First, answering two discussion question (each 100 words):
1. Music can function in multiple ways. Sometimes it is used non-diegetically (characters are not aware that they are singing — or are not aware of music at all). Some music is used diegetically (the characters are consciously aware they are singing — or they can hear music). Identify examples of both from the productions we have viewed, and talk about their emotional impacts on the audience.
2. Music is important in the storytelling and establishing the tone of both Oklahoma and Zoot Suit. Compare and contrast the function and emotional impact of music in each work.
Than, talk about your emotional response to the ZOOT SUIT play — and chat a bit about musical theatre. (100 words)
