Speech and Debate" at Phoenix. I thought the cast was quite good, especially the female character. However the play could use some tightening. There were places in the second act that really seemed to drag and could've been cut or pulled into one scene with less scene changes. Also the scene changes were little skits to give the actors time for costume changes. In my opinion, they were too repetitive.

  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.
