    This play was very interesting to read In the beginning I was confused by Shange s abbreviations and had to use guess work to figure out what she was saying, but as the choreopoem went on, I got better at deciphering what she was saying Thank goodness for this because the action in this choreopoem speeds by and if you re not focused, you ll miss something Since this was a choreopoem, the actual character building isn t really meant to be full blown yet, I wanted to hearfrom each woman s This play was very interesting to read In the beginning I was confused by Shange s abbreviations and had to use guess work to figure out what she was saying, but as the choreopoem went on, I got better at deciphering what she was saying Thank goodness for this because the action in this choreopoem speeds by and if you re not focused, you ll miss something Since this was a choreopoem, the actual character building isn t really meant to be full blown yet, I wanted to hearfrom each woman s character However, Shange s motives seem to be to have the characters isso to have them represent something opposed to having them actually letting them form whole personalities.While I did like this choreopoem, I would have to say without actually seeing a visual interpretation of it be it a theatrical production, the tv movie, or the film adaptation , one could get lost fairly easily Since I read this choreopoem for an assignment ...

    I have to say that I loved this play It was a bit weird to read the stage directions along with the poetry that was being said by these characters, but it was quite easy to read and follow.For colored girls is considered a choreopoem i.e there are monologues that also include dance and music with seven women in different colors speaking to the audience.The seven women are the lady in red, lady in orange, lady in yellow, lady in green, lady in blue, lady in brown, and lady in purple.Some of t I have to say that I loved this play It was a bit weird to read the stage directions along with the poetry that was being said by these characters, but it was quite easy to read and follow.For colored girls is considered a choreopoem i.e there are monologues that also include dance and music with seven women in different colors speaking to the...
