“APO SHOW” Out of all the plays, I think this was by far the best one to me, just because of the different mini plays, and the comedy that came from them all. The first show I would like to discuss would be “Sure Thing”. I really enjoyed this one. This play was mostly about this guy trying to pursue this woman, and he starts off badly a few times so a bell is rung for him to begin again. This one had a lot of humorous moments in it. They were both very funny, especially the guy. I think they had a mutual like towards each other and it led them to go on a date to the movies. In the end, what he was trying to pursue, he finally got, but it just wasn’t the right timing for him in when her first attempted to ask her on a date. He also had to change up his conversation so it could be more respectable to the girl Betty. The second play was not as exciting as the first. I do not think it was as funny as the first one also because it was not as exciting to watch also. It involved one character, which was Mitch, he was talking to the crowd about a type writer, but comes to the conclusion that he is a typewriter himself, In this play he is trying to pursue something himself also, but I feel like he doesn’t know how to pursue this certain something. This something turns out to be a piece of paper, and in the end he exchanges names with this piece of paper. The difference between this play and that play is that he wasn’t trying to pursue this something at first until he seen it after explaining to the audience on how he is a typewriter. The third play “Foreplay, or the Art of the Fugue” was similar to the other three because it consisted of a pursuit also. Three guys are trying to run game on these girls so they can end up having sex with them at the end of the night. They take them on this circular golf course and use their famous lines they always use but they are starting to miss shots that they aren’t always missing, and the girls are asking questions that are confusing them and deviating them from their plan for the night. I think these three plays have different styles of pursuit but in the end they all end up getting exactly what they want, not just when they wanted it. The fourth play was the only one that I did not really understand, but it was still funny. But, it did somewhat tie into the theme of the pursuit of something. I don’t know if this tied into the theme of timing and pursuit but a man named Phillip walked in a bread shop in the pursuit of some bread, by the way he was smelling it, but he sees someone, whom used to be his lover and at that moment it distracts him from getting his bread and they start to sing a song about if this guy that this woman fell in love with. Then eventually in the end he ends up getting his bread. I still thought maybe I interpreted this wrong but it did somewhat tie into the theme of the other ones but a different life situation. The fifth play, I thought The Philadelphia was funny also, because the two guys were funny as the other casts. Mark comes in upset about how everything is going wrong in his life, and he wants it change at that moment, but it doesn’t and the guy he is meeting Al explains to him that he is in Philadelphia and how that you have to relax and ask for the opposite of everything to get what he wants, and he starts to follow those instructions and everything starts to change dramatically for him, but bad things start to happen to Al. In the end, the mark finally gets what he was pursuing, which was a change in his luck. In the sixth show, “English Made Simple” this speaker is trying to help these two people work on being able to say what they feel when they see each other. At first the two were not able to say what they needed to say to each other. As they press on they are eventually able to express their feelings to each other. This theme ties very much with the rest, because all three characters were in pursuit of a goal. The speaker’s was to get the two people to express their feelings, and the two people’s goals were to express themselves. In the “Variations on the Death of Trotsky” Trotsky’s wife reads to him out of the encyclopedia that he will die the next day because he was smashed in the head. Trotsky is trying to find out before he dies for good, which smashes him in the back of the head and why. He eventually finds out that it was Ramon, they guy who works in their garden, but ends up being an enemy to him. In the end, he says a speech to his wife and eventually dies with his questions answered; he also was in pursuit of something. In the play “The Universal Language,” this young girl decides to join a class in pursuit of learning a different language and to get confidence in her to speak up and lose the stutter that she has. The teacher, Don at first was not going to teach her until he finds out her situation and he has an instant attraction to her, because she understands his language. She learns a great bit about this language to come to find out that it is not real, but she forgives him because she developed the confidence to speak without a stutter, and learn a new language and they end up together by the end because she also gained feelings for him. The last show, “Words, Words, Words,” was one of the funniest, but I didn’t really understand if monkey people were pursuit was to somehow leave the facility they were in or to type some words in the typewriter. During the scene they are discussing ways that they could be released out of that place and why they cannot seem to get any words on the typewriter even though their vocabulary was extremely high, which was weird to me, but it was extremely hilarious. By the end of the play, Kafka eventually start to come up with words to type on the typewriter, and the guy monkey at the end, I think his name was Swift, but he starts to type also. These nine poems all have the same themes that correlate with each other. These poems are different situations that involve love, one-night stands, death, low self-esteem, and problems with producing in at the right time. The styles are all different, because of the time period and situations. The overall theme that ties them all together; I feel like is that a person will never get what he wants right then or there, but if they work hard at it they will get what they are pursuing, and maybe a little more. Timing and hard work are key things in life.…...

