After watching the recording version of Shrek the Musical, I consider that it is a successful production if the purpose of this musical is to amuse audiences and bring them an enduring audio-visual feast. As a musical that is created based on a blockbuster, the basic story framework is without novelty – an ugly but kind-hearted ogre experiences lots of dangers with a friend, saves the princess like a hero and wins her heart in the end. However, I have to admit that Shrek the Musical does a fantastic job to convert a movie into a Broadway show, considering the high level of complexity and difficulty for a team to humanize animated characters and imitate scenes. There are a lot of details, including Pinocchio’s growing nose, in the musical that show off the elaboration. Undoubtedly, the scenery is one of the brightest spot in this musical.
Albert Einstein once said, “I believe the most important mission of the state is to protect the individual and make it possible for him to develop into a creative personality.” This quote is truly applicable to the short film “La Luna”. Throughout “La Luna,” a young boy named Bambino experiences many difficulties and arguments with his father, Papȧ, and his grandfather, Nonno. Bambino is coaxed into following alongside his father and grandfather’s footsteps-- sweeping away the stars. However, towards the end of the film, Bambino becomes confident with himself by taking risks and developing as his own person. Although others’ influences may inspire creativity for the better, Enrico Casarosa’s short film, “La Luna,” indicates that creativity comes from a person’s individuality.

Through the movie, I can image how boys and young men struggle to live with their true-life in American controversial of being a real man. The Mask You Live In, show all the pressure from the media, their friends, and the grown people’s life. All the boys and man faced with some messages provide them to hide their real emotions, built up the idea that women are only for sexual conquest instead viewing women are friends, and allow men to communicate anger with other by violence. All the controversial about gender associate with race, class, their situation, creating a confusing of problems all men and boy must to be a man.
The musical “Treasure Island” by Robert Louis Stevenson, adapted by Nicolas Billon, and directed by Mitchell Cushman, and the dramatic play “Timon of Athens” by William Shakespeare and directed by Stephen Ouimette, are both great shows in their own right. “Treasure Island” is a delightful lighthearted musical with catchy music and moments worthy of laughter. Whereas, “Timon of Athens” contains more mature themes with a somber atmosphere and leaves its audience with food for thought. This version of Stevenson’s musical starts with a young boy, who goes into a fantastical journey to find treasure inside a pirate fairy tail that his late father used to read for
In the first chapter, after Nick left Daisy’s house at night, he saw a handsome man standing in the lawn. It was the first time he saw Gatsby.

As the content of story develops, Gatsby described his dream to Nick that he loved Daisy and hoped one day he could escape with her from America.
Both verses speak about this, repeating the words “trying to find” referring to the constant search for belonging and a place to fit in. The chorus, however, encourages people to be free with themselves, using the repetition of, “at least I am free.” The music video of the song flashes between a young boy, who is bullied and is looking for inspiration, and a man who the viewers come to realise is the future form of the boy. The boy finds a man who has a pet bird and finds joy in watching his bird fly and be free, alone in the sky. The video then flashes forward to the boy (now a man) finding the same freedom by jumping off of a mountain top and gliding through a valley. This video fits the message of the song, particularly the chorus saying, “at least I am
The song pearl in the begging is a new song. He hears this when he gets the pearl out of the clam he sees it and thinks that its so pretty and thinks of so many things he can do with it. Carmen Twillie, Lebo M. - The Lion King –Circle of Life connects with this part of the book because it's like a new life for him when he sees his life in the pearl.

As they were heading south to shore line, Cormac McCarthy illustrates the world as something that “used to be” (Pg.182). Moving south only means hope to the boy when he found a map it brought goosebumps to the father. The map symbolizes the similarity between the boy and the man because they both enjoy maps: “he poured over maps as a child” (Pg.182). The similarity between the father and son is like all others in modern today. When we find connections it gives us happiness and very big hope of one day connecting again.

Music can bring the brightest of joys that keeps us moving through our dull and boring lives. An example of this joy is Ishmael Beah’s life as a boy soldier in his book A Long Way Gone. As he tells you his story, he tells of his dance group with his friends, the times he heard music in the middle of war, and how music saved him from the madness that brewed within him. Music has the unique ability to create peace in a person’s life despite the difficulties surrounding them, and to bring a constant reminder of who they are as a person. Before Ishmael was thrown into the chaos of war, he and his brother and friends were part of a rap dance group.
