Sunday In The Park On A Wednesday

By |October 31st, 2016|

I’d be ill-equipped to share a proper review of a very special presentation of this beloved modern theater favorite featuring a star-studded cast, but I’m sure as hell going to tell everyone I had the good luck to see it! So forgive me if I […]

Oh How I Wish We Could Keep Shuffling Along

By |June 27th, 2016|

When I heard the news that the Broadway tour-de-force, Shuffle Along, was set to close on July 24th — a full 2 months earlier than its original closing date in September — I, along with so many others, immediately shouted “Why!?” How can such a work […]

#TonysSoDiverse … And They Were … But

By |June 13th, 2016|

Although yesterday’s news headlines were dominated by tragedy, I’m happy to inject a little bit of light, beauty and art into the ether and share my respect and appreciation for the darn-near flawless awards ceremony that was the 70th Annual Tony Awards that took place […]

She Loves Me … Times Two

By |May 2nd, 2016|

I originally treated myself to the Roundabout Theatre’s production of She Loves Me on my birthday back in March, but a weird twist of fate (along with my greedy need to see if I can win tickets through TodayTix) gave me a second opportunity to […]

Now That Was A Thing!

By |April 15th, 2016|

March has come and gone, and April is about half over, yet somehow I feel like I’m still recuperating from my birthday month-long arts & culture extravaganza. “Extravaganza” may seem a bit strong of a word, but trust me, anything less would not do.

As I […]

That One Time I Met A Living Legend

By |October 7th, 2014|

It’s not every week you get to gaze upon a living legend of the stage and screen in the American Midwest. Sure, Chicago sees its fair share of theater kings and grand dames of the Great White Way, but it never has the same sharp, […]

How Fast Summertime Flies! – Art in August

By |September 5th, 2014|

I have no idea where the month of August went! To be fair, I have no idea where the first week of September went either. Ha!

Like so many trying to get the most out of summer after a particularly harsh winter, it was difficult balancing […]

For the Love of Fringe: The 2011 IndyFringe Festival

By |August 30th, 2011|

The 2011 IndyFringe festival wrapped up its seventh year this past Sunday night. And even though this was only my second year enjoying the theatre extravaganza in Indianapolis’ own mini-arts district, it felt even more inclusive and representative of the theater spirit than my first […]

Pour Yourself a Cup of Ambition – 9 to 5: The Musical

By |January 14th, 2011|

The seven inches of freshly fallen snow didn’t deter theater geeks like myself from venturing out on Wednesday for a night of theat-ah at Indianapolis’ Clowes Memorial Hall. I had the pleasure of taking in the delightfully entertaining National Tour of the revenge comedy that […]
