As you may have noticed from the previous two blog posts, I spent a fair amount of time this weekend at the Indy Fringe festival--and only saw a small percentage of the offerings.

What about you? Did you hear some music on the prairie or the canal? Catch Stallone at the multiplex or DK at the A?

What did you hear, see or do this weekend?

Your thoughts?

  • 2010 Fringe
    I really liked "Lot o'Shakespeare", Tim does a great job with the monologues of Shakespeares plays and some sonnets. I also really liked "Not a Peep". It was wonderful! "Hurry up Jesus" was great - just hope that Comedy Sportz gets the AC cranked up for his next performance. Poor fellow - he probably shed some lbs on Saturday. Can't wait to see "Screw You Review" tonight and Ron Spencer in "Bitch Sessions".
  • Crazy fun!
    Convinced a friend to join me as a teammate in Indy's first Twilight Town Trek - a sort of Amazing Race through downtown. We covered 4+ miles on foot (the only acceptable means of transportation, other than IndyGo), solving 13 clues and participating in challenges that included playing charades at the top of the Pro Patria monument and kissing a dog on Mass Ave by James Tyler's Brickhead. I never realized just how many statues we have here! Fifty-five teams competed and we came in 14th overall. The event was total fun and plans to make a stop here again next summer.

    ArtSparkle at the Indianapolis Art Center was just beautiful Saturday night. The gala featured live music, firedancers, belly dancers, great food from local restaurants and more. Super fun event for a good cause!
  • WAMM
    WAMM Fest in Greenwood - good music, good beverages, good food. My sister and I spent a very enjoyable afternoon.
  • My Favorites
    FEMOIR is probably my favorite so far. It's very lively, energetic and charming, especially when she does improvisational mingling with the audience that is just as "well written" as the skits she had time to rehearse.
    TEEN JESUS- I feel this show fills the role that ANOTHER CLASSIC OF WESTERN CIVILLIZATION had last year. Very biting, rambunctious, irreverent humor. For my money, it hit all those notes perfectly.
    PLEASE DON'T USE MY FLANNEL FOR THAT- I probably didn't get the title down verbatim but you get the idea. Much more subdued but no less entertaining than other fringe shows, she has a very dry, witty sardonic presence that is able to delight the audience without having to raise her voice once.
    And finally, Ophelia's Revenge is just too cute and fun to pass up. Hope this isn't too long. I just wanted to give each show I mentioned a reason why I find them appealing. cheers.
    • dont u luv me
      I saw Young Actors Theater's production of "Don't U Luv Me?" This is a show with a message. This show has current music technology and superb acting. It shows how domestic emotional and physical abuse can start at an early age.

    1. Yes sir keep cashing those 300K a year checks direct to IMS, while millions disappear from the teams like Rahal's. Guess there wasn't enough ka- ching going around to keep Sarah Fisher in business without their "merger". LOL._____.Meanwhile back in Realville the series with the "best racing in the world" drew what appeared to be about 5000 live spectators ( and probably 1500 of those Target "freebies", and was beaten in the ratings by a series that reportedly consists of "parades" and aired while most people are still sleeping. That will generate those big ka-chings for sure. :-). But, hey, as long as the Speedway gets the cash who gives a damn about the teams?

    3. If I could actually get the prices...I would do this on my own. We need laws that force provides to publish the costs they will charge. Everyone else gives you the price in advance...except hospitals.

    4. I was under the impression that fencing is not allowed on a front yard and that on a corner, both sides are considered "front" yards, therefore can't be fenced without a variance. Also impedes the visibility for drivers at the intersection. Am I understanding this correctly? Might be why a fence was not included in the plans and a request for a variance will have to be made?.

    5. I was a big fan of Cowards and Carrots, which I got a chance to see at the show. It's currently on Kickstarter, but the designer also put out What's He Building in There last year, which got a fair amount of buzz.
