Many factors contribute to having a great theatrical performance, an actor, a theatrical teacher, Robert Curtis Shields, explains the importance and importance to himself personally, a,”Production value and design aesthetic, performance, story, among others. Each one can be vital to a performance’s success. Personally a great theatre performances forces me to contemplate my humanity by observing another’s journey, by shortening the distance between two ideas through metaphor, and/or by demonstrating revolutionary design concepts.”

Unfortunately this year the Oscars will not have a host again, and many people such as Katie Millspaugh states her perspective, “I think they’ll manage without a host as they have and it gives opportunities for people to step in a “host” briefly.” Crow also presents his favorite part of the Oscars,”probably the opening monologue they are usually good.”

On January 26th 2020, the world was struck by the horrible incident of NBA’s most famous player Kobe Bryant since the Oscars are approaching, we may be in store for a remembrance of everyone’s beloved basketball player. Millspaugh implies,”I am looking forward to seeing if rumors about honoring Kobe are going to be true.”
