It was very good experience to learn about him, and how he loves people and listen to them. Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is the first musical play I've gone to. I thought it wouldn’t be very good, but when I saw it I liked it. There are some factors made the play successful which are the music, the stage, and the actors. Music and the songs played important roles in the play.
plot, song, character, dance and setting, these elements should all blend together into a seamless whole, with no stops in between and should run smoothly. From reading ‘Musical Theatre: A History’ John Kendrick states a different opinion on Oklahoma! and whether or not it is fully integrated. “Oklahoma! Was most certainly not the first integrated musical, but it was the first organic musical play, in which every element serves as a crucial, meaningful piece of the whole’ (Kendrick, J.
Casey must have connected to a memory from her childhood that led her to despair during the play, as her character had me on the verge of tears. Evan was able to truly act as a crazy man without caring what anyone would think, and this helped develop is character as well. Overall, the actors used many of their talents in order to make the play believable, relate to and interest the
“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view-” “[Atticus]?” “-until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.”(lee 36). Harper Lee’s finest piece of literature, To Kill a Mockingbird, shares the story of young “Scout” Jean Louise Finch and her older adolescent brother, Jem Finch. Their father, Atticus, attempts to teach his children to treat everyone with compassion, forgiveness and acceptance, contrary to the other families of their home town, Maycomb County. To judge a person entirely off of his or her first impression is common with children, but the Finch’s later realize their significant mistake after getting to know them. A local man, Arthur “Boo” Radley is first of the various people the Finch children see as something their not.
Through his lyrics you start to not only hear but feel their struggle and love for each other as family. The production starts with the opening song, In the Heights, that sets up the entire tone of the production. The opening song is long with a mix of singing and acting allowing you to understand the backstory. Each song from the opening to the finale will have you want to jump up and dance along with the cast. The songs are catchy and heartwarming, have you feel part of the production.
Ken Gargaro used a universal set. This one set was used for every scene of the musical, other pieces of furniture were added and removed to portray other scenes and settings throughout the play. This is something that works well for theater companies who are on a budget for a set, it allows the audience to understand where the scene is taking place without spending crazy amounts of money. Lighting during the show was done perfectly, it was easy to understand who was the main focus of each scene. On the night I attended the show sound was an issue.
The musical biopic is a style of film that has never faded away. Audiences never tire of hearing the stories of the actors and performers that they grew up listening to and watching, and whether those performers are portrayed by other actors or by themselves, something about the dramatization and magnification of their stories draws the viewer in a powerful way. These movies still carry the glitz and glamour of a fictional Hollywood musical, but the fact that the stories behind them are so concrete, so memorable, and so fascinating is what makes them stand out from a more untrue set of events. Judy Garland is one of the most revered Hollywood stars, so it is only fitting that one of the earliest musical biopics was hers. Unlike some later
Have you ever thought of how comparable two characters from two different books or Tv shows can be or how a character can save so many people 's lives and receive so much hate behind his back? The book “Lord Of The Flies” by William Golding and the show Lost shows the numerous amount of comparisons between the characters. Jack from lost and Ralph from lord of the flies have multiple similarities. They both try and help when everything is going downhill and they have hopes of getting rescued but some of the characters are not cooperating and they are immensely careless about the situation. The following show and the movie have many apparatus in common.
Shakespeare, the greatest playwright to ever walk the earth. He spent his days thinking of clever ways to write his plays. He often used paradox, pun, and juxtaposition to indirectly describe his characters. This helped keep the audience focused because they were trying to find all of the hidden meanings in the actors lines. shakespeare uses indirect characterization to make him, and his plays, something that people still talk about in amazement years after his passing.
Most of Maycomb County does not trust Boo, however, he progresses from an out of control beast to a loving friend. During the exposition of To Kill a Mockingbird, Lee portrays Boo Radley as the ghost of a wild, foolish troglodyte. Time and time again, the people of Maycomb recount of his reckless childhood. One story, the tale of a young Arthur along with his “enormous and confusing tribe” (12), gives a prime example. As usual, the
The play was written, directed, and produced by Don B. Welch and was performed at Wilshire Ebell Theatre. I enjoyed myself for for almost the entire play with very few exceptions. The production had a well put together storyline and was very funny, conveying a true meaning of what God has in store after death for different people. Although, the play was a great success there were a few small adjustments that could have be made to make the show that much better. The play was extremely funny and
His plays either fell in the comedies category, the histories category, or the tragedy category. During the end of his career his most famous types of writing were the tragedies and the beginning of his years were the histories and comedies. As well as his plays he created 14 line plays called sonnets, which he is least known for but still made beautiful stories throughout them. Throughout the support from Queen Elizabeth , William deserved the achievements he got. “William came up with a new kind of poetry.
After Bach passed is when he really started to get recognized for his works. Bach was more than a music composer, he also wrote books. Of course they were about music though; books of keyboard and organ pieces is what Bach wrote before he passed. Johann Sebastian Bach spent his entire life surrounded by music, something he loves. Toccata and Fugue in D Minor was one of the most famous pieces that Johann Sebastian Bach has written.
Entry One On page twelve of Holes, Stanley gets to the camp and meets Mr. Sir for the first time. Because the camp was so far away, both the bus driver and guard felt understandably irritated. In fact, the guard stated, “Nine hours here, and now nine hours back… What a day.” Stanley “felt a little sorry for the guard and the bus driver” for putting them through the trouble. This reminds me of how in the book Wringer, Palmer feels guilty about a mistake he made. When he is hiding his pet pigeon, Nipper, from the world who wants to kill him, he accidentally left one of Nipper’s toys in his room for the critics to see.
2) Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pies by Jordan Sonnelblick is a unique, heart melting, and a humorous book. At first I thought this book would be about an average boy and his “struggles”, but the more I read I discovered a heartwarming story with unique characters that’s well written. The story is about a boy that has a younger brother with cancer, while his parents are busy working or taking care of their younger brother they fail to see the problems and daily challenges that the older brother is facing. The story’s has unique characters that bring life to the story. For example, Steven is the protagonist, his jokes can cheer anybody up, and he’s well known as Pes (a nickname his friends gave him, short for Peasant), and he even shaved his
