theater live performance analysis paper
to write one performance analysis paper.
1. To watch a live theater performance. There is a
special connection that develops between the actors and the audience during a live performance. This really only happens when the two groups are in the same space with their full attention on the performance. write it in enough details!!!!
2. Answering to the following questions:
2.1 What are the play and the production of that play attempting to do? (These are the intentions…)
2.2 Have the intentions been achieved? (Provide supporting evidence for your conclusions.)
2.3.Was the attempt worthwhile?
2.4.What did you like and WHY? (OPINION)
2.5.What did you NOT LIKE and WHY (OPINION)
To better answer the questions above, please see the “preparation” document I attached for being a reviewer/critic!!!!!!!
Include the title of the play/performance and where and when you attended the performance in your paper.
Include your personal evaluation of the success of the production based on your observations of the quality of work from ALL of the collaborators (PLAYWRIGHT,
DIRECTOR, MUSICAL DIRECTOR (if musical), ACTORS/PERFORMERS,
CHOREOGRAPHER (if musical), LIGHTING DESIGNER, SCENIC DESIGNER, COSTUME
DESIGNER, PROPERTIES DESIGNER.
Please DO NOT focus the paper on the PLOT of the show you viewed. A complete plot description is not necessary and will have a negative effect on your grade
6.Be certain to include specific examples to support your opinions. REMEMBER- if you claim something to be true it is best to give an example or supportive fact as to why you can make this claim.
