  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Blast!

    Hey Gang, Let's Give It the Old College Try

    Bruce Weber

    April 18, 2001: One feels bad about criticizing the nice young men and women who perform in ''Blast!,'' the halftime show that has wandered onto the stage at the Broadway Theater as if it got lost on the way to the stadium. Mostly in their 20's, and all members of a nonprofit performing and educational group called Star of Indiana, which is based in Bloomington, they are brass players and percussionists, dancers and jugglers, a glowingly good-looking bunch, and irrepressibly cheery, too. Rah, rah.
