How To Write A Personal Reflection Of The Musical

Improved Essays
Overall I thought the experience of The Musical of Musicals (the Musical!) was unique because of how they had the stage configured as a thrust with some audience members sitting on stage. Before the show began Brittney Hines who was the audience concierge came over to the group of people I came with and asked us our favorite musicals which was a nice touch. Although I have had the opportunity to see many musicals performed live or the movie versions, of the musicals mentioned I only understood the references from The Phantom of the Opera. It would have made the play more enjoyable had I understood all the references but, it was still entertaining. The acting style was presentational; when they actors and actresses were singing and speaking they gave looks and gestures. The pacing for the play was very appropriate because each act took the same plot and fit it to a specific musical. This means the play needed to move along quickly to keep it from being boring which it did. I liked the fact that the story was slightly different every time and …show more content…
That being said I would thoroughly enjoy going to see this play again after seeing all of the original performances and then being able to compare it to The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) because I would fully understand all the references being made. This plays defiantly could have been performed without an intermission and I think it would be nice to see it done that way because it’s not a long play. But I feel if there wasn’t an intermission in the play people would have to get up and go to the bathroom during it which would be distracting because of how the seating was set up. Overall I think this was a good production to be put on by Longwood because even though I hadn’t seen all the plays mentioned it was still a comedic production that I would see

    Next, there is music in the production during the intermissions of the play, the music serve the job well and match the vibes of the production well. And in terms of rhythm in the production I thought Lottie did the best job for her consistency of being funny, ability to connect with other characters, and ability to sing and just overall improve the play. Which is something I did not get before going to the live production, was the ability to truly see what a character…

    I really enjoyed watching Driving Miss Daisy because of its ability to remain entertaining throughout its entirety. I was also able to learn more about how powerful and important both set and light designs are. Without these two designs a play would not be that captivating to watch, but rather dull and uninteresting. It is fair to say that lightening makes a play more alive. It would be extremely challenging for an audience to watch a play without the use of light.…

    The sound quality met my standards also. I think since “The Side Show” is a musical then all of the aspects music had to be up to par. The costumes and the music drew most of my attention. The production of the play also deals with the designs of the performance. All the costumes were amazing, but my favorite costumes had to be the fortune teller.…

    Kimberly Belflower is an original playwright as she shows her dark thoughts through her two main characters. With its great use of imagination, the lights, costumes, and background music do a great job of portraying its wildness; however, the script itself needs more background and smoother transitions. As an audience member it was great seeing the great work and thought that was put into the play. Overall, the play has the potential to be something great, it just needs works. Works…

    On the other hand, I do prefer to watch a film of a musical more because I constantly know what I will receive every time and the characters become more familiar as I watch the musical each time. I think musicals on film offer more perfection and I think it is nice to just sit and watch people give their best even if they may have redone that scene multiple…

    For this reason, I think the costume designer did a great job crafting garments that spoke for the character. I believed that in this play, the articles of clothing that they were wearing helped show their personality traits without having the characters saying a word. Furthermore, Andrew Jackson’s costume was a focal point for me because of the “spunk” that was added to his costume. With the bling, rhinestones, and the emo black eye I think the added designs helped the audience portray Andrew Jackson in a more modern environment. Also, I think the lighting designer did a great job in the scenes when the “Live Band” was playing and the concert scene.…

    I was blown away by the riveting performance of the opera. It was also very helpful that they provided English subtitles on the screens in front of the seat. I had expected they to pass out a pamphlet resembling a program that would just have the words in English, but the screens were a lot more practical. It moved along with the actors so you did not have any trouble figuring out which lyrics went with what voice and at which time. Another surprise was how engaged I became with the show.…

    The Romeo and Juliet 1968 version is a movie you should watch if you are a new Shakespearean learner. This movie shows and demonstrates almost everything that you would feel if, you were to see Shakespeare put on a play. In my opinion the chemistry between all of the characters was phenomenal. It made me feel as if I was apart of the movie and saw all of this unfold in Verona. Also the comic relief that the Nurse and Mercutio supplied was phenomenal in my perspective.…

    From the first song of, “Defying Gravity” to the last song of “Let it Go”, it was a wonderful experience. Menzel not only entertains, she is interactive with the audience and comes into the crowd. I never thought that a famous artist would reach out to her fans that way to me it was very surprising. The audience was very pleased and happy for the way Menzel would interact with her audience. Menzel sang a song called, “Take Me or Leave Me” from the musical “Rent” and did a duet with the audience.…

    The benefits about attending a live theater can be for entertainment, can create new with family or friends, and an escape from the real world. Comparing a live theater to watching a musical on film, live musicals offer a different atmospheric experience. This is done by the way actors feeding off the energy from the audience during applause, are in a way interacting with characters, creating a sense of connection with the characters, and can feel the music around you. On the contrary movie musicals being able to have technical advancement, every scene of the film is reshoot until it is perfect, film makers can make the audience become absorbed to the screen, and lastly right in the action, not seeing it from a distance. There were no negatives to the musical Curtain because the actors all were in touch with their characters and everyone in the audience was engaged in the show.…
