Palladium gala strengthens

On the day that season tickets go on sale for its premiere half-season lineup (a schedule that includes dancer Savion Glover, the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra and more), the Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel also announced two additions to the gala that will anchor its opening week of activity.

The January 29 concert, which already had Neil Sedaka, Chris Botti, the Carmel Symphony Orchestra, and Michael Feinstein on the lineup, will also include Dionne Warwick and Cheyenne Jackson.

The former is no doubt familiar to you for her run of '60s hits including "I'll Never Fall in Love Again" and "Walk on By"--if not from her embarrassing stint as a spokesperson for the Psychic Friends Network.

Jackson, who recently recorded an album with Feinstein, was the star of recent Broadway shows as "All Shook Up," "Xanadu," and the revival of "Finian's Rainbow." More info on the opening week gala here.

Sound interesting?


  • Cheyenne Jackson
    Cheyenne may be new to Indianapolis audiences, but I've been a fan of his since back when he was still doing regional theater in Seattle. To be perfectly honest, Cheyenne is the only person in the Gala line-up I have any real interest in seeing, but at $1000 for the whole gala or $200 for show-only tickets, I'm afraid I'm going to miss it.
  • Woo Hoo!
    Dionne Warwick of the Psychic Friends Network? When will they bring in the Lawrence Welk Reunion Revue?

    And here I thought they'd give Clowes a run for the money. Yikes, highly underwhelming. Sure, the Palladium ups the ante for the performing arts in central Indiana, but not by much. The bill of fare is much more interesting and diverse at Clowes, the Murat, Circle Theatre, and IU's Auditorium. Hmmm, on that point, the Palladium sounds well-suited for Carmel (sorry for the obvious but all too easy slam.) Much like the hall's architecture, the opening series is hardly cutting edge -- it's more classic comfort, like a good meatloaf. Here's hoping they at least got the acoustics right, they sure have paid plenty and hyped mightily over this HamCo hall in the cornfields. Maybe that might be worth the drive.

    The prices are an insult to patrons of the arts. The lineup leaves me speechless!

  4. The question is, where could they build a new stadium? It seems in the past year, all the prime spots have been spoken for with potential projects. Maybe in the industrial wasteland area a block past Lucas Oil? I think it needs to be close to the core, if a new stadium is built.
