1st Draft what do u think?

Ok, this is a really really rough draft.  I am thinking about using this is an opener.  What do u think?


The audience is silent as the slides begin.  Images of lynchings cover the walls.  Suddenly, the music starts. As Mahilia Jackson sings Onward Christian Solider, a dancer wearing a white robe marches onto the stage carrying a bible.  I could sense the uneasiness in the theater.  People were upset and horrified that this type of work would be allowed in the show. I among them wondered how this piece ever made it to the stage.  It seem to go on for an hour, but after twelve minutes of brutal images, bloody hands, and the destruction of a bible it was over.

Oddly enough yes I would want to read more, but with great trepidation.

At the very least, make it so it's all in the same tense.  Can you explain the rest of the PS, and tell us what makes it so "kick ass"?  I don't get it.

I would add proper punctuation before submitting it for content evaluation.  Then, I would try to put things in the same tense.  (Also, it may be a typo, but it's Mahalia Jackson.)
