    The live concert I chose to examine was Wicked. My family and I went and saw it on October 15th at Century II at the 2:00 p.m. showing. Inside the venue, there’s around over 30 rows of red seats on the main floor, along with a balcony with perhaps a handful of rows (I didn’t get a chance to see how many). The walls are a beige color and narrow from the back to the front in a “V” formation to draw focus onto the stage. The stage had an industrial look on each side with a large map of the land of Oz. The Emerald City Palace was in the center of this map and was done with green glitter and then further highlighted by a green spotlight. There was also a large metal dragon protruding from the top of the set, keeping watch with its ruby eyes. The audience was dressed in attire that I would say was semi-formal. Women primarily wore dresses and skirts, or perhaps a nice blouse. Men wore slacks or khakis, with button down shirts or polo’s. The general behavior of the audience was very respectful and calm, except for maybe at the merchandise stand – but even then, I wouldn’t describe that as crazy. There was a flutter of excitement amongst the audience for what was to come, with an exception for the odd disgruntled husband who were clearly dragged along. The performer’s…

    that’s why he seemed so appealing to me whilst reading. He would go from being nice to having a hard backbone in this story. Also, the fact that he had a different form of magic than everyone else set him apart, which is one of the reasons that he stood out rather than the rest of the witches. 2 I can predict, based on the ending of the story that Amy and The Order will set out to take down the evil tyranny taking place in Oz. Amy doesn’t have anywhere to go back to in Kansas, after the tornado…

    This song "Ain't No Rest For The Wicked" was released on June 16, 2008 by Relentless Records. This was their third song that they've created and the song was released as a CD single. The lead singer Matt Shultz was inspired to make this song from a co-worker that was a drug dealer at the time. When Matt asked him why he was doing these things he responded with "There's no rest for the wicked. That quote inspired Matt to create the song that is very popular today. Because the song has become very…

    As an audience member there are lots of “hats” that I tend to wear such as the role of a student and a woman.One of the recent theatrical productions I have witnessed recently has been The Wizard of Oz. While watching this play I have I was reminded of being told that I must go out in search of.

    The two lay in a heap on the ground. They took a moment to get their heads straight before getting up, brushing themselves off, and looking around. A sort of half-smile plastered itself to Vella’s face as she looked around. It felt like she’d spent so much time in Oz that she’d forgotten what home looked like. But she hadn’t. She hadn’t forgotten. She never would. A gentle breeze stirred the air, rustling the branches above their head. The branches of the tree that she knew all too well. “We…

    Much like Dorothy in the Land of Oz, I too was lost. Growing up, I was always the pariah in most situations. My mother was of African American descent, while my father was Caucasian, making me a mixed child or in other words a mulatto. Being a mulatto, I looked different from the rest. I had frizzy, curly hair, while my other classmates had long,straight hair. I’d constantly beg my mother to let me straighten it, just so I could resemble the rest of my classmates. I could never understand why…

    Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer produced the American musical fantasy film, The Wizard of Oz in 1939. Victor Fleming directed The Wizard of Oz, and was the first to direct a film with Technicolor using a 3-strip color process. All movies at this time were filmed in black and white, so The Wizard of Oz was a sure crowd pleaser because of its color experience. It was said that the commercial for The Wizard of Oz was shown in black in white, so that moviegoers could experience the first ever color movie with a…
