    Becoming Julia

    AZALEA ROSARIO
    The spotlight exposes my presence. I feel as if I have all of the power on stage. The words linger in my mind as though a dart has been thrown into my heart. I stop and think. How can such a loving girl go through the misfortunate events that Julia goes through for her unfaithful boyfriend? Hatred enters my heart and a small lump forms in my throat, despite the fact that I am in front of an audience performing the role of Julia from Shakespeare’s The Two Gentlemen of Verona. I feel her pain and her anger. Part of me wants to run offstage because I no longer want to portray a heartbroken girl, but another part of me wants to stay and complete the play for my audience, and for Julia.
