A good re-interpretation can be indistinguishable from the real thing, which is why Method actors are no longer allowed to play dictators. Take in a safer form of creativity with this GrouponLive deal to see The Pink Floyd Experience at the Murat Theatre at Old National Centre on Friday, February 22, at 8 p.m. For $20, you get one G-Pass for seating in rows GG–RR of the main floor or rows W–DD of the balcony (up to a $41.50 value, including all fees). Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.<p>
The senses are filled with aural and visual excess as The Pink Floyd Experience recreates the sonic mind expansion and visceral enlightenment of a real Pink Floyd show. The band of highly trained virtuosos does justice to its subject like a jury of smitten rock critics, nailing every note and nuance of Pink Floyd’s signature sound as they soar through their greatest hits and remarkable rarities.<p>
While dazzling ears with the sinister cash register ringing of “Money” and the crystalline chimes of “Time,” The Pink Floyd Experience floods retinas with immersive visuals. The spectacle is replete with metamorphic lasers and lighting, avant-garde screen projections, and an anti-gravitation pink pig, giving fans the closest thing to seeing a Pink Floyd show without being miniaturized and injected into their uncle’s subconscious. A gilded proscenium arch and red velvet valance tower over the Murat Theatre’s Edwardian-era stage, adding a sense of trans-historical trippiness to the proceedings.<p>

####Murat Theatre at Old National Centre Past the glimmering main lobby, past the Middle Eastern accents and hand-carved murals of the Egyptian Room, past the Victorian splendor of the Corinthian Hall, Old National Centre’s Murat Theatre continues the venue’s brand of elegance. Therein, row upon row of red-upholstered seats face a proscenium-style stage that entertains crowds with Broadway shows and musical acts. Overhead, the soft warmth of a chandelier ringed by a floral mural offsets the brilliance of the stage lighting and the performers’ flashlight-juggling routines. Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
Old National Centre
Old National Centre was originally built in 1909 as the Murat Shrine, which housed Indianapolis’s growing population of Freemasons. The building has since been restored and has become an eye-catching display of diverse architectural influences. Outside of the venue, spindly towers topped with light-blue domes rise above the street, beckoning passersby to enter the theater and enjoy a show. The classic, opulent Grand Lobby opens up to a wealth of concert venues, exhibition halls, and ballrooms that astound visitors with Middle Eastern and Victorian designs.
