Five paragraphs in length. A paragraph should be 4-5 sentences long.
Structure

The following is not a hard and fast rule, but more of a guide.

Paragraph 1, Introduction:
Who (the playwright, director, main actors, designers, etc.)
What (the play)
Your initial thoughts on the play/musical and how the camera may have changed the experience
Maybe it would have been funnier in person?
Or perhaps because you saw it alone you were more comfortable with reacting carefree?
Was the camera work distracting at all? Or did it help you focus on the story and actors more? Did the camera choreography help tell the story at all?
Where (name of the theatre and the school/company sponsoring the play)
When (performance times and dates)

Paragraph 2: Summary
A brief summary of the action of the play
A brief idea of the major themes of the play

Paragraphs 3 and 4: The Meat & Potatoes
Pick two major topics that should be discussed. For example, paragraph 3 might discuss the acting and paragraph may address technical issues that the play raised. Try not to mention a ton of different topics, but to limit the review to two topics and discuss each completely.
You can also discuss here things that they could do on film that may be more difficult or different in real life. For instance, a ton of different locations, special effects, seamless lighting changes (or perhaps the lighting was more realistic in the movie than it would be on the stage), surround sound audio and underscoring.
Note: Simply describing that something is “good” or “bad” isn’t enough. These are surface-level arguments. Dig deeper and defend your opinions using information that you have read in the textbook, things we have discussed in class, or information you have gleaned from lectures. Back up what you say and prove that you know what you are talking about. Think of yourself as a critic, not simply a reviewer.

Paragraph 5: Closing
Wrap up your paper with a brief closing statement in 3-5 sentences.