Radio Show

...away, he sold papers and shoveled coal, then he played music and sang to make a living. His career really started when he was seventeen. He played in dive bars until the 1920s when he left New Orleans and played in St. Louis where he joined Joe Oliver and his band. This is one of my favorite songs by him and I know that it’s a crowd favorite for all. I’ll let Louis Armstrong introduce this song himself, here’s What a Wonderful World. What a Wonderful World http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nGKqH26xlg&feature=related That song is a classic and it has been redone by many different artists. This is still my favorite version of this song and I hope you all liked it as well. The way he sings his songs puts chills through my bones and it shows he can not only play a trumpet but he can sing with such emotion that you feel what he feels. The next artist I have for you to listen to is Miles Davis. He was born in Alton, Illinois. His father was a dentist. His mother wanted him to learn how to play the piano; she was a capable blues pianist but kept the fact hidden from her son. Another interesting thing about Davis is that when he was a boy his family owned a ranch in northern Arkansas where he learned how to ride horses. He began studying music when he was thirteen years old. By sixteen he was a member of the music society and played professionally when he wasn’t in school. After high school he was accepted into Julliard School of Music in New York. He dropped out of Julliard......

The Tebow Show

...The Tebow Show: New Drama in NYC This upcoming NFL season promises to be one of the more entertaining years in the last decade. After the recent, and may I mention second, Superbowl victory by the New York Giants over the Patriots, the stage is set for more drama in New York. With the recent acquisition of Tim Tebow, and all the baggage that comes with him, the Jets may have just stirred up the hornet’s nest. Last year in Denver, Tebow started most of the season after a sluggish start by Kyle Orton, and because he was demanded by the fans. He went on to win eight games in a row using some impressive fourth quarter heroics. Unfortunately for young Timmy, his head coach John Fox, and former Bronco quarterback John Elway, never came around. During the off season, Tebow was traded to the New York Jets just after Denver acquired Peyton Manning. So, was this a good move for New York? In a place where fans are simply unforgiving, as a head coach, wouldn’t you want as much stability as possible? Speaking from personal experience, I know head coaches want as much consistency as possible in every position, but even more so in a quarterback. As any fan who watched ESPN or either of Chief – Bronco games last season can attest to, Tim is not exactly the poster child for consistency. Going 6-22 for 60 yards one game, and then 10-21 for 316 yards and 2 TDs (one being the dramatic game-winner in OT against the Steelers), are not the numbers coaches want to......

A Cooking Show

...What is Cooking Show? A TV cooking show is a television program that presents the preparation of food, in a kitchen on the studio set.

Reality Shows

...Reality Shows Are reality shows completely real or not? According to the Free Online Dictionary, “reality show” is “a television show in which members of the public or celebrities are filmed living their everyday lives or undertaking specific challenges.” Nowadays, most TV programmes are reality shows in which different people show how they live their lives. In some cases, these programmes are created to show how great or how miserable people’s lives are, and so catch the viewers’ attention. This essay aims to discuss whether reality shows are more real than other programmes on TV or not. On the one hand, as the people in reality shows are not actors or actresses, viewers may identify with them. These shows are based on people’s real lives, so their aim is to show the problems or plans that these people have to face every day of their lives without acting it out. Most of these problems are problems that any person could have, so it is easier to the viewers to identify and continue watching reality shows. Moreover, viewers, by watching these shows, may find solutions to their own problems, which are similar to the ones on the reality show. On the other hand, even though reality shows are not scripted, the situations shown in these programmes are deliberated selected to make people watch them. Producers carefully select and sometimes create situations that may interest the viewers. As a consequence, viewers might find that people in reality shows have exciting lives and......

...typical radio game show, which asks listeners to provide questions to the experts to answer lively and could win five dollars for the questions being used, ten more dollars if the experts don’t answer correctly. After listening to the mp3 of the 1939 episode, I find the range of the types of questions is so wide that there are all kinds of difficult and unfamiliar but very interesting questions. For example, there is one question that asks the experts to come up with the last name of some famous people from their first and middle name, and to my surprise, the experts got three names right out of four, which is so amazing. What’s more, there is another question that asks the experts to say the adjectives of some nouns, which include several unfamiliar pairs, like the adjective of “aunt” is “amita” and no expert knows the answer. Also, there are questions about recognizing the music pieces and current news on the newspapers. Most of the time, the host and the experts try to make the show fun instead of just telling the answers, which won’t let the listeners feel boring. The wide range of the questions not only can attract different kinds listeners, but also make the listeners learn about some unfamiliar knowledge. Both of these ensure listeners learn and have fun at the same time, that’s why game show gets so popular. The show also has its own way of making money. Its sponsor, Canada Dry, pays the prize to listeners and on the other hand, in the middle of the show, there is a......

Show Planning

...Organizers You can be the sole show organizer or it can be a joint venture with another group. Whichever way you decide to go, there is a lot of face-to-face coordination involved. Also, it may be inconvenient to get everybody to together at a meeting on the same day. But you will need to make sure that everybody knows what’s going on and be reminded of their role and responsibilities. You’re probably wondering how to accomplish that because coordinating people is a major feat itself. Here’s where Atlanta Antique Car Club comes in with those hard-to-find resources.

