The Characters of Theophrastus - M.F. Corwin
While Enda Walsh didn’t have to insert much new music for his first musical, “Once,” he was tasked with a much different issue, bringing one of the most soft-spoken and intimate films of the 21st century to the stage. As a result, he had to rewrite one of the main characters almost entirely, writing her as an energetic personality with a lot of attitude, almost a polar opposite of Marketa Irglova’s take on Girl in the 2007 Irish film.
The 'Characters of Theophrastus,' translated by R.C. Jebb, 1870.
By now, you’ve probably heard of the Disney movie “Coco,” the animated Day of the Dead film about a young boy named Miguel who dreams of becoming a musician, and runs away from home because his family disapproves of his dreams. It’s set in a fictional village in Mexico, with streets lined with papel picado, characters saying colloquial Spanish sayings, and other intimate Mexican cultural references.
