“The 39 Steps”, is a special kind of Broadway show. These four people change from character to character without losing the audience’s attention and enthusiasm one bit. These actors are so good that they even made the audience laugh without losing their attention on the theme of the play. This is very important in any type of show because actors always want to keep the audience interested and entertained. This was the first show in a while that I have stood awake and paid attention throughout the whole play because of the amount of talent that these actors have that left me in
What a song! As a big Stevie Wonder fan, I was excited to hear this piece as a closing. The ensemble plays the piece gracefully from beginning to the end. I really enjoyed myself at this sponsored event as the music, the ambiance; the liveliness was a great combination. Music being played live should always be appreciated because the future is going downhill as far as appreciating true and live music.
His music flows easily and one could glide across the room so smoothly. When one listen to this piece the waltz comes to mind. The one thing that is not so likeable is his cathedral music because it so sad and the tone is just bland. However, at the age of fourteen he copied a choral piece of the Sistine Chapel and the pope was so impressed with Mozart that he knighted him. The features about Mozart’s music is his passionate about his music and it brings ease, grace, spontaneity and at the same time creates balance, restraint and has perfect proportions.
The laughing, to deep thinking, to the astonishing scene that nobody seen coming, was all part of the experience the audience took part in. The characters were dressed apprioately at first sight for the time period. The 1960’s wasn’t as classy as the modern era. The hair was flowing, the clothes were dragging, and the energy was extravagant. Joey, who played one of the main characters, was one who brought the play to life the most.
Bret Grass has introduced himself to us as a big theatre person. Theatre is truly his passion. When speaking with him, I learned that being on stage being on stage has really helped him with his vocal presence on and off the stage. He never really had a problem speaking to people he doesn’t know. This being the case, would maybe be a reason for his interest in being on the television show, “Saturday
And lastly, Sofia did an awesome job. Due to the fact that I saw the play on Broadway she portrayed Sofia a litter better than the professional actress I was shock and impress. Being that I had class with the actress that played Sofia, Anitra McKinney, I saw I totally different person on change than I did in class. My whole impression on her change after the
This song was very loud and powerful. The Delta Symphony followed this song with “Romance” by Antonin Dvorak, which was my personal favorite song during the concert. I had never heard this song before, but I enjoyed it very much because it was whimsical. There were no boring parts in
Act 2 to me almost felt like it was a live comedy from beginning to end. It went very smoothly in my opinion as I felt that it was written much better than Act 1. Act 2 also held my interest extremely well because now you (the audience) were able to put it together with Act 1, and it made a pretty strong impact on how fast the world moves today. It also showed the significant problems with Internet dating. What a mess that must be, thank God that, that route never entered my mind.
Response Paper: Cabaret Fundamentals of Acting David Waggoner Missouri State University Response Paper: Cabaret The Missouri State University Department of Theatre and Dance’s production of the musical Cabaret was extraordinarily entertaining. That was the consensus of those friends and family that accompanied me to Thursday, April 12th’s performance, and I wholly agree. On the whole, the level of professionalism, in terms of the music, performance and visual impact was stunning and the show itself makes me as excited to write about, as it was to watch and listen to. In responding to the acting performances, I’m going to afford myself the luxury of speaking also to the visual and aural life of the production and how the related production areas might (or might not) have advanced the direction of the production. Although those areas are admittedly not in focus within the context of the class, they are germane to this discussion as it relates to their renderings influencing the way in which the world of the play was made manifest and ultimately the impact those production areas had on the individual performances and how the audience received the characters.
In order for a sitcom to be great, it should be re-watchable. Seinfeld has a number of inside jokes including catch phrases and character flaws which are repeated throughout the episodes. The inside jokes are generally only picked up by dedicated viewers who realise that they’re funny, hence they are necessary in re-watchability. Another factor in a great sitcom is chemistry among the characters. The characters of Seinfeld have such great chemistry that we love to watch them, and feel like a part of it.
