Hidden Gems: The INDY’s Fall Guide to Arts & Culture

We hardly need to tell you to go see the Broadway smash Fun Home when it comes to DPAC this fall—but we will anyway, just briefly (see our stage picks, starting on p. 25). Still, for our annual Fall Guide to arts and culture, we didn't want to waste a lot of our ink and a lot of your time telling you at length about shows that speak for themselves and that you've probably already been looking forward to for months.

That's why we decided to arrange this guide around the concept of "Hidden Gems." In each area that we cover—music, food, art, stage, page, and screen—our editors and writers put together a nice, round list of ten to twenty picks for can't-miss events, from the biggest touring productions to the smallest independent ones. In each section, we've selected one event as our hidden gem—something we're really excited about that might fly under your radar, whether because it's hard to categorize (and therefore hard to market) or because its creators aren't quite household names.

In these pages, you'll learn about a new music festival that pushes the boundary between jazz and pop; a photography exhibit that shows the realer, less glamorous side of the food world; a new initiative that's transforming an area museum into a living, breathing social space; an interview-based theater performance that looks death square in the eye; a North Carolina-born author whose forthcoming book gives new meaning to the term "love language;" and an intriguing film that might just change your mind about James Franco.

There is far more happening this autumn than can be fully represented here, but if you follow our Fall Guide, you'll be certain to hit all of the sure shots while also digging out a hidden gem or two you might never have discovered otherwise.
