laughingpraisinglovingsmiling asked: I am currently working on Avalanche from Tales from the Bad Years, and I'm required to do an in-depth character and plot analysis of the song. I would really love to get some more insight as to what this show is about/who the character is singing this song, but I can't find the script or full videos of the production anywhere online! Can you direct me to where I can find the script or give me a brief plot synopsis of the show? I would really appreciate it. Thank You!!
Avalanche is a stand alone song. While it is from Tales from the Bad Years, the musical is more of a song cycle than a standard musical. Here’s more info including a synopsis about the musical here.
But I believe you can still give an in depth analysis of the character of the song, this is clearly a woman who has put up walls and has been hurt before. She loves with her whole heart to the point where it’s overwhelming to her and to those around her. Hopefully this is a good starting point, there’s a lot of depth in the lyrics that reveal who she is as a person even if she does not have a definite name.
Anyone is more than welcome to jump in and give their own ideas and thoughts about Avalanche!
