What's on tap for 2011/2012 at the Indiana Repertory Theatre?

First, an a-bit-too-early-for-Halloween production of "Dracula." There are a number of stage versions of the classic out there (Bela Lugosi starred on stage as the count before committing his performance on film). This one was penned by Steven Dietz, familiar to local audiences from the IRT's recent "Becky's New Car" and "Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure" and the Phoenix's "Yankee Tavern." No word yet, but I'm guessing opening night might be a good place for a Red Cross blood drive.

Next, moving from its usual winter slot, will be the latest trio of "Going Solo" one-actor plays. Titles haven't been announced, but one will come from the pen of IRT playwright-in-residence James Still.

A near-guaranteed hit with those who book school groups, "Julius Caesar" is next (although not part of the subscription season). For those who enjoy comparing and contrasting, note that this will be the second local professional "Caesar," with Heartland Actors Repertory Theatre staging its own this summer in White River State Park. The IRT's, though, will be a compact 90 minutes.

Of course, "A Christmas Carol" returns in November and December. After that comes August Wilson's final play, "Radio Golf," the completion of his cycle of plays each set in a different decade of the 20th century. After that, the IRT offers Noel Coward's "Fallen Angels."

Then comes one of the hottest plays on the regional theater circuit, Yasmina Reza's popular "God of Carnage" (the Chicago production recently was extended). The Tony-winning Best Play opens in late February. Then the season wraps with William Gibson's "The Miracle Worker."

Your thoughts?

  • Interesting season
    I'm especially looking forward to God of Carnage. I read the NY Times review last year and their followup stories. It sounds like a fascinating play.

  1. Of what value is selling alcoholic beverages to State Fair patrons when there are many families with children attending. Is this the message we want to give children attending and participating in the Fair, another venue with alooholic consumption onsite. Is this to promote beer and wine production in the state which are great for the breweries and wineries, but where does this end up 10-15 years from now, lots more drinkers for the alcoholic contents. If these drinks are so important, why not remove the alcohol content and the flavor and drink itself similar to soft drinks would be the novelty, not the alcoholic content and its affects on the drinker. There is no social or material benefit from drinking alcoholic beverages, mostly people want to get slightly or highly drunk.

  2. I did;nt know anyone in Indiana could count- WHY did they NOT SAY just HOW this would be enforced? Because it WON;T! NOW- with that said- BIG BROTHER is ALIVE in this Article-why take any comment if it won't appease YOU PEOPLE- that's NOT American- with EVERYTHING you indicated is NOT said-I can see WHY it say's o Comments- YOU are COMMIES- BIG BROTHER and most likely- voted for Obama!

  3. In Europe there are schools for hairdressing but you don't get a license afterwards but you are required to assist in turkey and Italy its 7 years in japan it's 10 years England 2 so these people who assist know how to do hair their not just anybody and if your an owner and you hire someone with no experience then ur an idiot I've known stylist from different countries with no license but they are professional clean and safe they have no license but they have experience a license doesn't mean anything look at all the bad hairdressers in the world that have fried peoples hair okay but they have a license doesn't make them a professional at their job I think they should get rid of it because stateboard robs stylist and owners and they fine you for the dumbest f***ing things oh ur license isn't displayed 100$ oh ur wearing open toe shoes fine, oh there's ONE HAIR IN UR BRUSH that's a fine it's like really? So I think they need to go or ease up on their regulations because their too strict

  4. Exciting times in Carmel.

  5. Twenty years ago when we moved to Indy I was a stay at home mom and knew not very many people.WIBC was my family and friends for the most part. It was informative, civil, and humerous with Dave the KING. Terri, Jeff, Stever, Big Joe, Matt, Pat and Crumie. I loved them all, and they seemed to love each other. I didn't mind Greg Garrison, but I was not a Rush fan. NOW I can't stand Chicks and all their giggly opinions. Tony Katz is to abrasive that early in the morning(or really any time). I will tune in on Saturday morning for the usual fun and priceless information from Pat and Crumie, mornings it will be 90.1
