DAY 113: Analyze a comedic play. What makes it funny?
I gotta admit, I wasn’t much of a theater goer and I usually continue to practice this behavior. However, I did recently begin performing in plays as of 3 years ago and I really enjoy it. The stage is a crazy place. So rather analyze a stageplay today and for lack of time today, I decided to divulge my enjoyment for a musical that is inspired by the farces of of the ancient Roman playwright Plautus. It’s a play called “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” that debuted in New York in 1962. A few years later a film was made that I saw during Latin class in high school. It stuck with me as being funny and interesting, even though I can barely watch and sit through musicals. So that’s it. That’s all I got today. It was funny and I got through it without falling asleep during the musical numbers.
Gotta go! Heading to a wedding at Battleship North Carolina.
