Sweat was my first Broadway show that I have ever been to. The topic of this show was very interesting and caught my attention at the show. It was a good experience seeing a Broad way show for the first time. Not only did the actors do well in the show, they also contribute a broad conversation on the social, cultural, and political issues we have today. In the show, it takes place in the year 2000. In 2000, people were being fired or locked out from work by having other workers take their spot with a lower minimum wage. This event is shown in the play by having one of the actors taking away the person’s job. The actors in the play were people that were friends at a bar. Overall, the play was very good and recommended for people who enjoy watching Broadway shows.
I believe that Sara Schulman did an excellent job during the literature round table in the Atrium Amphitheater. She uses a lot of imagery in her literature works that helps readers have a perspective of the narrator in the story. What caught my attention was that she uses New York in her literature works as the setting. Even though there may be some issues in New York, she loves and is proud of being a New Yorker.
- What was your motivation to publish all the books that you have currently published?
- How did you feel after publishing your first book?
I was named Jason because one of my uncle’s name was Jason. Another reason that I was named Jason is that each letter in my name represents the months in a year. (July, August, September, October, November.) I used to think that I was given the name Jason thinking I was not unique. In the bible, Jason is known as the “cure” to things. In Greek mythology, Jason was the leader of the Argonauts and fought to take the throne. Jason means strong and brave in Greek Mythology. Jason is an easy name to pronounce and is short. I believe that my name does not mean brave. I am actually the opposite when I am in unfamiliar circumstances. After doing some research for my name, I have a better understanding to why my parents named me after my uncle.
