Interview with my director
|Scooped by Lauren Sovel|
What do you think is the change in musical theatre from when it first originated to now?
" The vocals. Period. Considering musical theatre originated from poppers, the change has been drastic. I think that the vocals have changed the most, but the choreography has also changed. It was nevevac out dancing or mothat around the stage, but now choreography seems to be one of the most important parts of a show.
Do you believe that society cared more about musicals theatre then, or now?
It all depends on how you look at that topic. If you consider caring about musical theatre worrying about the technique and difficulty of the show, then I would say that society cared more back then. Big you look at it from the point of view of how popular a show is, how many views it gets, or how much money it makes then I would say now.
How do you think musical theatre has made an impact on society?
In my opinion, not much at all. it may have affected a small part of society, but as a whole I don't think it has made much of an impact at all.
how do you think society has made an impact on musical theatre?
Definietly much more than the other way around. Societys impact on musical theatre is huge. In my opinion more negative ways than positive. Is not about the background of the show anymore, or the technique involved, but more about what society wants to see. Not that thshouldn't important, but that's not what theatre should be about.
How is high school theatre different than "the big time"?
It's not. Simple as that. I treat you kids no different than I would with professionals getting paid to perform a show. The age may be different but I treat everyone the exact same when directing a show.
