"Pure Prine," the outstanding musical developed by Bryan Fonseca from the music of John Prine, will have an afterlife beyond its two Phoenix Theatre productions here in Indy.

This weekend, the show will play Madison, IN, at the Cultural Continuum at the former Fry Trading Company building. Original cast Tim Brickley, Tim Grimm, Jenni Gregory, Bobbie Lancaster, Jan Lucas and Michael Shelton will be taking the road trip. Details--and a look at the new poster--here. For my review of the Phoenix production, click here.

In other Phoenix news, it looks like both of the theater's performance spaces will be used for the 2011 Indy Fringe festival (last year, it was just the underground). The Phoenix main stage will be replacing the Marian Underground as the sixth Fringe venue. 

The anything-can-happen summer event is now taking applications from performance groups. Details here.

  • 2nd try, double yay!
    I could have sworn I left a comment here yesterday, but I was pretty tired, so maybe I clicked on "X" instead of "submit" or something.

    Anyway, I loved "Pure Prine," too, and am delighted to hear that it is now touring a bit. Yay!

    And how WONDERFUL that the Phoenix is offering both of its stages for the 2011 Indy Fringe festival! That will be so great - for both performers and audience members! Yay, again!

  1. You are correct that Obamacare requires health insurance policies to include richer benefits and protects patients who get sick. That's what I was getting at when I wrote above, "That’s because Obamacare required insurers to take all customers, regardless of their health status, and also established a floor on how skimpy the benefits paid for by health plans could be." I think it's vital to know exactly how much the essential health benefits are costing over previous policies. Unless we know the cost of the law, we can't do a cost-benefit analysis. Taxes were raised in order to offset a 31% rise in health insurance premiums, an increase that paid for richer benefits. Are those richer benefits worth that much or not? That's the question we need to answer. This study at least gets us started on doing so.

  2. *5 employees per floor. Either way its ridiculous.

  3. Jim, thanks for always ready my stuff and providing thoughtful comments. I am sure that someone more familiar with research design and methods could take issue with Kowalski's study. I thought it was of considerable value, however, because so far we have been crediting Obamacare for all the gains in coverage and all price increases, neither of which is entirely fair. This is at least a rigorous attempt to sort things out. Maybe a quixotic attempt, but it's one of the first ones I've seen try to do it in a sophisticated way.

  4. In addition to rewriting history, the paper (or at least your summary of it) ignores that Obamacare policies now must provide "essential health benefits". Maybe Mr Wall has always been insured in a group plan but even group plans had holes you could drive a truck through, like the Colts defensive line last night. Individual plans were even worse. So, when you come up with a study that factors that in, let me know, otherwise the numbers are garbage.

  5. You guys are absolutely right: Cummins should build a massive 80-story high rise, and give each employee 5 floors. Or, I suppose they could always rent out the top floors if they wanted, since downtown office space is bursting at the seams (http://www.ibj.com/article?articleId=49481).
