The piece started in darkness, allowing the 4 female dancers to run to their spots. There the four girls stood facing each other in a square formation, center stage, each one acting as the corner. Each dancer was wearing a similar sheer black dress with pink accents. While no dress
The Charlotte York Irey Theatre presented an electrifying performance Sunday as BFA students demonstrated their artistic creativity intertwined by influences from their academic careers in the dance concert Catapult. Catapult featured four experimental performances, each one as unique as the other in respect to their individual choreographers: Taylor King, Kaitlyn Lawrence, Mattie McGarey and Olivia DeMoulin. As the eager audience took to their seats, a dense cloud of theatrical smoke slowly encompassed the room until the dark red lights beaming down from the ceiling seemed to thicken the air. The ambiance the lighting was emitting onto the audience had a significant impact as murmurs of the newly arrived crowd turned into silence; as the set slowly
The play, A Chorus Line, is about a group of people who have gone through many hardships and are trying out for a spot in the chorus line of a musical. The play opens with a group of people, some of which get eliminated, and the other move on to the interviews.

The play takes place in New York One of the conflicts in the play is the relationship between the two leads, Zach and Cassie who were dating each other until it fell apart, and Cassie went to California to act, but decided she liked dancing more and moved back to New York and auditioned for the chorus line.
Being an active viewer while watching a performance allows yourself to understand the meaning behind different aspects of the performance in your own interpretations of the choreographers message. While watching Igor Stravinsky’s piece titled Rite of Spring, the opening dance resembles the theme of The Scarlett Letter novel. During the dance, I saw some movements and space recognition that represented a burden of this “letter” an individual dancer with corresponding a with the other dancers in the piece who symbolized a society. The “letter” in the novel was a woman who had a child out of wedlock with the society around her being angry with her action. This was a burden upon the women because this aspect wasn’t appropriate to others in 1850’s when the novel
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.
He is now on the journey to find the truth. He abandons all reality and lives a secluded live after section I of the novella. The superficial items in his room that signified reality and the objects we purchase to satisfy our materialistic needs. He no longer required this objects as he was above reality. The search for truth is neither easy nor fruitful for most.
Mallard. The two true themes of this story are loss and irony and Mrs. Mallard embodies both of these. The theme of loss is littered throughout this story; first Mrs. Mallard thinks that she has lost her husband; second she finds out that she has lost her new freedom, and finally Mr. Mallard loses his husband. While many readers may see Mrs. Mallard’s death as the greatest loss, Chopin’s writing suggests that it is instead the loss of new life that Mrs. Mallard has so quickly discovered. She had her entire new life planned out, and it all came crashing down within an hour.
In his short story “The Pedestrian”, Ray Bradbury uses figurative language to reveal the characterization of Mr. Leonard Mead. First, Bradbury describes Mead’s shadow as “moving like the shadow of a hawk in midcountry.” By using this simile, Mead can be characterized as moving alone and quietly through a seemingly abandoned area, creating him as a peaceful, desolate man. Next, Mead is described as standing “not unlike a night moth, stunned by the illumination.” This simile, compares Mead to a night moth, obviously not used to and surprised by the bright light in the normal darkness, as he prefers to be at peace in the twilight. Finally, Mead is compared to a “museum specimen” when stopped by the police car. By stating this comparison, Bradbury
The final piece of these quotes is the sound of the clock. This “dull, heavy, monotonous clang” is a sound that causes everyone to stop partying (Poe 84). The constant reminder of death, and what these people have done to escape it is an important piece of Poe’s allegory. Poe is able to show the reader how time connects to fate and his theme. The clock is not just a reminder of time, but also a constant denial of
He loved the Civic Center and the passion and freedom that adorned its walls. Brayden also found time to be able to be apart of many smaller productions for community theaters surrounding the area as a lead role in many productions: Aladdin, Mary Poppins, Newsies, Of Mice and Men, Sweeney Todd, Pippin, and the whole lot of classic Broadway pieces. Braydens work as a successful marketing manager and rising star landed him the role of his dreams only 5 years after graduating. Brayden just turned 30 as he landed the role of Warner Huntington III in Legally Blonde: The Musical (the Broadway Revival). He left his favorite place of work to do on stage loving what he used to do alone in his bedroom…...sing and dance.
