Aladdin dell'Arte is a whimsical play based on Aladdin. ‘Dell-Arte’ is a term that means the actors improvise from a set of characters and situations. The actors in this play were very good at improvising to the point where much of it did not seem like improv. The actor who portrayed the role of Ibitha Paella Capitano was especially good at his role as he went beyond most people’s normal comfort level when acting. I also enjoyed how there was interaction between the characters and the audience before the play and during the play. The characters would talk to members of the audience, sit next to them, and bring them up on stage.
However, I did think it was too short as it was only an hour. Because of this, I thought that much of the important

From the time you enter the Falk Theatre, until the curtain rises and falls on the production of Picasso at the Lapin Agile, you are in for a treat. The play is an original work by Steve Martin with a running time of 90minutes, which feels more like 30minutes. Aside from the uncomfortable seating, this production is nothing short of wonderful. The Theatre has been transformed from a long movie Theater atmosphere to a quaint surrounding by means of risers that are placed directly on the stage. The new seating divides the old Theater in half and allows for the actors and the audience to share the same space. Not only this atmosphere that makes it wonderful but also the performances, the direction, the design

In the words of Gay McAuley, “for an activity to be regarded as a performance, it must involve the live presence of the performers and those witnessing it…” (McAuley, 2009, cited in Schechner, 2013, pp.38). This statement recognises the importance of both the actor and the audience for something to truly function as a performance. In addition, Lloyd Llewellyn-Jones highlights the significance of the theatrical space and how it can influence an audience stating that “on entering a theatre of any kind, a spectator walks into a specific space, one that is designed to produce a certain reaction or series of responses” (Llewellyn-Jones, 2002, pp.3). The relationship between actor, audience and theatrical space is no less important today than it was at the time of theatre during the Spanish Golden Age and the creation of Commedia dell’arte in Italy. Despite being very close geographically with theatre thriving for both in the same era, sources that explore the social, cultural and historical context of these countries and the theatre styles will bring to light the similarities and differences. This essay will analyse the staging, the behaviour of the audience as well as the challenges the actors faced, and how this directly influenced the relationship between actor, audience and theatrical space.
The film was originally going to be four hours long, broadcast over two nights, however Meyer felt the film had dull moments that didn’t contribute to the overall effect. Meyer’s final cut was two hours and twenty minutes, with the condition that it was aired all in one night. Because the producers were having much difficulty finding sponsors for the film (due to the subject matter), they accepted his condition of airing it on one night. Thus began the six-month
