As the conversation continued on the Palladium's announced schedule (see blog here) and while I caught up on last week's ticket giveaways (sorry, all passes are gone), I was late in getting to this week's You-review-it post.

So I'm asking you to dig back deep in your memory banks and share what you saw, heard or otherwise experienced last weekend.

Were you in the crowd with me at Indianapolis Opera's "The Mikado" or the Phoenix Theatre's "In the Next Room or The Vibrator Play"? Did you attend some Heartland Film Festival flicks--or get to the gala? Catch the Warhol show at the IMA or Dance Kaleidoscope at the IRT? (You can find my thoughts on those shows here).

Your thoughts?

  • Heartland
    Okay, how did it take me SO LONG to jump on the film festival bandwagon? What a great weekend. Sold-out screening of Come Together on Saturday afternoon where I realized I probably know more lyrics to Beatles songs than I ever imagined. Then Sunday, Freedom Riders and the unexpected honor of having one of CORE's original freedom riders, Geneveve Hughes Houghton, speak to the audience. Already working on weekend plans to see as many more movies as possible.
  • Heartland rocks
    I camped out at the theatre and saw 7 movies this weekend. I loved "Thundersoul" and "Mister Rogers and Me." Also enjoyed "Wasteland" and even thought that "Bouncing Cats" was pretty good. It made me realize how incredibly fortunate we are to live in this country and just how rich each one of us is. To live where we have electricity and running water and clothes to wear is a blessing we all take for granted. I'll be seeing three more films this evening --- what a great way to spend a week!
  • only one show this time
    There were, no exaggeration, more than 15 performance art shows that I wanted to see last weekend here in Indy. Even if I hadn't had to work most of the weekend at my day job, I wouldn't have been able to see everything, so I just let go of wanting.

    I did, however, get to see the Sunday afternoon performance of "Dead Man's Cell Phone" at the Carmel Community Playhouse (a Carmel Community Players production) and enjoyed it very much. I'll write more about it soon on my own blog.

  • Tuesday night
    Since this week is a little odd anyway, I'll go ahead and mention what I saw last night (Tuesday) rather than wait until next Monday:

    I saw "White Christmas" at Beef and Boards Dinner Theatre. The show is based on the 1954 movie and enough like it to be satisfying, but with the unique pleasures of live singing, dancing, and other theatrical spectacle.

    I wasn't sure how I would enjoy seeing a "Christmas show" before I've even shopped for Halloween candy, but it is really a story about love, loyalty, and nostalgia.

    In other words, enjoyable any time of year.

    And it is only scheduled to run through just before Thanksgiving, so if it interests you, you should (pardon the expression) carve out the time soon.

    I'll write more about it on my own blog eventually. I know, I know: I am now three reviews behind. Too bad I can't whip out my reviews on my lunch break the way I seem to be able to whip out these comments on Lou's blog! Sigh....

  • Jamaa at Heartland Film Festival
    Absolutely loved Jamaa, which was part of the Shorts Collection #2 at Castleton Square. Like 'Mary' commented above, I am also new to the film festival and regret not participating sooner.

  5. Problem: most of the people responding to this article don't know about this service AT ALL! Why? Lack of awareness. This isn't IndyGo. This is CIRTA: might as well be the mattress company because they are asleep at the wheel - something like 3 directors over the last year? Playing with federal grant money is great! This "region" wants commuter rail service, has spent MILLIONS on Transportation studies yet can't even support a commuter bus line? This is largely for suburban riders to get to downtown - not for "service people to work in our hotels and restaurants" ! Get your head out of your backside!! These are professionals, students etc. that don't want to fight traffic, save some money on parking, gas, stress.... if CIRTA would put their federal money into widely promoting the sevive to Greenwood, Fishers & Carmel instead of finding directors and studies - this would be a successful service. Our family uses(d) it daily for the last several years - but the recent uncertainty & now unreliability due to cuts from Carmel has been a problem. Now, costs us an additional $350/month for gas & parking ( $4200/year) plus vehicle wear, service, environmental impact ... YES - this REGION needs this this type of service in order to keep growing and getting the people it needs to fill skilled positions in downtown Indianapolis. Think outside of your own car !!!
