For me, it was an out-of-town weekend with D.C. exploration of the Smithsonian, the Library of Congress, the bowels of the Capitol, and a production at Arena Stage that I'll write about soon.

I also worked in a few movie screenings in anticipation of the upcoming Indiana Film Journalists Association Awards voting (which often nearly comes to blows so I need to be prepared).

What about you?

Did you get the the Monument lighting? Catch a recent release at the movies? Visit the Tawara Yusaka show at the Indianapolis Museum of Art? (I hope to go Tuesday.)

How did you experience the arts over Thanksgiving weekend?

  • Vienna Boys
    Fine concert by the Vienna Boys Choir at the Palladium. They sang a really interesting set of pieces from several cultures and historical periods. My only complaint would be that the director/piano accompanist was over-extended by doing both roles, and the timing and piano playing suffered. The singing was very fine indeed.
  • The Divine Sister
    I caught the last night of "The Divine Sister" at Theater on the Square on Mass Ave, a parody of classic nun movies and musicals.

    It wasn't high art by any means. It was ridiculous, ribald and the cast was a riot! They had the audience roaring with laughter the entire time and I enjoyed myself thoroughly.

    I'm looking forward to seeing TOTS' (PG-13) production of Debbie Does Dallas when it opens.
