As the piece went on, I realized that trombones and french horns were doing a wonderful job with their tone, dynamics, and articulation. However, I felt that the flutes and clarinets we drowned out, and they needed to play out more. Additionally, I felt that band was together for most of the performance. Still, it felt like the song was dragging along, I felt that if they had had a little faster tempo the song would have sounded better. The percussion sometimes overpowered the rest of the band, but they played with almost perfect dynamics, and their rhythms were clear, and correct.
Once the play started, everything fell into darkness except the stage, where the lighting was concentrated on, but not on the sides of the stage or the audience, so you knew where your concentration had to go. In approximately half an hour the light became brighter and lit the sides of the stage, where on the left s... ... middle of paper ... ...er females, who represented country citizens and wore more relaxed clothes and did not have to walk and talk that proper. Overall, just looking at how each character was dressed in the play gave you the idea of their personalities and social status. At last, the directing of the play was impressive. In my opinion, everything was well organized.
I enjoyed the second movie scene more because it seemed more casual and it really caught my eye because you don’t know what is going to happen next. I also liked it because it was simple and it didn’t follow the trends of most witch scenes. When I first watched the beach scene I can honestly say that I dislike it, but as I watched it over and over and over and over again I began to notice the little things that made the scene creepy like the squawking seagulls and the mysterious arrival and depart of the witches. The beach seemed like an unlikely place to cast a spell which is why I enjoyed the second movie scene more.
I chose them because I found their relationship to be the most fascinating. Though these two a great performers, I felt a lack of chemistry from them. When they interacted with other actors, they seemed more natural with them than each other. They were supposed to portray friends with benefits, but they only physically contacted each other on a need be basis. The scene where George came to visit Callie after her accident, it seemed like Vaibhav was just reciting lines and not feeling them.
I feel that the other version in my eyes lacked the excitement that was needed to keep my interest. The characters besides Romeo and Juliet didn't really have anything that truly separated them from each other as individuals and was lost in the fight scene to a blur of yellow, red and blue. The scenes were tedious and were dragged out far too long. The only thing I thought seemed well put together was the attention to detail on the costumes. Overall though the replication of Shakespeare's play was very good and believe that people that went to see it would have liked it.
Even though at that particular moment there was a lot of zooming in and out for both characters faces, especially Romeos due to his awe after seeing Juliet, it was not as fast paced and felt very soothing to watch. The close ups on Romeo in this scene showed us viewers his love struck emotions after seeing Juliet. I don’t feel the other directors did such a good job in introducing Juliet to Romeo in such a dramatic manner. When I was watching the camera shot when it was focused on Juliet, it almost felt like the backlighting was completely revolving around her, so basically the use of lighting increased her presence in a dramatic way. When Baz Luhrman tried to in capture this scene the shots were very detailed, we as viewers could see Romeo under the influence of drugs, when Romeo finally encounters Julliet through the glass of the aquarium, the camera started zooming in on both protagonists to show their love struck emotions, but everything seemed way too fast and that took away from the famous
Through December 5th through the 7th, I performed in Thornton Wilder’s play of Our Town. The only sets or props that the actors or actresses used where folding chairs for us to sit in, umbrellas to hide Emily (Julie Dumbler), and flats on both sides of the stage to hide the people behind them. The reason for the lack of set is so the audience can use there imagination of what the town of Grover’s Corner, New Hampshire looks like. All the rest of the props that the actors had to use were pan mimed and acted out to the fullest to make it look real. The only other experience with no set was with Miss Henery in Neodesha and it was a disaster so I didn’t know how well this was going to work out.
In the collection of monologues there are no special effects used i.e. flashbacks, distractions also helps the audience understand the character. The audience also has to use their imagination as other characters are only spoken about and not seen so the audience has to imagine what they look like. Also, as the monologues are only set in one scene, for example Miss Fozzard’s lounge, the different locations described by the characters also have to be imagined. The purpose of the monologue is to entertain, however there is a limit to which effects the producers can afford to use however, many wouldn’t be used in a monol... ... middle of paper ... ... tone of voices of the unseen characters used by Patricia Routledge (the actress) creates a successful character.
This was a wise choice because the theatre Intimate Apparel was shown in is a small theatre upon itself, so to add a multi-purpose stage that allows as a walk way, shop, and... ... middle of paper ... ...because although Esther wore the exact bustier as Mayme, she could not fill it out as Mayme could, and thus she was not what George was looking for. With every bit of detail, even those most would disregard, Ball State Universities’ production of Intimate Apparel brings the audience into the 1900’s and puts them right on stage with the actors. Even if the audience just plays the role of a friend listening to a story, the fact that design of the set, as well as where the play is held brings elements from the play that may have been missed. The color and fabric of the costumes the characters wear carefully contribute to the already delicate symbols written into the play. Truly, through the scenic design, set, theatre, and costumes, the Ball State Universities’ production of Intimate Apparel intricately intertwine the emotions of the play with that of the audience.
This song is from the musical theater style, because it ties in with the story, while also giving you a “break” from the dialogue. This composition would be my favorite because there was a lot going on, while also telling the story of who started the problem. The mood of this song was exciting, which also made it my favorite. While the song lyrics were not necessarily upbeat, the tempo of the song was and it lightened up the mood of the lyrics more so than simply having the instrumentation be dark and the tempo remained constant through the entire song. The orchestra, was in the orchestra pit, so while I could not physically see the instruments, you could hear a lot of percussion.
