They used “virtuosity” to really help connect with the audience in a surreal way. The actors not only were playing a role but it really felt that the original actors were genuinely there. They took the role they were given and really made it their own. They did this by changing their voice tone by pitch and also by using body gestures. By them doing this it gave the audience an awesome experience to connect with the actors.
Despite all of the differences that he and his father had; he told the most beautiful story that was the perfect ending to a fantastic movie. The impact of the marvelous acting skills was that it helps the viewer to feel the emotions of the characters and actually connect with the movie. Another example of this phenomenal acting is the way that the colors that the characters wore matched their personalities. For example, the people in the circus wore very bright and bold colors that represented their outgoing personalities. Also, Sandra’s appearance is soft, gentle and full of light colors to match her kind and loving personality.
A specific line that magnified his voice change was, ¨are we supposed to dress up all nutty, and all?¨ In this particular line, the repetition and word choice delivered the perfect opportunity for Caleb to shine. By using his developed character voice, it becomes apparent how unsure and awkward Rick is as a character, and Caleb emphasized this unique behavior astoundingly well. As a whole, the entire cast seemed truly comfortable onstage, and had natural
Robert De Niro acting was really believable from being paralyzed and ticks of his body to recovery. His genuine smile and outlook about life made the audience emphatize to his situation. He deftly handles all the emotional and physical challenges of his role. His most emotionally eloquent playing inarticulate characters, and though his performance as Leonard starts out a little too cute, it grows more daring as the movie progresses. One of the central weaknesses of Awakenings is that it fails to dramatize the fact that Leonard, unlike some of the other
One of the actors or actresses of the movie are Robin Williams as Dr. Malcolm Sayer which is one of the most main characters in the movie, the center of almost every scene and his personality becomes one of the touchstones of the movie, This is one of Robin Williams ' best performances, pure and uncluttered, He is a lovable man here, who experiences the extraordinary professional joy of seeing chronic, hopeless patients once again sing and dance and greet their loved ones, demonstrates convincingly that he is an actor, not just a comedian. Williams is perhaps a bit too nerdy at first, but he captures perfectly all the hope, fear, exhilaration, and anguish that a doctor in that situation must be experiencing. Robert De Niro as Leonard Lowe one of the catatonic patients, and he deftly handles all the emotional and physical challenges of his role. Ruth Nelson as Mrs. Lowe the mother of Leonard Low and Julie Kavner as Eleanor Costello the nurse the assistant and the supporter of Dr. Sayer. All of them did a great job because it is not easy as it looks like, acting that you are sick and knowing that there are people suffering from this world not just physically but mentally and emotionally, like they have many different symptoms, but essentially they all share the same problem: They cannot make their bodies do what their minds desire.
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. As a musical that is created based on a blockbuster, the basic story framework is without novelty – an ugly but kind-hearted ogre experiences lots of dangers with a friend, saves the princess like a hero and wins her heart in the end. However, I have to admit that Shrek the Musical does a fantastic job to convert a movie into a Broadway show, considering the high level of complexity and difficulty for a team to humanize animated characters and imitate scenes. There are a lot of details, including Pinocchio’s growing nose, in the musical that show off the elaboration. Undoubtedly, the scenery is one of the brightest spot in this musical.
He used the audience in a very good manner and made that person that people just come to know that can’t get any girls. It was funny to see how much this guy tried to get the girl which I can relate to seeing that around me. Genevieve was also a great actor, but I couldn’t relate as much. Though it also brings out that person depicted in other people’s minds that goes out with every boy. There is these whole spectrum which is depicted just by these two actors.
Nolan is a true devotee to the ‘real’ and practical elements of film. His faithfulness to creating worlds and characters based on reality engenders an insatiable appetite for his work in the palates of audiences. This is, of course, fitting since Nolan plays on every moviegoer’s deepest – often hidden in the subconscious – desire, to see himself reflected on the big screen. It is this quality of humans, to seek themselves in others, that makes Nolan’s approach thrilling for the audience. His covenant to realism only enhances this excitement and makes both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight successful.
I had some memorization problems, but closer to performance time, I hammered down of memorization and got everything down. I also remember when I first saw my costume. I laughed hysterically when I saw my hilarious hat and oven-mitt like claws, but I loved them. By performance time, I was ready. So ready.
Lastly I would have moved more so that I wasn't so static. Out of our class I think that Matthew McGuire did the best job with his speech because he had very good movements, his speech was funny, and he talked loud and clear. His movements were good because he was walking to the edges of the box and was making a lot of very good hand gestures. His speech was funny because he is clumsy and forgetful, and he had jokes in his speech. He was also funny because he was dynamic and was laughing and smiling to nudge us along.
