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. The $104K to CRC would go toward debts service on $486M of existing debt they already have from other things outside this project. Keystone buys the bonds for 3.8M from CRC, and CRC in turn pays for the parking and site work, and some time later CRC buys them back (with interest) from the projected annual property tax revenue from the entire TIF district (est. $415K / yr. from just this property, plus more from all the other property in the TIF district), which in theory would be about a 10-year term, give-or-take. CRC is basically betting on the future, that property values will increase, driving up the tax revenue to the limit of the annual increase cap on commercial property (I think that's 3%). It should be noted that Keystone can't print money (unlike the Federal Treasury) so commercial property tax can only come from consumers, in this case the apartment renters and consumers of the goods and services offered by the ground floor retailers, and employees in the form of lower non-mandatory compensation items, such as bonuses, benefits, 401K match, etc.

  2. $3B would hurt Lilly's bottom line if there were no insurance or Indemnity Agreement, but there is no way that large an award will be upheld on appeal. What's surprising is that the trial judge refused to reduce it. She must have thought there was evidence of a flagrant, unconscionable coverup and wanted to send a message.

  3. As a self-employed individual, I always saw outrageous price increases every year in a health insurance plan with preexisting condition costs -- something most employed groups never had to worry about. With spouse, I saw ALL Indiana "free market answer" plans' premiums raise 25%-45% each year.

  4. It's not who you chose to build it's how they build it. Architects and engineers decide how and what to use to build. builders just do the work. Architects & engineers still think the tarp over the escalators out at airport will hold for third time when it snows, ice storms.
