I had no preconceived ideas about Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson before seeing the musical. After watching the musical, there were a few things that stood out to me to help me understand different aspects of the musical. Knowing very little about Andrew Jacksons life, the acting helped me understand different aspects of his life. The part of the production that helped me most understand the theme of the musical was the costumes. As the lights dimmed and the cast took the stage to sing their opening number, the first thing to catch my eye was the costumes of the cast.
Stephen Sondheim is a well known composer in the Broadway community. His rare talent of writing both music and lyrics has earned him a “cult following.” His followers adore him due to his sophisticated music, topics, and approaches; however, four musicals made a particular impact toward Sondheim’s life, and affected his songwriting career. These four musicals are West Side Story, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, and Sunday in the Park with George. Stephen Joshua Sondheim was born on March 22, 1930 in New York City, New York, United States. When he was younger, he studied music and enjoyed school.
One such Broadway pioneer, Stephen Sondheim, develops a style that relies on wit and shock factor to make statements about American society. Unlike the musical comedies that initially set a precedent for their gaudy numbers that highlight the performers, Sondheim’s musicals contain strong plots and characters that highlight the plot. The songs contribute to the setting and situation of the musical instead of distracting from the story. Audiences initially meet his musicals with mixed opinions: some love them for their intellectuality, but the musicals shock others with their bold themes. Presently, audiences increasingly respect Sondheim’s musicals for their innovative themes and formats.
In conclusion, I have learned a lot about Mozart. I hope that people of this generation will continue to listen to his music. He was one of the greatest composers. His legacy still has a big effect on our modern lives, his music flows through our everyday lives through mediums like commercials, nursery rhymes and movies. I will continue to learn more about him and listen to his music and experience
