Cue, You’re On

Chapter 1 creates a foundation for thinking about performance by providing communication models applicable to the performance process, describing types of performers (career vs. non-career performers) and levels of performances (live or prerecorded, the audience interpretation of the performance, and the remembered performance). The outcome of the performance process is performance itself, and it should be a memorable one. Finally, the importance of a performer’s image cannot be underestimated and is, in fact, the theme of this book.
