Oh where to begin.How about: “An Evening With [insert one of the names below]”Kander & Ebb (they created Broadway hits such as Caberet, Chicago, Woman of the Year, Kiss of the Spider Woman, Curtains, etc.)Lerner & Loewe (the team that created Brigadoon, Paint Your Wagons, My Fair Lady, Camelot, & Gigi)Gershwin & Gershwin (to name a few films: An American in Paris, Funny Face, Girl Crazy, Shall We Dance, A Star is Born. For Broadway: Crazy for You, Funny Face, Lady Be Good!, My One & Only, Of Thee I Sing, Porgy & Bess, Strike Up the Band)Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber (Evita, Cats, Phantom of the Opera, Jesus Christ Superstar, Starlight Express, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Sunset Boulevard, etc.)Rogers & Hammerstein (State Fair, Oklahoma!, South Pacific, State Fair, Carousel, Cinderella, The Sound of Music, Flower Drum Song, etc.)Stephen Sondheim (West Side Story, Gypsy, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Pacific Overtures, Sweeney Todd, Merrily We Roll Along, Sunday In The Park With George, Into The Woods, Assassins, etc.)Stephen Schwartz (On Broadway: Pippen, Godspell, Wicked; For Disney w/ composer Alan Menken Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Enchanted, also Disney’s Mulan; For DreamWorks: The Prince of Egypt)I could go on, but doing a show based on the works of a composer or collaborative team is very easy to put together and you could even have someone dress up as the composer(s) to include biographical information about each show and how & when they came up with it. I’ve just listed a few of the more popular choices, there are OODLES more out there. Good Luck!!
10 points will be awarded to a detailed answer. comparison of pygmalion and my fair lady? for english i have to write a paper on which film better relates to the original pygmalion play my fair lady(1964) or Pygmalion(1939. provide evidence on which film parallels the play closer on the following elements.plot, characters, setting, and costume. either give evidence directly or a website regarding to the comparison
Writing takes time. It takes a certain time of brain space, too. I have been really busy with work. I wish that work would back off a little.I would rather be reading and thinking and writing than doing all this JOB stuff.But the job stuff pays the bills.I had a chance to listen to PYGMALION by Shaw. That was a great play! All kinds of good stuff, about class tension and social climbing and the place of women and the importance of manners in society.On the back of the package, it says “PYGMALION inspired the award-winning film and stage productions of Lerner and Loewe’s musical, MY FAIR LADY.”I went and got MY FAIR LADY so that I could compare the two. I like musicals.But you know, this was pretty different than the play. THe musical added songs which are very nice. But the story itself is such a practical story.I mean, it is about getting this work done–HIggins has to teach Eliza how to speak.In PYGMALION, Eliza learned very fast and had a quick ear.In MY FAIR LADY, Eliza couldn’t hear the sounds at all until Professor Higgins essentially tortured her inot saying it right. I thought that change to be rather implausible, he didn’t even TRY to explain how sounds are formed. Then, after he’s starved her and been cranky to her all day, she gets it and they dance around sining “The Rain in Spain.” Then, he demands that she stay up and study some more.And she goes all googly and sings “I could have danced all night.”WHAT?! the implication is that she is in love with professor higgins.I fail to see the attraction. He hasn’t done anything nice for her, and he’s done a lot of mean things.It doens’t make sense to me.In PYGMALION, Shaw treats marriage as a much more practical exercise. In fact, on of the lines that are in common show his point of view, “In tottenham court, I was above this. I sold flowers, not myself.”That line seems incongruous in the musical. THe musical has all kinds of massively sappy moments of LOOOOOVVVEEE! Freddie is head over heels, and Eliza is exstatic over Higgins, and Higgins has grown accustomed to her face.It doesn’t hang together quite as well.I think the play was much more complimentary to Eliza, giving her talents that are to her credit. But the musical makes her a patsy, whose only major selling point is how pretty she is.It’s too bad.
