You have to love an Indianapolis weekend when it's impossible to get to everything you want to see.

While I caught Allalike Productions' "bare," Theatre on the Square's remarkable "A Very Merry Unauthorized Children's Scientology Pageant," ShadowApe's "Transformations" and ACT's young adult production of "The Wiz," there were still plenty of concerts and theater productions to be had.  Heck, I still haven't gotten to see Batman's latest adventure on the big screen.

So what did you get to this weekend? I look forward to reading your thoughts.

Oh, and if you missed it in the print edition of IBJ, visit www.ibj.com/arts for my thoughts on Chakaia Booker's art and L.A. Theatre Works' plays on tape.

  • Lou- I think I sat near you at the Theatre on the Square the other night. Glad you liked the show. If you are interested in posting pictures let me know, I can email you some from Dress Rehearsals.
    It is a great show and remarkable what the kids can do. It is their show!
  • I went on a tour at Crown Hill Cemetery. The tour guide had done his research; it was very informative and fun. I'm looking forward to going on another tour.
  • My wife and I went to Symphony on the Prairie. We're usually very happy with it, but Friday's James Bond night was very disappointing.
    The selections were just o.k., and the vocalist seemed like a very bad Las Vegas lounge singer.
    It was too bad. The last couple of ones we attended had been very good.
  • My brother and I went to the Indianapolis Museum of Art's Summer Screening of The Big Lebowski and it was a lot of fun. We were already big fans of the movie, but it was an added bonus to be surrounded by true fans and new fans. People were cheering after the iconic lines and there were even a bunch of people in costumes. (I, myself, wore my robe in honor of The Dude.)

    This movie has such a cult status that there is even a Lebowski fest (http://lebowskifest.com/). I have never been to it, but this screening felt like Indianapolis's version of that.
