Flying family defies gravity

·

Members of the Bloomington High Flyers fold and contort as they stack themselves three-deep on top of one another to create a grotesquely beautiful human pyramid. New age music crackles out of a chalk-coated stereo, providing a complement to the superhuman strength required to defy gravity and every other law of nature.

Anyone for some Candy?

·

Listen to the buzz around town lately and you will hear local arts lovers and Bloomington Playwrights Project patrons proclaiming "We Want Candy!"

·

David Copperfield will be appearing -- and disappearing -- this evening at the IU Auditorium. The world-renowned entertainer will bring his newest act, "PORTAL," for shows at 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. In this act, Copperfield selects members of the audience and leaves viewers wondering where they are going. The show can get cut short for some of the audience members, because they will not have time to get back from Timbuktu.

IU grad plays lead role in Indianapolis

·

"The musical is very exciting, and we've wanted to do it for a long time," said Ulrike Steinert, the director of marketing at the Indianapolis Civic Theatre.

IU music students \'go for Baroque\'

·

A woman with a slight frame and striking similarity to the host of "Trading Spaces" stands at the center stage of Auer Hall, surrounded by a semi-circle of students playing odd-looking instruments. She clasps and unclasps her hands while their musical notes slide and poke at the space around her, about to signal her to start singing. When her cue arrives, she unleashes a handsome, mellifluous voice for a song that demands an impressive vocal range.

McCartney fans buy his love in new U.S. tour

·

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Paul McCartney has nothing left to prove. He's a Beatle. He's a knight. He's an honorary American. He's been everywhere, done everything. But in Oakland Monday night, he showed up simply "to rock and roll." And after a two-and-a-half-hour-long feast for the eyes and ears, McCartney had done his job. He left a sell-out crowd of 15,000 satisfied.
