You-review-it Monday

For me, it was a whirlwind of a weekend, especially if you start with Thursday (OK, so I’m still a college student at heart).

I started with a road trip to Louisville to catch the national tour of “Avenue Q,” found time after a Friday evening event to catch a late show at the Indianapolis International Film Festival (who’d have thought that a program called “Dirty Shorts for Clean Minds” would have a documentary called “Why We Wax” as its highlight?), attended a performance of “Victor/Victoria” at the American Cabaret Theatre and witnessed some strong talent as a judge of Meals on Wheel’s karaoke benefit at the Music Mill on Sunday (congrats to winner Julie Inskeep).

Yet there was a lot that I missed. So please tell me if you made it to the Stutz open house, checked in with Bobby McFerrin, Chick Corea and Jack DeJohnette at Clowes, joined Bernadette Peters with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra or otherwise enjoyed the arts in Indy.

I look forward to reading your thoughts.

And watch the blog later today for an announcement of the next IBJ Night at the Movies.
  • All weekend, I kept thinking about DT's comment here on 4/22 about his/her experience of Altar Boyz at the Phoenix Theatre. I went back to re-read it and found lots more from Lou to me! Thanks very much, Lou! I wrote some more there in response.

    DT, I want to add my encouragement to Brian Hartz: I hope you will give the Phoenix another chance. Without knowing you, I can't make really make recommendations, but if you usually like musicals, you may like the Phoenix' current show Black Gold. . It is not a musical, but it has a rhythmic, choreographed feeling to it, and it is very well done. It continues at the Phoenix through May 4. I.e. - one more weekend.

    I saw several shows this weekend, which I will eventually discuss on my blog. I didn't have time to read much, however, so I have no book reports this Monday.

    Lou, have a safe trip this week!

    Hope Baugh
  • I attended the Stutz open house on Friday. Had a great time and saw some great art! I didn't think it was as crowded as it has been in years past though.

    I finished E.M. Forster's A Room with a View. I was inspired to read it by watching Masterpiece Theater's version of it.

    Sunday I watched the movie, The Jane Austen Book Club. It was a decent movie. Not Oscar material, but enjoyable, especially if you love Austen as I do.

    That's it for me - I hope to see some movie from the film fest, but haven't figured out exactly which ones.
