The theater sweated an “elegantly suited and scented audience” who gathered to witness the drama of a Spanish playwright named Lorca. The sophisticated attire of the audience alludes that the production shown in the theater is that of a high caliber, thus expecting an elevated sense of social grace from the attendees. However, despite the presence of such a group in the theater, Isabel’s father did not hesitate in standing up in the middle of this audience to “[make] the vigorous hand gestures of a man waving off a departing cruise ship” at his daughter. The metaphor comparing her father to a man wildly waving to a ship provides the audience with a comedic imagery of Isabel’s father’s exaggerated and ridiculous action. Isabel’s father’s frantic waving, juxtaposed with the graceful manners of the sophisticated audience, highlights the action’s humorous absurdity.

On March 28th, I had the pleasure of attending the Broadway show called “The Play That Goes Wrong,” located at the Lycuem Theatre on 149 West 45th Street. On this particular Tuesday evening, I just had a vibe that something wrong was going to happen in this play – shockingly. I did believe this play will truly be memorable judging by the fun quirk of the show’s name. After watching the performance for about two hours, I can conclude that this play went beyond my expectation as its set disasters and characters amusingly caught the attention of me and the rest of the audience. Before the beginning of “The Play That Goes Wrong,” I’ve noticed that actors and crew members were doing last minute touch ups with the stage and wandering around the aisles, looking for their “dog.” Initially, I was very confused about what was going on and what “dog” they were referring to.
