In any genre of literature, it is the action of the characters that draws us into the story. Their challenges, decisions, tragedies, and triumphs focus our attention, revealing a broader aspect of the human condition as well as, perhaps, some facet of our own. One of the oldest literary devices used is to expose a character’s “tragic flaw” at some point in the story line. A “tragic flaw” is defined as an imperfection, personality defect, or ego-driven foible that influences and affects motives and ultimately brings about a downfall of either the hero or someone close to the hero. For example, Hamlet’s inability to make a decision eventually leads to many tragic events.
Name a real-life character from history or current times and explain his or her tragic flaw and the consequences of that flaw. Elaborate on the conditions leading to the flaw and how the downfall could have been avoided. Two such examples are Tiger Woods and Amy Winehouse.

Broadway musicals are a popular medium for breathing new life into historical figures—(Alexander) Hamilton—and presenting aspects of contemporary society and culture in a new way—The Book of Mormon. Unlike opera, which is typically set to Classical or modern art music, musicals tend to draw from contemporary popular music styles.
1. Select either an overlooked or misunderstood historical figure or a distinct sub-culture (not musically themed) and discuss what type of popular music would influence its presentation as a musical.
2. Describe characteristics of the music genre’s style such as melody, rhythm, texture, and timbre, and reference three example pieces in your essay with YouTube links cited at the end.
3. Explain how your chosen style of music would guide the audience’s attitude toward the historical figure or cultural group and, perhaps, offer an alternative viewpoint than ones frequently held.
4. What stagecraft details would further guide this interpretation?
