The second theme was about anti-Semitism, the actors had very light conversion about the subject, but it seem that was something that they did not want to be part of or even talk about. For example, on the night of I do not agree with this because they you treat each other equally no matter what side they are born from. Furthermore, The Quintero Theater is a 50'x 50' black box theatre with re-configurable seating risers and 185 seats. It was a small set that had living room/ dining room area. The set was simple, and it had a lot old fashion furniture that you don't see that much unless you have grandparent that still have old style furniture.
I think that allusions are a great tool for literature. They provide information such as what the character believes in and what society is like to the audience. I think that the Shakespearean audience would have understood the allusions because it is during their time period and they understand what everything is like. Yet, if this play was acted today, I don 't think that all of the allusions would be understood. This is because of how different the worlds are today.
It made me see Paris in a more romantic and poetic way. It was very interesting to see how Cyrano would deal with things that would or would not go his way. It was time to close your ears because you wouldn’t want to hear the heartbreaking news that Cyrano would have to deal with, or the times Cyrano would almost get caught. This play was not as good as I thought a professional play would be. It just didn’t reach the standards I had for a play.
Ellen was just used to the easy city life just like Paul said "I was a poor man when you married me. You said you didn't mind. Farming's never been easy, and never will be" (74). Ellen used to live in the city where her father had a store that made a good amount of money. She wanted their life to be the ideal life she had before.
“Prysmas and Thisbe” and “Romeo and Juliet” have some similarities but, shakespeare wrote it to a different theme. Shakespeare uses the theme of love defeated by tragedy, while ovid uses doomed lovers. shakespeare borrowed some of the same ideas as ovid but, in the end result he modified some. The theme they have in common is star-crossed lovers. Shakespeare was a creative writer but he didn 't come up with everything alone.
To interpret a play one needs to have an understanding of its historical background. Therefore, to achieve such a task, one need to be in a position to come up with a brief summary of the play.

These musicals were performed in theaters and are a combination of singing, dancing, and acting. “While relating to the harsh times, these settings not only capture the emotions of its audience but also manipulates them with a positive turn of events at the end” (Hollywood in the Depression). These musicals were a great ways to get people to take their minds off of what was going on around them. “In addition to magical worlds of Oz, musicals painted more familiar scenes such as Depression-stricken cities and tension filled homes”(Hollywood in the Depression). Not all musicals were happy but they still told a good story.
The Crucible: A Most Tragic Tale Defining The Crucible under one specific story type is something that many have tried and many more have debated about. Nathanial Hawthorne never really makes it obvious what the intended genre of the piece is supposed to be. For me personally, I consider it to be a satirical historic fiction. While it is simple for one to come up with their own ideas about the story, others don’t have such an easy time. The debate about whether or not the book is a tragedy is one that has multiple sides and arguments that can be easily understood.
The Romantic period was a time period in which people changed their views of the fine arts, which in turn affected their work. Some people Including Washington Irving did not agree with the view of the Romantic period and made fun of it in their work with some humorous stories. Irving was a well know writer in the late 18th century and early 19th century who grew up in New York. From the beginning of his life till the end, he was a funny man who loved the fine arts. Irving was originally a lawyer, but later he left his judicial career and followed his childhood dream of being a full-time writer, writing some poems which upon closer observation, it can be seen that he makes fun of the Romantic period.
“Godotmania” Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot completely changed our perception of theatre as a whole, thanks in part to the unique and unusual path it took on the wide map of theater. It is perhaps those two words, unique and unusual, that best describe everything we associate with the drama, from its obscure plot and characters, all the way to the stories told of its curious production history. It is safe to assume that when Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot was first released, nobody had expected that a nonsensical ‘adventures’ of two senile old men and their ludicrous inactivity would go on to have such an impact on theater. Ever since its release, the play had been treated as somewhat of an outlier, giving headaches to producers and actors alike. However, the few that had successfully tackled the production of such an absurd drama, can vouch for its importance.
