  • Romeo And Juliet With West Side Story - 390 words
    Romeo And Juliet With West Side Story William Shakespeares Romeo and Juliet and Arthur Laurents West Side Story are very similar in comparison. The characters in both these tragic stories are almost symmetric in what kind of role they play and how they interact. Even the plot is generally the same except for the changes made due to the setting. Because of my fascination of middle age Europe, I enjoyed Romeo and Juliet more. Romeo and Juliet is a story of star-crossed lovers whose tragic end show their families the extent of damage that hate can do. They setting of this play is 14th century Verona, Italy. Two wealthy families, Montague and Capulet, have a growing hate for each other. Romeo an ...

  • Romeo And Juliet With West Side Story - 1,640 words
    Romeo And Juliet With West Side Story Andy Warhol once said, "They say that time changes things, but actually you have to change them yourself." Two hundred fifty years passed between the original Romeo and Juliet and the premiere of West Side Story on Broadway in 1957. However, time did not change the message of the story, simply the creators unique visions evolved. Shakespeares delivery of the timeless tale of desperate love in his classic Romeo and Juliet proves to only intensify through retelling and modern interpretation. Audiences cherish Romeo and Juliet as one of the most beloved plays of all time from the Elizabethan Age to the present. Romeo and Juliet have attained the role as the ...

  • Romeo And Juliet With West Side Story - 902 words
    Romeo And Juliet With West Side Story Story are two very similar movies. Though they are alike in many ways, they are also very different as well. The two movies mirror each other all the way until the fight in West Side Story and until Mercutio dies in Romeo and Juliet. When Tony dies in West Side Story and Maria, acting as a "Juliet", the major differences start to show. In Romeo and Juliet, the two lovers both die, in West Side Story, Maria lives. Instead of fighting between families, as the Montagues and the Capulets, West Side Story brings out the gang activity, Sharks vs. Jets. Some of the characters in West Side Story are the same personality-type as the ones in Romeo and Juliet. Thes ...

    West Side Story During my vacation in North Woodstock, New Hampshire, my two friends and I came across The Papermill Theater. An old run down mill, turned into a theater, with lots of history. We all decided to attend the play , West Side Story, hoping it would be a good experience. As we entered the theater my eyes swayed from left to right taking in all the history of the building. I saw old ceilings and walls with different mill machines with in them. I came across the old set up of the building consisting of a rundown stage with many scene props and dusty old chairs. These chairs really stood out, they were all differently designed and all different types. Some were folding chairs while ...

  • West Side Story - 378 words
    West Side Story West Side Story West Side Story was one of the best plays that Kean has put on that I have seen. This play just happens to be one of my favorite movies that I have watched over and over again. I basically memerized all the scenes and songs. But of coarse the play has to be shorter then the movie, so certain things had to be cut out and changed a little bit. For example when the song America is sung in the movie, the guys and girls are going against each other, but in the play it was just girls singing to each other. I think the people chosen for the play perfectly fit their characters. The only person I thought that needed a little bit more work on his acting was the guy who ...

  • West Side Story With Romeo And Juliet - 1,917 words
    West Side Story With Romeo And Juliet What would Romeo and Juliet be like if Juliet hadn't died? What if Paris killed Romeo, instead of vice versa? What if instead of occurring several centuries ago, it took place on the streets of New York City during the 1950s, with a bunch of fresh-faced youths posing as street toughs and dancing and singing their hearts out? Well, just take a look at West Side Story, and you will have your answers. It is impossible for anyone familiar with both texts to not note the obvious major similarities between the two plays. From the opening scenes in both, up through the rumble in West Side Story/death of Mercutio in Romeo and Juliet, the plays mirror each other ...

    ... 120 and the minimum 60. After the Battle 25 Macedonians fell"in the first charge. Alexander had a statue made of each of them. He then erected each statue somewhere near Granicus. He also erected a statue of himself, although he did not even die, let alone in first charge. This was a strange gesture that would never be repeated again. 2,000 of Memnon's mercenaries survived. After the battle they were chained like lions and sent back to forced labor, probably in the mines. This was not a very placatory gesture by Alexander. The reason he gave for it was that "they had violated Greek public opinion by fighting with the Orientals against the Greeks." After his victory, Alexander went across ...

    Gangsterism In The 1920'S The Roaring Twenties,; what a perfect aphorism. It was certainly roaring with music and dance, but it also was roaring with gangsters. In the aspect of gangsterism, the thirties were also roaring. Americans in this time period tolerated criminals, especially those involved in bootlegging. Bootlegging is the smuggling of illegal substances. Bootlegging could have possibly been tolerated because of the recent outlaw of alcohol during this time period, known as the Prohibition. Gangsters were involved in bootlegging, prostitution, gambling, organized crime, and racketeering. Al Scarface Capone, Bonnie and Clyde, and John Dillinger were the headliners of this era. Gang ...
