This also makes the Pat Boone cover seem less sincere than the Fats Domino version because he did not make much of an attempt to make his cover notably different or “his own.” His intent seemed to be mostly to deliver the song to a different audience rather than to use the song to tell a story that he related to. Additionally, he altered the meaning of the song somewhat, but he did not add much of a new perspective given that the song was still coming from the point-of-view of a man who had gotten his heartbroken by his lover. In contrasts, Fats Domino’s original version seemed like it was intended to cover the mixed emotions that one may feel at the end of a relationship, and
The viewers of the play of Ray Bradbury’s, Fahrenheit 451, agreed that the reenactment was very different than what they were expecting, after reading the novel. The play was not the worst thing the audience had seen but it certainly wasn’t the best. For a well known novel that complies censorship, the Fahrenheit 451 play was very unsatisfactory due to its absence of acting skills, unnecessary props and scenes, and erroneous interpretations and plot. The absence of superior acting skills is not something that is wanted out of a play when that is the main component. During this play the actress portraying the character of Clarisse was exceedingly dramatic and too monotone.
Uncertainty is such a hard thing to deal with, most people prefer knowing more about something than knowing less. The very beginning of The Mojo and Sayso is confusing, I struggled with figuring out who Acts was. Small Planets taught us to examine the world of the play, to really dig into what is written out. The text shows us that Act was male, however it isn’t until page three that we even see Acts and Awilda talk to each other and even their dialogue didn’t specifically describe their relationship. On page four Awilda says “Forgive me.
When he was finally at peace that is when he was at his most beauty. The actors did a good job at making sure the themes were clear. The text and their emotions showed that the themes were meaningful and important. The only critique I have is that maybe it would have been better to have the chorus talk about the themes at the end and wrap it all up to make sure everyone
Throughout the great tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, many of the characters acted carelessly, without considering the consequences of their actions. Shakespeare used these characters to effectively emphasize the understanding of how important it is to act with caution and reasoning. The characters in the story often had not accurately analyzed decisions and issues that needed to be resolved, and would often make weak choices, ending in them meeting their fate, or greatly impacted the lives of their surrounding companions or family. Is it problematic to make resolutions without legitimate understanding of the hypothetical outcomes? Based on the words of William Shakespeare in Romeo and Juliet, he proves this point adequately.
In an excerpt from Little Women, the March sisters craved attention from their mother and had to make the difficult of helping others. Influence is the prime factor in the way choices are made. Things like past experiences, self relevance, and cognitive biases build up the influence in decisions. In “Abuela Invents the Zero” by Judith Ortiz-Cofer, Constancia makes a number of decisions that are influenced by cognitive biases, self-relevance, and past experiences. The text specifies this by saying, "I 'm so embarrassed that even though the woman next to me is shooting daggers at me with her eyes, I just can 't move to go get her" (Ortiz-Cofer para 14).
Change in the plot events and setting such as the death of Phineas, along with Gene’s emotional appeal are totally ruled out of the film, making it difficult for the viewer to enjoy. Peter Yates has captured many key points from the original novel of John Knowles A Separate Peace, but has left out some vital fragments of the narrative. Therefore, the film should have fewer moderations, keeping the viewers pleased plus having the original storyline still
This search for independence is interesting because I believe that it is something that I can relate to, even in this day and age. In The House of Mirth, Lily struggles with whether or not she should get married like all the other women that she knows, or if she should just accept the fact that she will not have a husband. Both Wharton and Chopin’s stories use similar themes and ideas in order to show that regardless of whether women were trying to find themselves or save themselves, things were different for them simply because they were females. In both The Awakening and The House of Mirth, the theme of “Freedom vs Slavery” is used to show that life was undoubtedly different for men and women. In The Awakening, the theme of freedom vs slavery is shown because throughout the novel it addresses that women are nothing without their men and that it is impossible for a woman to do anything better than a man.

I wanted to test my ASL skills so I didn 't take the headsets. I felt pretty confident but once the play started I realized I was sitting too far from the stage and I didn 't have my glasses with me. Also, I felt intimidated by the fast signing and there were signs I didn 't know. Half way through there was a break so I had to go
