You-review-it Monday

The Broad Ripple Art Fair couldn’t ask for a nicer Sunday. But that annual event is far from the only event happening this past weekend. I also caught the ISO and Indianapolis Opera joining forces on Wagner at Clowes Hall, some of the readings in the Bloomingplays series from the Bloomington Playwrights Project, Lee Lessack celebrating the music of Mercer at the Cabaret, and the opening of a new sketch comedy show from $3 Bill.

And, yes, I caught the broadcast of the “Extreme Makeover” Indianapolis edition–basically a two-hour version of the last five minutes of “It’s a Wonderful Life.” And I mean that in a good way.

Did you see any of the above? Or did you get to the IRT for the world premiere of “Interpreting William,” the final weekend of “Treasure Island” at Beef & Boards, or the IMA’s new Forefront Gallery videos?

And, on the way, did you take time out for the George Rickey sculptures downtown (see my thoughts on the latter here).

I’ll be reviewing some of the above in next week’s IBJ or in upcoming blogs. In the meantime, let us know what you thought of your weekend’s A&E activities.
