Lightwire: The Show
The tallest bird most people have seen is the aptly named Big Bird, who measures a little over eight feet. But in Lightwire Theater’s new production, birds the size of two-story houses traverse the stage alongside sword-fighting cats and aliens outfitted with the teeth of prehistoric tigers. It’s all part of a family-friendly battle between good and evil, set to a live soundtrack and illuminated by electroluminescent wire rather than stage lights powered by Shakespearean soliloquies. The project was imagined by Ian Carney and Corbin Popp, who—along with their wives Eleanor and Whitney—constructed the glowing characters. Fresh off an appearance on America’s Got Talent, they’re also behind the lauded DiNO-Light and The Ugly Duckling, two shows they’ve transported to theaters around the globe.
Clowes Memorial Hall
For the late Dr. George Henry Alexander Clowes, the most important things in life were science and the arts. The good doctor wanted to share this devotion with the Indianapolis community, so he devised and funded Clowes Memorial Hall at Butler University. Completed in 1963, the hall shares Butler's gorgeous aesthetic with its arching stone façade and lush crimson interior, which has room for over 2,000 patrons. In addition to major touring productions and public speakers, Clowes Memorial Hall is also the home of the Indianapolis Opera, the Butler Ballet, and the Indy 500.
