  • Singin In The Rain Analysis

    by saying Singin’ in the Rain is hands down one of my favorite musicals and that my opinion of this film is probably highly biased.

It’s not an overly vibrant film but the use of bright colors throughout the film emphasizes the glamour of Hollywood, which is a large component of this film. The colors also add a dreamlike sense to the movie, which I…

  • An Analysis Of Everybody Ought To Have A Maid By Sondheim

    is an interesting musical, in that it is a musical that is markedly different from most of Sondheim's other works. "Everybody Ought to Have a Maid" is a good example of a silly song that Sondheim wrote without any particular reason, other than for the audience's amusement. Though the song does add humor, it is not necessary to the musical, overall, and it would likely be just as good without it. Its melody is memorable enough, but it does not contain any truly revolutionary musical compositions…

With Hairspray being a movie that I had watched on Netflix, it was obviously not live and this also contributes to the differences of going to an actual live production in a theater. These differences help us distinguish between the realities of the products of a musical and the products of a play. Hairspray’s acting styles were…
