“The Play That Goes Wrong” required a very detailed strategic plan of the arranged props and set design that actors need to follow in their performance. I believe the performers did a marvelous job in following the detailed choreography of the show. One of the most memorable cast members was Nancy Zamit. She played Annie the stage manager, who took the spotlight when she was forced into playing Charles’ fiancée named Sandra because the original female lead got "knocked unconscious” in the middle of the play. As terribly shy as she was, Zamit intensified the enjoyment of the audience as her character was reading off lines from pages of the script very awkwardly and awfully in an unfitted red dress and wig.
The truth outlined in chapter 6 is that Listening to others, and more significantly, making the speaker feel important will help to keep the links in the verbal chain of communication connected and strong. Chapter 7 rounds out “part 2” and shows how there is an IDIOT inside every individual and how this part of us can manifest when one looses control. The texts humorous example of Mrs. Marry Sunshine” a sweet young lady def to the ugliness of the world. She has never had an vulgar word thrown her way in her entire life. Upon attending a training scenario however, her IDIOIT emerges.
Women readers will especially understand how Margot created an idealized version of Robert, which she thought he found her to be “something precious… a delicate, precious thing he was afraid he might break,” that he was “eager to impress her and that he was vulnerable,” or while trying to convince herself that she could become intimate with him that he had an extreme want for her, and that she “had hurt [his] feelings” by suggesting where they see the movie (Roupenian). It’s not until she’s spent enough time with him to actually get a sense of who he really is that Margot was able to reflect on this idealization when she admits that she hadn’t missed the real Robert, “but the Robert she’d imagined on the other end of all those text messages during break”
Within the play Trash Anthem, the two are already in a relationship and have reached the end. However in Sure Thing, it is the blossoming of a new relationship. Comparing the two plays, the characters are both believable because the reactions that come from the responses are how normal humans would react as well. Trash Anthem developed the characters by showing the “Woman” and her anger truthfully being a longing for her husband. But overall, Sure Thing had more development in character towards the end as Billy and Betty begin to get more excited as they realize they have a connection with things like “Woody Allen” and “Entenmann’s crumb cake” (Ives 12).
It really makes the audience see that that young child sees through his mother's faults but loves her anyways. After Samuel says that, Amelia has a look of realization in her eyes and in that moment, she knew that she loved her son and wanted to make things right. Essie Davis, the actress who plays Amelia, took this scene to another level with the way she was able to change her body language at the right times. The moments she needed to show the venerability of Amelia she or the evil of the Babadook she did. When she had to switch between the two personalities not only did she change the dialogue, but she also changed her entire energy she was giving in the
Her performance, much like Carlsen, was a joy to watch. She had the best performance of the show, tied with the side character of Gordia Hayes as Uncle Fester. Her facial expressions were deadpan when they needed to be, when she was talking to the little brother side character, and animated when called for, when she was talking to her parents or fiancé. Her voice was also the strongest in the show, having the most power for the love song ballads. Sweeney also showed a lot of talent when balancing the morbid curiosity that her family expects her to show when she is at home, and the happy and bouncing woman she appeared to be when with the fiancé character.
Vonnegut uses a convenient narrator and character who is able to comment objectively on a variety of social situations. The main character’s position makes it possible for him to observe a story that is happening outside himself, in this case, the narrator’s position as director allows him to tell the story of Helene and Harry, two actors who are directed to fall in love on stage and simultaneously fall in love in reality. This short story was definitely a page turner, especially because I enjoyed Helen’s determinative attitude to bring Harry to love her despite the difficulties. Even the last line of the story: “She gave me a big smile and said, “Who are we this time?”, left me smiling to the ending of this thoughtful, loving short story (Vonnegut
After the loss of her younger brother and separation from her mother, it is easy to see that she found it very difficult. She was more than lucky to receive the love and care that Hans and Rosa Hubermann provided for her, even if it was accompanied with a strict mentality and plenty of yelling. Hans was a nurturing presence in Liesel's life, teaching her to read and comforting her through nightmares. On the other hand Rosa provided a fair share of mean spirited nicknames, such as, “Saukerl” and, “Arschloch.” Rosa’s projection of love differs immensely from Hans but she certainly cares for liesel just as much, as shown in this quote, “...But she did love Liesel Meminger. Her way of showing it just happened to be strange.
In the interactions we are exposed to between him and his wife, he is making fair points, such as calling her out for buying unnecessary items, yet she replies in a satirical manner, “It is not a bad thing to want things, Will”, as if it’s a meaningful answer. Will doesn’t respond and the scene ends shortly after in his silence. This proves further that the women in Glee portray themselves as strong beings, who are able to influence the men around them with relative impunity. Perhaps the strongest female in this episode, is Sue Sylvester. Although we see little of her within this episode, her introduction as the Coach of the high school cheerleading team portrays her as an aggressive female, who is strong, bold, and cunning in contrast to the male football coach, Ken, who seems to be disarranged and dimwitted.
Despite starting the conversation about Benedick herself, implying that he is significantly present in her mind, Beatrice is enraged when he was praised, showing that she expects others to agree with her views and opinions. Like Katherina, the boy player of Beatrice was a convincing female on stage, despite her masculine and arrogant behaviour. It could have been for the convincing acting that the same boy player was picked for As You Like It, with a similar character to
