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 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 ( I have never been to it, but this screening felt like Indianapolis's version of that.

  1. I am a Lyft driver who is a licensed CDL professional driver. ALL Lyft drivers take pride in providing quality service to the Indianapolis and surrounding areas, and we take the safety of our passengers and the public seriously.(passengers are required to put seat belts on when they get in our cars) We do go through background checks, driving records are checked as are the personal cars we drive, (these are OUR private cars we use) Unlike taxi cabs and their drivers Lyft (and yes Uber) provide passengers with a clean car inside and out, a friendly and courteous driver, and who is dressed appropriately and is groomed appropriately. I go so far as to offer mints, candy and/or small bottle of water to the my customers. It's a mutual respect between driver and passenger. With Best Regards

  3. In the first sentance "As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss are build quality & price." need a way to edit

  4. As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss is build quality & price. First none of these places is worth $1100 for a one bedroom. Downtown Carmel or Keystone at the Crossing in Indy. It doesn't matter. All require you to get in your car to get just about anywhere you need to go. I'm in one of the Carmel apartments now where after just 2.5 short years one of the kitchen cabinet doors is crooked and lawn and property maintenance seems to be lacking my old Indianapolis apartment which cost $300 less. This is one of the new star apartments. As they keep building throughout the area "deals" will start popping up creating shoppers. If your property is falling apart after year 3 what will it look like after year 5 or 10??? Why would one stay here if they could move to a new Broad Ripple in 2 to 3 years or another part of the Far Northside?? The complexes aren't going to let the "poor" move in without local permission so that's not that problem, but it the occupancy rate drops suddenly because the "Young" people moved back to Indy then look out.

  5. Why are you so concerned about Ace hardware? I don't understand why anyone goes there! Every time ive gone in the past, they don't have what I need and I end up going to the big box stores. I understand the service aspect and that they try to be helpful but if they are going to survive I think they might need to carry more specialty parts.
