Acting Class

Although last class I learned many new acting techniques, that I believe in the future will help me in studying the field of acting, I know there are also many different techniques that I will have to learn in the future. Such as cooperation with fellow peers in order to create a better picture as a whole in terms of the audience's viewpoint.

Dead Man Walking

The play was amazing. I was so glad to experience this story. I had never seen it before and was truly moved by what I saw. Even though I knew what was going to happen in the play because people told me I was still affected the same way I would have been had I not know the play. (that was a very bad sentence) The actors were great and the use of video was an interesting twist that I have never seen before.
I went and saw the play on Saturday and I guess I don't really know what to think. I guess I was supposed to like it by the sounds of the other posts but I found myself wondering why someone would even want to make this terrible story a play. I think it is bad enough that it actually happened but to have it thrust upon people as a play (which most people go see for entertainment) was rather strange. So if someone is looking for high praise for the show, I really wouldn't look here because I just didn't get the point. I don't want to watch something so terrible being used as a play.
