Three Grammy noms came a few months later her main competition being Bobbie Gentry , whose notorious "Ode to Billie Joe" won in two of the three categories. Vikki found herself on the fast track, which kept her busy for the rest of the decade, performing in high-end venues and making numerous appearances on network TV variety shows. David came up with more contributions to Carr's repertoire; "The Lesson" hit the top 40 in January '68 like its predecessor, it reached number one on the Easy Listening charts and "She'll Be There" had a less spectacular run a few months later, its flip, "Your Heart is Free Just Like the Wind" composed by three Frenchmen with a lyrical translation by Brit John Shakespeare , the preferred side on many stations.
These hits all had one thing in common: they dealt with heartbreaking romantic themes, a "don't mess with success" reaction to the song that had made Carr a household name in the U. A Bobby Goldsboro song, "With Pen in Hand" which had been a minor hit for Billy Vera a year before , reveals a breakup story that pulls no punches; Vikki's version returned her to the top 40 in June Although its theatrical traditions seem to have lost their vitality, Greek theatre continued into the Hellenistic period the period following Alexander the Great 's conquests in the fourth century BCE.
However, the primary Hellenistic theatrical form was not tragedy but ' New Comedy ', comic episodes about the lives of ordinary citizens.
The only extant playwright from the period is Menander. One of New Comedy's most important contributions was its influence on Roman comedy, an influence that can be seen in the surviving works of Plautus and Terence.
Most ancient Greek cities lay on or near hills, so seating was generally built into the slope of a hill, producing a natural viewing area known as the theatron literally "seeing place". In cities without suitable hills, banks of earth were piled up. There were often tall, arched entrances called parodoi or eisodoi , through which actors and chorus members entered and exited the orchestra. The theatron was the seating area, built into a hill to create a natural viewing space.
The first seats in Greek theatres other than just sitting on the ground were wooden, but around BC the practice of inlaying stone blocks into the side of the hill to create permanent, stable seating became more common. They were called the "prohedria" and reserved for priests and a few most respected citizens. The paraskenia was a long wall with projecting sides, which may have had doorways for entrances and exits.
Just behind the paraskenia was the proskenion "in front of the scene" , which is similar to the modern day proscenium. The upper story was called the episkenion. Some theatres also had a raised speaking place on the orchestra called the logeion.
A temple nearby, especially on the right side of the scene, is almost always part of the Greek theatre complex. This could justify, as a transposition, the recurrence of the pediment with the later solidified stone scene.
The orchestra was a circular piece of ground at the bottom of the theatron where the chorus and actors performed. Originally unraised, Greek theatre would later incorporate a raised stage for easier viewing. This practice would become common after the advent of "New Comedy," which incorporated dramatic portrayal of individual character. The coryphaeus was the head chorus member, who could enter the story as a character able to interact with the characters of a play.
Plays often began in the morning and lasted into the evening. The theaters were built on a large scale to accommodate a large number of people on stage and in the audience—up to fourteen thousand [ which?
