Jane was a famous child star, where Blanche got recognized and became a famous actress later in her life. After reading Susan Sontag’s essay “Notes on ‘Camp’” I feel that the movie is “Camp.” In her essay Sontag says, “ All camp objects and persons, contain a large element of artifice.” Throughout the movie, we witness how manipulative these two sisters are. Both sisters juggle with each other to take control over each other, but no one wins. Blanche tries to run over Jane with her car, but she ends up breaking her spins. Blanche never reveled the truth until she was near to death.

One of the most well-known entertainers of the world, Beyoncé, is part of the best singers in the music industry. She is, somehow, considered to be a great example of the Feminist movements for showing off the talents of the femininity. The Feminist Movement started in the 1840’s, but it didn’t really expand until the 1960’s after Betty Friedan’s book The Feminine Mystique was published.

This musical is not only turning heads because of its fabulous Tony Award winning leading actress, Jessie Mueller, but also because it is the first Broadway show with an all-female creative team.

After a little digging, I realized that gender inequality is way more prevalent in theatre than I originally expected.
