An Entertained Era In today’s modern world, millions of people around the globe enjoy to be entertained by the arts, such as music, dancing, animation, acting, and film. Although these forms of amusement are popular and widespread, many people might not realize that these activities got their origins from the Renaissance era. In the Renaissance Era, the entertainment industry began to soar and the largest form of entertainment was the theatre, which has many different aspects that play into having a successful drama; some of which include great playwrights, quality actors, and the stage itself. The Renaissance era was full of amazing playwrights, but by far the most well-known of all the authors is William Shakespeare. While Shakespeare
The Bard of Literature Modern day literature was shaped by Shakespeare, one of the greatest playwrights of all time. He came from a big family and had a wife and three kids. He wrote plays for the masses instead of the rich and wasn’t afraid to make fun of the rich either. He wrote famous works of literature such as Romeo and Juliet. If the world didn’t have Shakespeare the average man would not have an education.
“19th century theatre was dominated by actor-managers who ran the productions and played the lead roles in productions” (V&A Museum). They were quite common during this time period and did so much to make the theatre better. Some actor-managers such as Henry Irving (1838-1905) and Herbert Beerbohm Tree (1852-1917) enhanced the theater by creating real sparks for sword fights, real rabbits, grass, water, and crazy makeup (V&A Museum). Realism in theatre was already very popular and admired, but these actor-managers brought this idea to completely new heights. Although the actor-managers were only men for a very long time, Eliza Vestris became the first woman actor-manager of London in 1830 (V&A Museum).
But the most effective way to increase is by the title recognition. For instance, seeing Helen on the billboard people could get an idea of what it could have been about but not a full understanding. The way that GVSU does the production work financially is by taking the “ticket revenue and putting towards the next event.” The ticket proceeds help also as Lane claims. Although the university does support the theatre financially also to a certain degree. Lane quotes that, “it’s very hard to make a profit off of the theatre because of this.” At the college, Lane could have increased marketshare if they would have made it clear how to get to the performance at the college.
Germany also had a great advancement in the film industry, with great films such as “Metropolis” which was directed by the best known director Fritz Lang. Erich Remarque who wrote the famous novel “All quiet on the Western Front” dominated the literature field. The publishing companies sold five hundred thousand copies of the novel within three months of its production in 1929. It was not long until Berlin was well known as Paris for its social life as many foreigners went to Berlin to experience its new cultural changes. Some Germans thought it was unpatriotic but it was in fact improvement that contributed to making Germany a modern
Conclusion The theatre world of the Shakespearean Era in London was a big progress for the whole history of theatre. People like William Shakespeare, James Burbage and the King's Men made it possible to create a completely new form of watching plays. Although they introduced plenty of innovations to the playhouses and the plays themselves, the low-pricing policy of the Globe was affordable for nearly everyone, no matter what class you were from and enabled a large spread of plays or any kind of entertainment. William Shakespeare used the public playhouse to première many of his plays, like Macbeth, The Winter's Tale or Richard II and he really had a passion for it. Those happenings in the late 16th and early 17th century paved the way for a legal and censor free theatre experience in the modern world and plays like Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar, Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth and the revolutionary way they were circulated will never fall into

Showman Sid Graumann built the theater in 1927 to host the premiere of the epic film “King of Kings” directed by Cecil B. DeMille. The building was designed in an Oriental style and actresses and actors could leave behind their foot and hand prints in
The ticket prices are a lot more expensive for the NBA than the WNBA. For example, the tickets for the New York Liberty in the lower part of section 109, in Madison Square Garden, are $69 each. However, it is $238 per ticket on Stub Hub to watch the New York Knicks. NBA tickets are in a higher demand because more people want to watch, therefore, the tickets are more expensive and the NBA makes a larger profit. This is a major struggle in the WNBA because not many people watch the games, and many believe watching the WNBA is “boring”.
Theaters are in the business of selling things and advertising and that's how they make their money. For example, if the people started bringing in their own food the movie theater wouldn't have enough to pay the staff and expenses. So they would have to raise movie ticket prices and have more Ads. They don’t allow us to bring food so they don’t have raise prices. In the article from Scope,” If consumers stopped buying food, owners would have to raise ticket prices even higher.” This quote means that if people stopped buying food, then the owners will start raising the prices for the tickets because they won’t be making enough money to pay
In one scene Mrs. Robinson is seen briefly nude and was very explicit for cinema in the 60’s but there was a high demand for it. “…Once the news of onstage disrobing broke, the Gielgud box office was selling tickets faster than you can say “drop trou.””[Grove] Sexuality was also a topic explored in this film, with one main theme coming from the fact the female was the sexual aggressor. As well as an older woman that
One way they did this was through the use of cut prices and other ploys to attract customers. Other theaters offered “bank nights” where one lucky customer went home with a cash prize (Price). Financial lures aside, another reason the film industry survived was its psychological appeal. Attending movies provided an escape from the dreary suffering of everyday life (Price). Movies of the decade also tended to be of a more realistic nature than the films of the 1920s.
