    Jazz Showcase The concert I attended was the Jazz Showcase in Rudder Theatre on Monday June 21, 2004 at 7: 30 p.m. Surroundings Rudder Theatre is a large venue for this Jazz Showcase. There are five sections with fifteen rows deep in each section. The theatre is decorated modestly with solid colors and nothing too spectacular or eye catching. The chairs were covered in a yellowish fabric. The initial backdrop behind the stage was a white backdrop with red and blue lighting. This backdrop would c...
  • Brook's Version Of Hamlet
    1,573 words
    Peter Brook: Why and How In modern theater today, the director is ultimately responsible for the artistic effectiveness of the production. He reviews the script and determines how he wants that play to be performed. In his hands rests the future of the play. Lighting, scenery, costumes, and cast all support and bring to life the productions, under the scrutiny of the director. Modern theater is normally the reproduction of masterpieces of different eras; Hamlet, Romeo & Juliet, The Glass Menager...

  • Poor Production Decision For The Brlt
    459 words
    Aaron A. Aubrey English 2029-12 Mr. Decker 14 Nov 1999 "I Remember Mama" The recent production of "I Remember Mama" by The Baton Rouge Little Theatre left much to be desired in my mind. The real flaw in this unsuccessful production wasn't so much the occasional annoyances and quirks by the cast and director, it was the play itself. I felt that the local talent of The Baton Rouge Little Theatre was wasted on such a droll work. I found it difficult to stay focused on the play and instead found mys...

    893 words
    The Pirates of Penzance A new and original comic Opera by Messrs. W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan, entitled the "Pirates of Penzance, or Love and Duty. It is amazing how two dramatic writers have mastered the ability to amuse the public in such an original manner. This opera had its premiere on December 31, 1879, at the Fifth Avenue Theater in New York with Arthur Sullivan conducting. It opened on April 3, 1880, at the Opera Comique in London and ran for 363 performances. When one thinks of Pir...
  • Most Ill Starred Plays In Theatrical History
    642 words
    "The Comedy of Glam is", "The Scottish Business" or simply "That Play" are just a few of the euphemisms actors use to avoid mentioning the title of William Shakespeare's Macbeth, one of the most ill-starred plays in theatrical history. Indeed, many professionals believe that "The Unmentionable" [another of its nicknames]-with its bloodshed, ghosts, and witchcraft-is one of the darkest dramas ever written. If an actor does happen to mention the name, or quotes from the play while he is backstage,...
  • Viewers Of A Play
    442 words
    QuIP # 1 Questions- Q- In the styles of live performing or television performing which style would be more suited for an average viewer. A- I believe that television as a way of mass producing entertainment has made it more of a low rate form of entertainment than live performances, however when using mass media one can broadcast a show to millions of viewers at one time. This surely proves that in our society that live performances are very rare but well remembered unlike all the ridiculous T.V...

It is frequently infused with sadness, Often involving the deaths of women Chinese drama was written for a popu...
  • Comedic Performance Throughout The Entire Play
    1,518 words
    "In Walks Ed" was the first play I ever attended and it was most enjoyable. I had no idea what to expect from the start. One of the things that first stood out at the theatre was the fact that all the employees were dressed in all black. When I enquired, I found out that they all dress in black so as not to distract the patrons from the entire performance. I was most impressed with the entire feel of the Ensemble Theatre, from the calmness and quietness of the entire area, to its interior design...

  • Original Theater
    426 words
    There is a lot of talk about the great Shakespearean plays, but not many people know of where they were actually performed in his time. Where were they performed? Most of his plays were shown at the Globe Theatre. However, the construction of this theater was not without great toil. In fact, the original theater is no longer standing. Was the Globe Theatre fancy, or was it simple? In 1596, an old friary was converted into a theater. The people around there weren't very open minded and they soon ...

  • Feel Of Ancient Greek Plays
    1,372 words
    While from reading Arnott I got the impression that the way Greek theatre was performed was very effective in the past, I would make many changes to the performance if I were the director of the play. The main thing that I did not like was that there were only three actors on the stage, playing all the characters in the play (not including the chorus). I think this is an interesting way to perform a play, but in the present day I do not think that people would appreciate so few actors. People ha...
  • Best Performance In The Play
    686 words
    'The Glass Menagerie' is a relatively long play (1 hour 50 minutes) by Tennessee Williams, based around a recollection of events in a man's family life. Directed by Peter Green, it was performed in the Bakehouse Theatre, a small, intimate theatre seating only about 50-60 people (quite uncomfortably). As there were only four performers in this play, you got to see each character frequently, which allowed a bond to be formed between yourself and the characters. Tom Wingfield, played by Nathan O'Ke...
  • Several Good Performances In The Play
    591 words
    The frost was on the pumpkin; the wind was wild; and wispy streaks of gray cloud whipped past a luminous waxing Gibbous in the eastern sky. "What a perfect night", I thought as I walked into the John and Angeline Oremus Theater on November 1st to see "Dracula!" On a multi talented and gloomy set designed by Michael Nedza, director Craig Rosen and his cast and crew serve up a sexy and savvy production that is just camp enough not to scare the daylights out of any individual. The play, although no...
  • Play From Text To Performance

    A Midsummer Night's Dream By Rs Essay, A Midsummer Night's Dream By Rs As with every play we read this quarter, we started A Midsummer Night's Dream with only a text. Reading the script is the foundation of Shakespeare, and the least evolved of the ways that one can experience it. There is no one to interpret the words, no body movement o! r voice inflection to indicate meaning or intention. All meaning that a reader understands comes from the words alone. The simplicity of text provides a broad...
  • Very Funny Play
    289 words
    Suddenly, Bob dashes out into the audience and jokingly asks one of the audience members if she would like to catch a movie after the play. This type of this was typical at The Complete Works of William Shakespeare in Samuel Park in Dallas. It was an entertaining comedy with many themes and many plays. The comedy was well performed as well and was very entertaining. The actors did a stupendous job of involving the audience and, at the same time, keeping a comic attitude. The characterization was...
