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. I had read earlier this spring that Noodles & Co was going to open in the Fishers Marketplace (which is SR 37 and 131st St, not 141st St, just FYI). Any word on that? Also, do you happen to know what is being built in Carmel at Pennsylvania and Old Meridian? May just be an office building but I'm not sure.

    2. I'm sorry, but you are flat out wrong. There are few tracks in the world with the history of IMS and probably NO OTHER as widely known and recognized. I don't care what you think about the stat of Indy Car racing, these are pretty hard things to dispute.

    3. Also wondering if there is an update on the Brockway Pub-Danny Boy restaurant/taproom that was planned for the village as well?

    4. Why does the majority get to trample on the rights of the minority? You do realize that banning gay marriage does not rid the world of gay people, right? They are still going to be around and they are still going to continue to exist. The best way to get it all out of the spotlight? LEGALIZE IT! If gay marriage is legal, they will get to stop trying to push for it and you will get to stop seeing it all over the news. Why do Christians get to decide what is moral?? Why do you get to push your religion on others? How would legalizing gay marriage expose their lifestyle to your children? By the way, their lifestyle is going to continue whether gay marriage is legalized or not. It's been legal in Canada for quite a while now and they seem to be doing just fine. What about actual rules handed down by God? What about not working on Sundays? What about obeying your parents? What about adultery? These are in the 10 Commandments, the most important of God's rules. Yet they are all perfectly legal. What about divorce? Only God is allowed to dissolve a marriage so why don't you work hard to get divorce banned? Why do you get to pick and choose the parts of the Bible you care about?

    5. Look at the bright side. With the new Lowe's call center, that means 1000 jobs at $10 bucks an hour. IMS has to be drooling over all that disposable income. If those employees can save all their extra money after bills, in five years they can go to the race LIVE. Can you say attendance boost?
