Yes, I know, the Colts have some sort of game going on. But if you aren’t inclined to watch the playoffs, consider a road trip to Muncie, where something rare (for Indiana) is happening. A major new musical is being presented in its developmental stage. The property in question is “The Fisher King,” which you may remember from the Terry Gilliam film that starred Robin Williams and Jeff Bridges. The musical version has been workshopped in New York and now is getting a staged reading from the talent pool at Ball State so that its creators, who will be on hand, can assess what works and what doesn’t. You can, too. More details here.
