    Belle first song- The first scene in the movie and musical is in a small French Village far in the past. The little town has lovey one minded people singing the first song “Belle.” This is the first time the audience meets Belle as she is going to get another book from the bookshop. The audience sees the Disney basic princesses as “she is fair skinned with straight long hair and wide eyes. She is skinny, with a tiny waist and delicate hands. Her voice is charming and she sings beautifully,” (An Analysis of Stereotypes). She looks like she fits in very well into the town and the social norms of the town. The interactions of the town’s people show just how artificial the town really is. The towns have small talk and ask ‘how are you?’ The people do not like that she is…

    Shrektastic Shrek The Musical made a leap of faith when it came from the film by Dreamworks to the highest level of commercial theatre; and it stuck the landing. The audience immerses itself in the backstory the witty princess Fiona, and the giant green ogre, Shrek, who is sent to rescue from a dragon-guarded tower in hopes to get his swamp back. The elements that stand out in Shrek The Musical are the costumes, a heavy amount of singing, and the acting, which all appeal to the 75$ price tag. To…

    Making a Musical Romance It’s an all too familiar trope in the film musical genre: the perfect couple locks eyes across the room. The piano strikes up. The happy couple sings in perfect harmony. They all live happily ever after. It’s a trope so familiar, it provokes audience responses ranging from grudging acceptance to outright hatred. However, like all tropes, the “soulmate song” can be effective when used properly, and truly move the audience to believe in the couple. In order to analyze…

    I am critiquing the film “Dancer in the Dark.” I have seen this movie twice, once on my own in October and again with my family in November. I chose this movie because it is on a list of sad movies I got from YouTube that I peruse when I am in the mood. I watched this movie alone, in my dorm room, on my laptop. The watching process was very smooth and pleasant. I did not have any distractions or interruptions and it streamed perfectly. Towards the end of the film I was so frustrated and…

    The musical Singin’ In The Rain was an enjoyable experience that had myself laughing and following along with the classical music hits. Being completely honest, I’m not a person who would go to a musical on my own freewill, plays just never had my interest. I remember as a kid, my best friend was into musical movies, so had to sit through Chicago and even Singin’ In The Rain and pretended to like them. However, viewing this musical in college with young students as the actors it seemed more…

Satirizing of the Victorian views on marriage and the morals and standards of the upper class creates humour in The Importance of Being Earnest. This is supported by stylistic devices and wordplays. The characters in The Importance of Being Earnest, especially Lady Bracknell, mock the snobbism of the upper…

    I went to see ‘Elf the Musical Jr.’ on Thursday, December 1, 2016. The tickets were $15 For decent seats and in my opinion, the show plus the seats that we had were not at all worth the $15, that we spent.

But, to help you understand in my own opinion as to why ‘Elf the Musical Jr.’ was so bad, let me give you some feedback and get into a little more detail in the next few paragraphs. The first reason as…

    While most films offer a sort of distraction from reality, musicals are often a utopia of wealth and happiness (Belton, 2009). Through dazzling song and dance, they make routine look like pageantry and loneliness feel like individuality. Even the most conservative of musicals transform the everyday into a spectacle, transitioning dramatic tensions into a melodic fanfare. Singing liberates the characters to express themselves in a way that mere words never could, giving them a freedom from the…
