The first summer season for Carmel's Center for the Performing Arts brings seven shows (in addition to the already sold out k.d. lang gig).

The schedule announced May 25 (with tickets on sale the 26th) includes some high-profile acts who have played other venues in the area in the past. But it also includes the first local shot by comic Martin Short, the comedic actor who has transitioned into legit theater in such stage efforts as "The Goodbye Girl," "Little Me," and his own Broadway show.

The full schedule:

Indigo Girls, July 10

Emmylou Harris, July 13

Boz Scaggs and Michael McDonald, July 17

Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo, July 27

Lyle Lovett and His Large Band, Aug. 20

Martin Short, August 27

Ticket prices have yet to be announced.

  • Summer schedule
    Yet another venue with a fantastic summer schedule pulling on our summer entertainment dollars! I am so happy to be living in central Indiana, where there are so many options to see such a diversity of entertainers. I'm asking for Boz Scaggs/Michael McDonald tix for my birthday!
  • More than pop
    Decent, maybe even good. Emmylou and Lyle are definitely authentic and revered (lyle played Indy with John Hiatt a few months ago...amazing), Indigo Girls are wonderful live (their typical crowd will liven up downtown Carmel too). McDonald and Scaggs could be an interesting pairing, depending on what they play, Mc Donald is completely gray and shrinking daily, but his voice seems to be wholly intact, and Scaggs has lately returned to blues and R&B ...they were a key part of Don Fagen's New York Rock and Soul review many years ago. Pat Benatar and Neil Geraldo? Geraldo is a much underappreciated guitarist, but the music is just...not on a par with the other artists mentioned here, to put it kindly. Tough to quibble too much with the summer season...mostly winners or potential winners...as for Martin Short, he clearly did not translate to film as well as some of the other SNL alumni...but he was clearly as talented as the best of them...perhaps he has found a niche on the live stage that suits his own set of skills better than film. I am sure that will be a good night as well. A better effort by the Palladium than Charlie Daniels and the Wright Brothers, for sure...
  • Pricing
    I purchased tix to McDonald / Scaggs in thr orchestra for $60 each. Debating on Martin Short...
  • Is Martin Short appropriate?
    Hi-
    I have two teenage aged children and want to take my family to the Martin Short show. I am debating whether or not it will be appropriate for the kids. Please let me know what you think or if you have seen it. Thanks!

  1. PJ - Mall operators like Simon, and most developers/ land owners, establish individual legal entities for each property to avoid having a problem location sink the ship, or simply structure the note to exclude anything but the property acting as collateral. Usually both. The big banks that lend are big boys that know the risks and aren't mad at Simon for forking over the deed and walking away.

  2. Do any of the East side residence think that Macy, JC Penny's and the other national tenants would have letft the mall if they were making money?? I have read several post about how Simon neglected the property but it sounds like the Eastsiders stopped shopping at the mall even when it was full with all of the national retailers that you want to come back to the mall. I used to work at the Dick's at Washington Square and I know for a fact it's the worst performing Dick's in the Indianapolis market. You better start shopping there before it closes also.

  3. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  4. If you only knew....

  5. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.
