The dialogue and lyrics are straightforward and full of ironic elements, which bring a lot of fun to enjoy. The transition from lines into a song is pretty smooth. For example, when Shrek is “hurt” by what Fiona says and his anger reaches a climax, he naturally starts to sing to express his emotion. In addition, the music, which embraces several styles such as pop, rock and jazz, also add dynamics into the show. So in sum, the writing of the show is appealing.

Shitfaced Shakespeare a Midsummer night 's dream has been one of the funniest plays! I had a great time, I was laughing all time long. Everything was super funny. I was also able to understand the Shakespearean language and maybe that 's also why I had a great time. I thought it was hard to understand at first but it eventually got easier and the play became super funny.
The musical Seussical the Musical was a jovial experience that made many including me reminiscence the times when we read Dr. Suess. The creative sets, colorful costumes, and the acting skills brought Dr. Seuss 's books alive. I truly enjoyed the aspect of joining Dr. Seuss books and plots, like Gertrude McFuzz to create one plot and the inclusion of The Cat in the Hat in many of the scenes. The musical captured the ambience of the books, specifically Horton Hears A Who. The dedication of those in the musical shined from their eminent acting skills and their ability to display the character they portrayed.
The reader finds himself or herself cheering on LuPone as she struggles through moments in her career and celebrating her success with Sweeney Todd and Gypsy towards the final chapters. Many people are originally drawn to read this book as fans of LuPone’s work in Gypsy and Les Misérables. It is so interesting to read about her vast range of theatrical and film work. Some readers may have no idea that her first Tony Award nomination was for The Robber Bridegroom, which is currently being produced Off-Broadway. It is worth pointing out again that her sense of humor is highly entertaining.
The singers sang this piece with many of the same tone quality as in Messiah, but the overall balance was better. In Feast of Carols, the men could be heard just as well as the women. In the future, I would love to sing this piece because it has a magical element to it. The piece is constantly morphing seamlessly into the next small section of a carol. At the conclusion of this wonderful piece, the choir and orchestra received a massive standing ovation from the ecstatic crowd.
Ethel Merman Ethel Merman was an actress and singer known for her many theatrical performances, especially her role as Rose in Gypsy. I reviewed a performance in which she sang Some People from Gypsy and had several duets with Fred Astaire. This was a quick and comedic performance, that was quite enjoyable to review. I believe that Ethel Merman was a true star shown in her volume, use of air, unique tone quality, posture, diction, and range that all strive towards the typical broadway bold and strong performance. Ethel Merman’s voice could be described as big, broad, and bright.
Regarding the love between Romeo and Juliet, we can see that it is shown as ideal, perfect and young love. In order to understand it in a proper way, it is necessary to explore the chronological order of events related to the development of their love. In the act I, scene V, Romeo meets Juliet at the ball of Capulet´s house, and he thinks she is the love of his life. He says: “O she doth teach the torches to burn bright. ….Did my heart love till now?
Sophie Shao and Milana Strezeva displayed this well in their performance. Sophie Shao’s cello performance and Milana Strezeva’s piano performance was definitely beautiful and enjoyable to my ears. I have attended multiple orchestral concerts and piano recitals, but Sophie Shao definitely had the most emotion and enthusiasm in her playing. I could tell by the way she spoke of each of the pieces and how she described the composers that she was very knowledgeable in the field of music and how much passion she had towards both music and the cello. I enjoyed the performance to the fullest extent and I hope to see hear her play again
Katherine Anne Porter was born on May 15, 1890 and died September 18, 1980. Porter was known to be an amazing writer and author in the mid to late 1900s. Known for her smart and clever insight, many of her short stories deal with dark themes such as betrayal, and death. Born and raised in Indian Creek, Texas, she had a short marriage to her first husband, John, and left him to pursue an acting career. “First she moved to Chicago, where she was a journalist and movie extra; then Denver, Colorado, where she worked as a drama critic for the Rocky Mountain News; and then New York City” (LitFinder par.
The actors were entertaining. I enjoyed their facial expressions and the way they shared the stage. These actors were a triple threat, they could all sing, dance, and had great acting skills. It was too much talent in one setting. The actors used the forth wall method and talked to the audience through-out the play and that’s always my favorite part.
Side Show was put together through the Kent Theatre Department. The set design, acting, and theme came together to create the love story between Daisy and Violet. Side Show was written by Bill Russell and directed by Amy Fritsche. The production of this musical created a performance that was exhilarating and remarkable. The authors of the production were trying to emphasize that even though Daisy and Violet are conjoined twins, they were meant to be together.
The hologram system the productions used is second to non, the music was all original and epic in scale, and the performers are at the top of their league. They show was incredibly unique and did a great job celebrating the magic of the holidays. While a bigger platform works well for the Cirque type shows, this was an excellent use of the area to display the always-entertaining Cirque show. Plan for magical, high flying, comical, and mystical mixture of talents on the stage at any given time. Borealis a Holiday Cirque features aerialists, jugglers, acrobats, gymnasts, dancers, hand balancers, high wire artists, Russian swing performers,
The Brass and orchestra instruments really add to the piece. This song is also religious. My favorite selection was “Carol of the Bells.” This was my favorite because I have always loved fast, and upbeat music. I also liked how they used many different bells, and played them on the accents of the song. I also liked how the men were singing one part, while the women were singing another.
It appears either trough songs or by the usage of musical instruments. Again, the presence of music in the play helps the viewer to transfer to this magical land of Greece and travel together with Odysseus, through his challenges. The original songs that are composed by Griffin Back are wonderful and are fitting perfectly with the plot and the message that is delivered to the spectators. His creativity and talent are enabling the songs to merge well with the scenes and to bring the viewers to a mystical dimension. Griffin Back is also a part of the cast of The Odyssey.
