Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

January 12-14: Be the first kid on your block to see David Hoppe's "After Paul McCartney"

David Hoppe's long-anticipated play "After Paul McCartney" opens at Butler University

When: Friday through Sunday, January 12, 13, 14
Where: Butler Theatre 328 in Lilly Hall

Most of us know David Hoppe from his excellent columns in NUVO. More than any other local writer, David tackles the really big issues of the day: local and national government performance (and malfeasance), public art and civic responsibility. More than some of his more self-revelatory NUVO colleagues, readers don't often see the intimate or personal side of Hoppe in his columns. His play "After Paul McCartney" could change that. It's a very touching picture of male friendship, often a tough subject for guys to handle. David has been showing working versions of the play, they have all been very well received. "After Paul McCartney" is a work with several incarnations, including an adaptation into a cycle of poems. You can read a section of a prose version here. I am looking forward to seeing the play. (The engagement of backstage star Rob Koharchik is a sign that it will be splendidly staged.) Tickets are $10 at the door.

If you are intrigued by local theatre, you should attend the talk with veteran actor Robert Neal March 7.
