Dec. 4-23
Hilbert Circle Theatre

Maureen McGovern, the hostess of this year’s “Yuletide Celebration,” is no stranger to Hilbert Circle Theatre, having joined the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra there earlier in the season for a pops concert.

Best known for her pop hits “The Morning After,” “We May Never Love Like This Again,” and “Can You Read My Mind” (featured in, respectively, “The Poseidon Adventure,” “The Towering Inferno,” and “Superman,”) McGovern evolved into a well-respected cabaret artist with a string of Great-American-Songbook recordings, high-profile nightclub gigs and Broadway appearances. 

Like Santa’s pouch, “Yuletide Celebration” is always a very mixed bag. Joining McGovern in this annual mix of the sacred and the playful will be a Liberace impersonator, a dog act, and the Yuletide debut of the ISO’s new Wurlitzer pipe organ. Details here.

  1. PJ - Mall operators like Simon, and most developers/ land owners, establish individual legal entities for each property to avoid having a problem location sink the ship, or simply structure the note to exclude anything but the property acting as collateral. Usually both. The big banks that lend are big boys that know the risks and aren't mad at Simon for forking over the deed and walking away.

  2. Do any of the East side residence think that Macy, JC Penny's and the other national tenants would have letft the mall if they were making money?? I have read several post about how Simon neglected the property but it sounds like the Eastsiders stopped shopping at the mall even when it was full with all of the national retailers that you want to come back to the mall. I used to work at the Dick's at Washington Square and I know for a fact it's the worst performing Dick's in the Indianapolis market. You better start shopping there before it closes also.

  3. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  4. If you only knew....

  5. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.
