IndyFringe Sweeps Audiences Off Their Feet with Impressionism

I’ve been to the IndyFringe Basile Theater twice now, and both times I leave thinking “I need to come here more often.” So here’s my newest 2016 resolution to see more shows at this theater.

Both performances have been directed by the lovely Amy Hayes, and both have been incredibly touching, emotionally raw, and heart-warmingly funny. The one currently playing is Impressionism, and tells the story of two characters, Thomas and Katherine, working side-by-side in an art gallery, hiding from a world that has shattered them.

We loved heading to the Indy Winter Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings, we loved playing intramural soccer with Circle City Athletics, we loved grabbing a drink at the Libertine, we loved running along the canal. Fast forward to today. Those things are all still here, and we still love them and the community that surrounds them. But as Kate Hudson once said in How To Lose a Guy In 10 Days, “I love you Binky, but I don’t have to like you right now.

We don’t like what’s happening in our state and our city. This isn’t our Indianapolis.
