Similar to film and music reviews which analyze and critiqueÿthe whole work, a review of a play or musical should also critique the production as a whole, in addition to its variety of elements.ÿ The purpose of a review is to provide a potential audience with anÿunbiasedÿopinion of the production, supported by facts.This last written assignment requires you to attend one UT Department ofÿTheatreÿand Film production this semester — THE KING AND THE CLOWN or THE INTERNATIONALIST.ÿ This assignment is toÿanalyze and critiqueÿthe production, using theatrical terminology,ÿnot merely ?liking or disliking? the play (do not turn in a rewritten version of the plot summary)Like any written essay, aÿtheatreÿreview should contain an introduction, body and conclusion. ÿElements that could be discussed in this review (but are not limited by) include:introductory material (name of the play or production, playwright, performance location, date)the production?s themes and/or playwright?s voice (what he/she was trying to say)expected audience responsevisual elements (set design, costumes, lighting, sound and/or music) and how they support (or don?t support) the productionartists? performances (actors and their roles, director, designers), including their honesty/believabilitysuccessful moments in the play vs. unclear onesconclusion or overall impression of the productionThisÿtheatreÿreview should be based on the live theatrical performance seen here at UT, not a film version or other school’s production. ÿIn general, your assignment should be typed and proofread, at least 3-4 pages in length.ÿ Think creativity, originality (such as images, links, etc.) and presentational choices (such as Word,ÿPowerpoint,ÿPrezi, audio files, etc.) — reviews are no longer just printed in newspapers or magazines, reviews are also found on television, radio and theÿinternet.ÿ Be careful of spelling, grammar, capitalization, punctuation, and MLA guidelines.ÿ Remember to document any outside sources you use.ÿ Early submissions are always accepted.
