You-review-it Monday

February 1, 2010

For me, the weekend included a trek to Cincy to see Playhouse in the Park's premiere of bestselling author Walter Mosley's "The Fall of Heaven" (based on his novel "The Tempest Tales"). I also ventured to Muncie, where Broadway star Sutton Foster was conducting master classes at Ball State...and stopped in at the closer-to-home Indianapolis Art Center for its new "Art from the Heartland" show.

More on all those in upcoming columns/blogs.

Saturday night I had the pleasure of hearing Straight No Chaser's Jerome Collins at the packed Encore Vocal Arts benefit at the Skyline Club. An impressive ad-hoc group of IU musicians--plus EVA's artistic director Chris Ludwa--provided strong musical support.

Catching all of that meant missing many more events, including Groovaloo at Clowes Hall, Peter Bogdanovich at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and the Art & Soul kick-off event at the Artsgarden.

Did you get to any of those? What else did you see, hear, read or otherwise experience this weekend?

Your thoughts?
