You-review-it Monday

For me, it started with an early Friday visit to the ISO and the faux-Beatles at Hilbert Circle Theatre and a stop in at UA Circle Centre to catch "Aliens in the Attic" in preperation for a guest host house on WFYI's "Film Soceyology" radio show.

It continued with an oddly underpopulated but hugely rewarding appearance by John Leguizamo at the IRT (sorry you missed it), and a rain-sprinkled "Much Ado About Nothing" at White River State Park (at which I hosted the Saturday pre-show). I also found enough reading time to finish Earl J. Hess and Pratibha A. Dabholkar's "Singin' in the Rain: The Making of an American Masterpiece."

I hope to talk about Leguizamo and Heartland Actors Repertory Theatre's "Much Ado" in an upcoming column or blog. As to the latter, it's the rare film book I've found that pays close attention to the detailed work of creating dance. It also carefully (if sometimes repetitively) gives a clear idea where each member of the creative team was in their career when the film was made--and how that place influenced their work. Insightful and worth reading for movie buffs.

So tell us about your A&E experiences this past weekend?

  • I witnessed my first Shakespearean play on Friday night and found it to be a very rewarding expereince, not only for me but for my high school aged kids as well. With the exception of some minor recurring microphone issues, the play went off without a hitch

  1. Can your dog sign a marriage license or personally state that he wishes to join you in a legal union? If not then no, you cannot marry him. When you teach him to read, write, and speak a discernible language, then maybe you'll have a reasonable argument. Thanks for playing!

  2. Look no further than Mike Rowe, the former host of dirty jobs, who was also a classically trained singer.

  3. Current law states income taxes are paid to the county of residence not county of income source. The most likely scenario would be some alteration of the income tax distribution formula so money earned in Marion co. would go to Marion Co by residents of other counties would partially be distributed to Marion co. as opposed to now where the entirety is held by the resident's county.

  4. This is more same-old, same-old from a new generation of non-progressive 'progressives and fear mongers. One only needs to look at the economic havoc being experienced in California to understand the effect of drought on economies and people's lives. The same mindset in California turned a blind eye to the growth of population and water needs in California, defeating proposal after proposal to build reservoirs, improve water storage and delivery infrastructure...and the price now being paid for putting the demands of a raucous minority ahead of the needs of many. Some people never, never learn..

  5. I wonder if I can marry him too? Considering we are both males, wouldn't that be a same sex marriage as well? If they don't honor it, I'll scream discrimination just like all these people have....
