Jabari Walters 28 April 2016 Theatre 2010 Rachel Aker Harlequin in the Ghetto production response On Wednesday April 27, 2016 I saw the world premiere of Louisiana State University’s version of HITG. Honestly it may have been on the plays that I ever seen in my life, because the way that it was presented to the audience. The play was written by a young Jewish prisoner named Zdeněk Jelínek who lived in the Terezín ghetto which is also known as the Theresienstadt Concentration Camp. Before he passed away he gave the script of this play to one of his good friends who kept the script up until the 1970’s when script was given to a small theatre production company. Lisa Peschel re-discovered the play while doing research on the cultural life in the ghetto.
While Macbeth plainly states in asides and dialogue with his wife that he is planning to mislead other characters, Hamlet does not openly speak of his tricks. One of the most intriguing and puzzling parts of the play is Hamlet’s antic disposition that he speaks of in the first act: “As I perchance hereafter shall think meet/ To put an antic disposition on” (I, v, 171-72). Even by the end of Hamlet, a lot is left unclear. While the topic of Hamlet’s antic disposition has arrived at somewhat of a general consensus, certain details regarding his “madness” are fuzzy to say the least. Many things, such as the legitimacy of the ghost of Hamlet’s father and his message for Hamlet, Gertrude’s knowledge of Claudius’s actions, and Hamlet’s hesitancy to avenge his father’s murder remain topics for debate.
Miguel Pinero was heavily influenced by the Young lord because of their teachings, were found in Pinero’s work.

Most of his work were made in Spanish and in English since he was so proud of his Puerto Rican
Unlike the previous plays witnessed, The Allergists Wife is a play that deliberately tries to alienate the audience throughout the play. It almost would seem as if the play is trying to reference a greater topic or idea, something the audience is not inherently aware of. The play as a whole invokes an estranged feeling, that there is always something missing from the play that would give the audience clarity on what is currently occurring. This contrasts with the mainstream aspects of the play, such as the allusions to modern society or the mentions of modern inventions and occurrences that are grounded in the reality of today’s society. Despite these apparent contrasts, the audience in due course comprehends what was revealed, to be parted
Throughout the series of time, the theatre has been an essential integral in human-being. It is through theatre that people gain a sense of understanding for different and relatable perspectives. For many individuals who are, or have been involved in theatre, it has nourished them with meaningful messages and morals. A well-known company called “ Bread and Puppet” is an old but prevalent theater in our society today. The Bread and Puppet Theater was founded in 1963 by Peter Schumann in Lower East Side of New York City (Bread and Puppet Theater).
Bertolt Brecht gave a concept of “Aliegnation theory” and “epic theatre”. His idea of the actor’s role is very different from Stanislavski’s. By showing theatre, he wants to educate his audience in an entertaining manner. He thought that audience were manipulated by beautiful sets and theatre technology, lighting, makeup, imaginary fourth wall and also by emotionally effusive acting techniques. He was always against the illusion created by traditional theatre in which the audience observes a slice of life.
In “Waiting for Godot”, written by Samuel Beckett, absurdism is a major theme within the play as an existentialist view of human reality is hugely reflected. The play revolves around the mocking of religion and faith in regards to futility. Ironically, however, the play would not exist without this idea that life has no meaning. The first example of the absurdism present in the play is how the main characters, Vladimir and Estragon spend the entirely of their time waiting for someone who they do not know will arrive. Estragon and Vladimir know very little of this being named Mr. Godot.
Women had become a collection of objects rather than human, but Shakespeare shed some light on the matter at hand and presented a new way of thinking. In Shakespeare’s My Mistress’ Eyes, he purposefully contradicts the typical blazon tradition, uses enjambment, and uses rhyme schemes to create
