Show Summary Details


September 11, 2001 marks the well-coordinated attacks made on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center in New York. The exchange of e-mails in this chapter between Simon Morgan Wortham, Gary Hall, and the author of this book from September 10, 2001 to September 18 of that same year were initially intended to discuss and formulate a critique of the author's work. The participants in this exchange also gave their insights on the then recent events and were actually able to derive in depth analyses of the attacks and of theatricality, giving importance to globalization, theatricalization, and the impact of the events on the “audience” and society.

Keywords: September 11; theatricality; globalization; Simon Morgan Wortham; Gary Hall
