The characters grew to understand each other and the audience learns more and more about the individuals. Perhaps, the motive for that said characters verdict or backstory on the matter. A few characters were highly stereotypical and the actors did a worthy job in portrayed them as accurately as possible. For such a short production, it was an extremely elaborate one. The absence of an intermission also played an important role in keeping the audience submerged in the action.
The play did well in the areas of acting, set/props, and special effects (including sound and lighting). First of all, the acting in the play had much to be praised. Right off the bat, it was apparent that there was a great deal of talent on-stage. When Jakes (portrayed by Antonio Cayonne) introduced the premise of the story in the first scene of the play, the accent was extremely well done and realistic enough for the audience to delve right into what he was saying. All of the actors did an extraordinary job in mastering the accents.
It was well worth doing; as I cant remember a moment that was not full of laughter from the audience, as this play kept everyone on the edge of their seats. They did a fantastic job finding actors and actresses who did outstanding with their rolls. Any escapist would thoroughly enjoy this production. I would highly recommend this play to others, but they must see it quickly as it will soon be out of the Venice Theater. Personally I about rolled out of my seat laughing and thoroughly had a great time, as the play achieved its goals.
The play uses tragic irony to keep the audience interested. This story could have been written in any time period and still been able to engage the audience. This is exactly why the play has been around for so long. The story is so good that no matter what way you present it will work because the foundation of the story works so well. The thing I think that is mostly gained from an updated version is the technology and the overall appeal to the viewer.
Not only did the costumes, setting, characters, acting, lighting and direction, actively portray the play but they contributed into making it more lively and interesting. The choices of these facts had a positive impact on the production. The show possessed humor, direction, and creativity, three factors essential in putting on a great performance. I personally enjoyed the modern rewrite of the play and favored the bright colors of the costume, settings and character development. Overall I feel that this play had an excellent performance and demonstrated an important moral in life!
God of Carnage is a well written play, and the production I had the pleasure of seeing didn’t disappoint in the slightest. All the appropriate elements were present whether those elements fell to the actors or the director.
Also, his plays are always meaningful, constructive and usually send powerful messages. Although, the author is a famous writer, I found his books easy to understand because his plays are mostly not too mysterious. Although, his writing is sometimes weird and crazy, they are never in any way confusing. Even if, I struggle to understand the play at the beginning, I found my way back by the time I reached the end because his books are most of the time self-explanatory. Furthermore, I think this play was also a success because this play was really funny, but it was also emotional.
Lala, Sunny and Peachy are just a few of the characters that were cast in the play. Be assured, however, that all the others were also suitably cast for their roles in the production. Thus, making the character selection only one of the key elements in the production’s success. When it came to the dialogue of the production and the understanding of it the performers again did an excellent job. Their gestures and vocal elements all aided in the production’s success and were all fittingly used by the characters.
They dressed nice and always had... ... middle of paper ... ...“personality.” This play was one of the greatest historic plays of all times. Everyone wanted to come see this play because of how realistic it was. They loved how Shakespeare included a real life aspect of the play. Another positive was how educational it was. Audiences loved when plays had a point other than entertainment.
I think that the play ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ performed in DIA was very successful as it perfectly incorporated all the elements of drama together and it all worked together well. The elements of drama used in this play was; set, costume, sound, lighting, characters & characterization, units of action, dialogue, pacing & timing, director’s decisions, and special effects.