Fashion Show

...“Fashion Show” A fashion show is an event put on by a fashion designer to showcase his or her upcoming line of clothing during Fashion Week. Fashion shows debut every season, particularly the Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter seasons. This is where the latest fashion trends are made. In a typical fashion show, models walk the catwalk dressed in the clothing created by the designer. Occasionally, fashion shows take the form of installations, where the models are static, standing or sitting in a constructed environment. The order in which each model walks out wearing a specific outfit is usually planned in accordance to the statement that the designer wants to make about his or her collection. It is then up to the audience to not only try to understand what the designer is trying to say by the way the collection is being presented, but to also visually deconstruct each outfit and try to appreciate the detail and craftsmanship of every single piece. A wide range of contemporary designers tend to produce their shows as theatrical productions with elaborate sets and added elements such as live music or a variety of technological components like holograms, for example. Types of Fashion Shows 1. Ready-to-Wear Ready-to-wear shows feature more practical, down-to-earth looks that the mainstream population might want to buy. Many middle-class name brand retailers draw inspiration from the ready-to-wear looks of high-end designers, including Gucci,......

Apo Committee

...After two semesters being with APO, I have had a great but somewhat limited role within the organization where I actively participated in LFS events, but found myself to be lacking in leadership roles as I did not hold any position nor was part of any committee. I wanted to change that pattern because I wanted to give back more to the fraternity itself as well as meet more of the great members in it. While reading the description for the various committees for APO, Service External really stood out for me because it encompassed the part I loved the most about the fraternity which was the many service events and projects it has. Having attended a wide range of service events from the Petsmart Adoption to Football Staffing, I loved the wide range of opportunities APO has when it comes to giving back to the community and nation. An idea I have regarding service events is to have events that correlate directly to special days related to good causes. An example is on February 4, which is World Cancer Day, events can be created where brothers can write cards to cancer patients and/or visit local cancer patients. Doing so can create a sense of excitement where brothers can expect new events regularly, while raising awareness for many different good causes. Moreover, I want to work together with other members to maintain the relationships that we've had with various organizations to continue the volunteer work that we do with them while making the process more organized....

However, it is called Show Business for a reason, and that is because it is the Business of Show. Any successful business must have a well organized management system in place, and even though it may seem different at first glance there are many standard management practices utilized in Show Business just like any other. Management organization within a company in Show Business takes planning, organizing, staffing, leading, and controlling functions to provide a quality production and ensure audience satisfaction.

NETworks required extensive planning to become one of the largest producers of Broadway tours in the United States.

...The article “Business is Show Business: Management Presentations as Performance” written by Brigitte Biehl-Missal is the result of a study done by the author from 2003 to 2009 of annual general meetings (AGM), press conferences and analyst meetings. The purpose of this study was to compare and contrast these types of organizational meetings/communications with the theatre and to understand more about how all of the elements that go into a meeting impact the final results and participants perception of the meeting. Important to note is how theatre techniques are used in performance situations to create experiences because “…aesthetic techniques increasingly are employed in organizations for controlling and influencing employee behaviors and external audiences.” At these major corporate functions, what could be considered unimportant details by some (lighting, colors, stage presence, and proximity to name a few) could influence the outcome of the meeting and help to determine whether the audience hears the intended message or takes away a completely different experience. This “theatre theory” discussed by Biehl-Missal focuses on elements that are typically thought to be part of dramatic activities such as scenography, lighting system and music, clothing, style of performing, and rhetoric. The article discusses how at AGMs, management can use a white spotlight on the speaker to give the impression of truth or trustworthiness. In contrast, management could cast the......

The Truman Show

...The Truman Show There are many different films and genres, but there is one film that both provides a different outlook and is entertaining at the same time. The Truman Show is a movie that is about a man named Truman Burbank whose entire life was televised and set up since birth without his knowledge, which eventually realizes due to a series of events. This TV show was created by a man named Christof, who is in charge of Truman’s life, the actors around him and the enclosed city he built for Truman, called Seahaven. The Truman Show is a good film because of the psychological effect by the idea of the film, the difference between the real world and a perfect world, and the many religious connotations with it and allusions to God. One way this movie psychologically affects our perspective and helps us become a bit more aware because the movie shows Truman Burbank as a normal, regular person whose life was completely setup by a director. Similarly, humans were placed on this earth so perfectly, that everything feels normal with no sign of suspicion that could alter the vision of life. This movie also brings a sense of paranoia, by feeling watched at all times and to confuse the people in one’s life as actors, just like in the movie. Of course, those are just the temporary effects of watching such a movie, as with any other movie that alters the thought process. It seems as if the creator of the show, Christof, really wanted to prove that the world he created is safe and......
