For example, during the interaction between Tiresias and Oedipus, the chorus not only supplies the audience with the emotions elicited by two characters, but guides the characters in a pragmatic resolution: “I would suggest his words were spoken in anger, Oedipus…yours too, and it isn’t what we need. The best solution to the

The opportunity to perform as a sultry and stupid Latin man seldom presents itself to a 14-year-old white girl. Yet, in the winter of my 8th grade year, I graced the stage for eleven nights as Aldolpho-- a bumbling Spanish lover -- and fake seduced my best friend for a plot to halt a wedding in the musical, The Drowsy Chaperone. Theatre presents wild opportunities. In the eight years of performing, I sung as an operatic wardrobe, sold women to China as a fake Asian, danced as scarecrow who only need a brain, and much, much more.

On September 16th, 1560, a man named Arnaud du Tilh was executed for adultery and fraud. This execution does not appear to be too unusual a crime for 16th century France until one notes the extraordinary events that preceded it.
