Music and the arts were heavily involved into Jonathan Larson’s life as a child and young adult. He was born February 4, 1961, in White Plains, New York, and was always musically inclined as a child. His parents found it vital to involve musical theatre into Jonathan and his sister Julie’s childhood. The Encyclopedia of World Biography states that “when Larson was a child; he was taken to see a children’s version of La Boheme, Giacomo Puccini’s opera about a group of struggling young artists or “Bohemians.” From that seed, the idea that would become Rent, slowly germinated over the next two decades” (Jonathan Larson). Growing up, Larson had several musical influences that shaped his specific music taste including Kurt Cobain, Liz Phair, Prince, Leonard Bernstein, and Stephen Sondheim.
As a director, I believe all these theories are useful to learn so that I can have as many options of working as possible. Also in the theatre world, it will be helpful to know these so when other artists talk about how they were trained and other uses of style I can fully understand that. Side note, I did a rasabox workshop in high school and I thought it was such an amazing tool. When I found out that Paula Cole invented it, I freaked out in excitement so I’d love to learn from her about this
If an author can spark emotion in so many audience members, it shows that their writing style is extremely effective. Additionally, “Shakespeare is also credited as having invented genres that mixed both tragedy and comedy. His genre-bending work contributed to brand-new experiences of both story-telling and theater” (Octane 1). Since he has introduced new genres, playwrights would now have more genres and may be inspired to create a different variety of plays. “Also, Source C says that “He would direct a production of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, with the title character a provocative
The Aristotelian element of drama known as spectacle, or what is seen onstage, is important to the development of any play or musical. Spectacle plays an influential and essential role in Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House. The specific things and actions the audience sees in this play provides them with necessary information to understand the characters, storyline, and many other aspects of the play. There are numerous examples of specific things Ibsen intended for the patrons to observe throughout the course of this show. These are so significant to understanding the work, that a reader of this script can recognize them, even if he or she has never seen a production of A Doll’s House.
B. The idea to overcome love and get through obstacles was genius trying to keep lovers was very moving for everybody for people who have watched it. C.

When William Shakespeare created Romeo and Juliet it was 1594-9.
Blake Webb Play Production Review THAR 208-500 Macbeth Production Review For my Theatre Arts class we were issued the assignment of attending the Macbeth Production done by Texas A&M students. We were asked to do an analysis of the changes made to the production as feedback on Director Aaron Glover’s twist on Macbeth. This was none the less an entertaining play and held my attention throughout; However, the play seem to go over my head which cause me to be confused for quite sometime. Towards the end I caught on but over all it wasn’t the easiest to interpret. The Director Aaron Glover’s work to me, made the play more confusing than what it need to be and had me lost throughout the majority of the production.
I was 8 years old and loved to captivate the audience. My friends and I always wanted to create a small play to show someone, mainly because we found it enjoyable. Whenever we had a small school production in elementary school, I always volunteered to play the lead character. As I grew older, I started to investigate deeper into the true aspect of performing. My passion started to cultivate and evolve, and I gradually started to discover its roots.

High school has impacted my life in so many ways. High School taught me so many things, from personal relationships to creating a relationship with my education. As a freshman, I made a huge amount of mistakes and I regret doing foolish things, but I’ve realized, I was only maturing into the young adult I am today. Freshman year, I was out of focus and I was only trying to find myself. I would also prioritize other things and ignore my parent’s advice, where they would tell me to focus in school and give it my full attention.
Elora’s performances, achieved through both deliberate and fastidious interpretation, have made her one of the best young actors with whom I have had the pleasure to work in 22 years of producing high school theater. Elora had many years of Drama training and experience through community theater prior to joining
By the beginning of my junior year, band had become a chore rather than an anticipated hobby; the love that it had brought me began to wear off. Prideful were the leaders, poised was our performance, and professional we tried to be; however, it was never enough. We missed finals by a long shot.
As an ensemble, we were all part of the set building of Rent, which took place prior to show-week. It was vital that as a team, we all contributed to the process as I feel as though this enabled us to truly appreciate the time and effort that goes into creating an incredible set. Additionally, Rent is all things bohemian and I truly believe that we captured this through the towers, bridge, ladders and added set which we incorporated to the build. As a cast, it was an amazing experience to be able to share my director Pauls vision, after 7 weeks of rehearsal in classrooms. I found that being in the space created “the canvas on which the technical elements give the play mood, color, feeling, texture, environment and movement” (Fazio, 2000, pg.
Modern art is usually nothing but raw emotion or powerful ideas driving the art. Which, to me makes the art far more intimate and personal than other styles. Marla was driven purely by her love of painting and seeing that in the videos made me want to understand more pieces of Modern Art. On the other hand this film also made me realized that I could never just “view” works of Modern Art without at least story of why the artist did it. To me, it loses its value once the story attached to it is no longer
