For me, the weekend included a trek to southern Indiana to ride the Wildebeest at Holiday World/Splasin' Safari. 

I also began digging into Albert Brooks' new novel "2030" and gave another listen to the LA Theatreworks' recording of "The Cherry Orchard" featuring Charles Durning, Hector Elizondo and Marsha Mason. Since seeing the Goodman Theatre's "The Seagull" and Butler University's Chekhov mash-up "Small Lives/Big Dreams," I've got a burn to see and hear more from the Russian master.

With Cate Blanchett starring in "Uncle Vanya" at the Kennedy Center in Washington this summer and Steppenwolf in Chicago offering a new Tracy Letts' adaptation of "The Three Sisters" in its upcoming season, I may get my wish.

What about you?

Did you catch the last weekend of the Phoenix Theatre's "The Zippers of Zoomerville"? Visit the new Tiger Forrest at the Indianapolis Zoo? Take the kids to the Children's Museum or Conner Prairire?

Or catch "Bridesmaids" or "Thor" at a theater near you?

Your thoughts?

  • Comedy
    Did see "Bridesmaids" yesterday. It's much too long and not particularly well-paced, but the funny parts are very funny.

    Saturday night went to the late night comedy thing at Indy Fringe and have to say that we were extremely disappointed. We had heard such good things about Phil van Hest, but this was roughly an hour of three people rambling on saying not much funny and certainly nothing enlightening. It is like no one had even prepared anything. I like to support the Fringe, and I guess you have to take the bad along with the somewhat good.

    P.S. "Super Sad True Love Story" is a fascinating, funny book.
  • Flash Mob at Indy Airport
    We experienced a surprise Flash Mob performance by the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir at the Indianapolis International Airport over Indy 500 weekend. Amazing! Only in Indy.
  • NYC Weekend
    We left town to avoid the race crowds, traffic, and noise in exchange for New York crowds, traffic and noise. Our weekend included a Billy Elliott, Anything Goes with Sutton Foster and Joel Grey, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, and the 3000th performance of Off-Broadway Naked Boys Singing. We also caught a street fair, Central Park, and the Memorial Day ceremonies on the USS Intrepid. The big surprise of the weekend was being invited to dance on stage during the second act of Priscilla.

  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.

  5. Aldi is generally a great shopping experience. Still, I'm sure YOU wouldn't want to shop there, which I consider a positive.
