Some interesting stuff from the in-box:

--One of the expected highlights of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra's upcoming pops season is a celebration of the music of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg ("Les Miserables," "Miss Saigon"), with the duo here in Indy to help develop the program with maestro Jack Everly. With the announcement of the singers, however, the program looks to be even more of a must-see. Among those joining Everly and the ISO will be Stephanie J. Block (who played leads in "Wicked" and B&S's "The Pirate Queen") and Terrence Mann (Javert in B'way's "Les Miserables" and Rum Tug Tugger in "Cats").

--Also in ISO news, Earth, Wind & Fire will be playing live with the Symphony in a concert at The Lawn at White River State Park on Sept. 11.

--The Galaxy 14 will be the only theater in Indianapolis screening  "Giselle in 3D," the first 3D ballet. The one-day-only screening will take place July 12. The production was pre-recorded in St. Petersburg, Russia.

--Beef & Boards Dinner Theater is squeezing an additional show into its well-packed schedule. Running Dec. 28-Jan. 8 will be "Jack Milo's Baggy Pants Burlesque." The original show will star Doug Stark and Jeff Stockberger, along with Milo, who appeared on screen in "That Thing You Do" and the recent "Atlas Shrugged" adaptation.

  1. why oh why does this state continue to elect these people....do you wonder how much was graft out of the 3.8 billion?

  2. i too think this is a great idea. I think the vision and need is there as well. But also agree with Wendy that there may be better location in our city to fulfill this vision and help grow the sports of hockey and figure skating in Indy. Also to help further develop other parts of the city that seem often forgotten. Any of the other 6 townships out side of the three northernmost could benefit greatly from a facility and a vision like this. For a vision that sounds philanthropic, the location is appears more about the money. Would really like to see it elsewhere, but still wish the development the best of luck, as we can always use more ice in the city. As for the Ice growth when they return, if schedules can be coordinated with the Fuel, what could be better than to have high level hockey available to go see every weekend of the season? Good luck with the development and the return of the Ice.

  3. How many parking spaces do they have at Ironworks? Will residents have reserved spaces or will they have to troll for a space among the people that are there at Ruth Chris & Sangiovese?

  4. You do not get speeding ticket first time you speed and this is not first time Mr.Page has speed. One act should not define a man and this one act won't. He got off with a slap on the wrist. I agree with judge no person was injured by his actions. The state was robbed of money by paying too much rent for a building and that money could have been used for social services. The Page family maybe "generous" with their money but for most part all of it is dirty money that he obtained for sources that are not on the upright. Page is the kind of lawyer that gives lawyers a bad name. He paid off this judge like he has many other tine and walked away. Does he still have his license. I believe so. Hire him to get you confiscated drug money back. He will. It will cost you.

  5. I remain amazed at the level of expertise of the average Internet Television Executive. Obviously they have all the answers and know the business inside and out.
