The Prom was recently released onto Netflix. It was originally a broadway musical that was adapted to the screen. It tells the story of a high school girl that finds herself in a fight to bring her girlfriend to the prom.
I recently read for a literature class the play “W;t” by Margaret Edson.
And it was intense ….
The first time I read it, I remember chuckling at the sassy lines of Vivian as she dished out her annoyance onto the unwitting medical staff.
The second time I read it, I was shocked at how Vivian was treated by the medical staff. They called her research. Left her exposed. They refused to acknowledge her as a human being.
Is this play a turning point for Broadway? Did history come alive?
