Shrek the Musical is a Broadway musical comedy that is created by DreamWorks Theatricals in 2008. It is adapted from Shrek, a 2001 DreamWorks Animation movie, as well as a 1990 children’s literature Shrek! written by William Steig. The original musical is directed by Jason Moore with book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire and music by Jeanine Tesori. After watching the recording version of Shrek the Musical, I consider that it is a successful production if the purpose of this musical is to amuse audiences and bring them an enduring audio-visual feast.
St Dennis had the privilege to take ballet classes with Maria Bonfante, who was an Italian ballerina.

In the sixth chapter of the great Gatsby, Daisy, Nick, and Tom both go to one of Jay Gatsby’s parties. There, she danced with Gatsby and sat at tables with Nick when Gatsby had to take a phone call. Even though Daisy attended Gatsby’s party, “‘she didn’t have a good time’” (page 109). Gatsby expected Daisy to enjoy herself but got proven wrong, this represents situational irony, F. Scott Fitzgerald utilizes this form of irony to portray how Daisy requires some form of material object for her to feel happy, as shown in this chapter, she had the only option to socialize, which “She saw something awful in the very simplicity she failed to understand” (page 107). Situational irony also gets illustrated in this section of the chapter because wealthy
Trois Morceaux, originally choreographed by Anna Sokolow in 1990 and composed by Sergei Rachmaninoff was reconstructed by Artemis Preeshl and performed at the spring dance concert. It was originally choreographed for a 1990 New York concert, but it was never performed. In 1991 the original dancers videotaped Sokolow’s choreography.

The piece started in darkness, allowing the 4 female dancers to run to their spots.
42nd Street vs. Gold Diggers of 1933 42nd Street directed by Lloyd Bacon (1933) and Gold Diggers of 1933 directed by Mervyn LeRoy (1933) are both musicals that deal with putting on a show during the depression while also dealing with personal relationships with not only lovers but fellow actors and friends as well.

I knew this was a good sign and my nerves immediately drifted away. I met the director who showed me
After a successful premiere of the film Lina’s is ousted as not portraying her real voice and Kathy is then celebrated. This is reflexive because a as joke the it’s the actress that plays Lina’s own voice that’s used to dub herself.
