'Drowsy Chaperone' Leaves Audience Anything But

Billed as “a musical within a comedy,” the Buck Creek Players’ production of The Drowsy Chaperone lives up to that by drolly inserting a 1920s songbook and cast into a modern-day setting. Or vice versa. Or, wait—what just happened? In a good way.

Pick of the Litter: Pet Pride 2012

It was a downtown romp last night as dozens of dogs, cats, and even one ferret descended upon a parking lot at 707 N. Senate Ave. Indy Pride’s second-annual Pet Pride event drew more than 500 (human) attendees, up from about 320 last year in its first inception.

Preview: Indy Zoo's New Exotic Birds Exhibit

The eagerness of brilliantly hued lorikeets as they stretch their necks to reach nectar. Long, curly eyelashes that lend a touch of flirtatiousness to the otherwise formidable southern ground hornbill, a 13-pound meat-eater that uses its enormous beak to skewer prey.

The Theban Trilogy at the IMA

Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to see No Exit’s wonderfully unconventional Antigone on the grounds of the IMA. And as powerful as the Sophocles play was, I couldn’t help but feel as if I had walked into a movie an hour late. Having not seen the prequels Oedipus Rex and Oedipus at Colonus, performed earlier this month, I had to pick up elements of the backstory not remembered from college on the fly. Lucky for you, No Exit will stage all three plays on May 31, June 1, and June 2.

What I Know: Tasha Jones

Life on the road isn’t glamorous, unless your idea of glamour is waking at 4 a.m. to practice your performance, dressing your kids at 6, writing until lunch, making phone calls all afternoon, then picking the kids up, cooking dinner, and sleeping for five hours.

Beauty and the Beast Comes Up Roses at Clowes Hall

A well-worn “tale as old as time” brought all of its truisms and talents to the Clowes Memorial Hall stage on Tuesday night. It was opening night for the NETworks production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, which yet runs Oct. 13 through 16 here. This latest nationally-touring take on the show jump-starts both the Broadway in Indianapolis 2011-12 season and the source material itself.

Fairytale Beginning: Hoosier Emily Behny Stars in Broadway Tour

As a Ball State musical-theater grad, Emily Behny was prepared for drama—and she got plenty of it last fall when she auditioned for the lead in the Broadway touring production of Beauty and the Beast. At the conclusion of one callback in New York City, where Behny was living, she was asked to return the next day and sing for a musical director. She already had plans: She was getting married. In a rather Disney-esque sequence of events, Behny spent the evening waiting tables, went out for her bachelorette party, made the 10 a.m. audition for the part of Belle, and dashed off to her afternoon nuptials at City Hall. When she and her Prince Charming returned from their honeymoon, she learned she had landed the role. “I heard the good news from my agent on the tarmac,” Behny says.
