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?

    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. The deductible is entirely paid by the POWER account. No one ever has to contribute more than $25/month into the POWER account and it is often less. The only cost not paid out of the POWER account is the ER copay ($8-25) for non-emergent use of the ER. And under HIP 2.0, if a member calls the toll-free, 24 hour nurse line, and the nurse tells them to go to the ER, the copay is waived. It's also waived if the member is admitted to the hospital. Honestly, although it is certainly not "free" - I think Indiana has created a decent plan for the currently uninsured. Also consider that if a member obtains preventive care, she can lower her monthly contribution for the next year. Non-profits may pay up to 75% of the contribution on behalf of the member, and the member's employer may pay up to 50% of the contribution.

    2. I wonder if the governor could multi-task and talk to CMS about helping Indiana get our state based exchange going so Hoosiers don't lose subsidy if the court decision holds. One option I've seen is for states to contract with healthcare.gov. Or maybe Indiana isn't really interested in healthcare insurance coverage for Hoosiers.

    3. So, how much did either of YOU contribute? HGH Thank you Mr. Ozdemir for your investments in this city and your contribution to the arts.

    4. So heres brilliant planning for you...build a $30 M sports complex with tax dollars, yet send all the hotel tax revenue to Carmel and Fishers. Westfield will unlikely never see a payback but the hotel "centers" of Carmel and Fishers will get rich. Lousy strategy Andy Cook!

    5. AlanB, this is how it works...A corporate welfare queen makes a tiny contribution to the arts and gets tons of positive media from outlets like the IBJ. In turn, they are more easily to get their 10s of millions of dollars of corporate welfare (ironically from the same people who are against welfare for humans).
