"Overall, I find McKenzie's fluid essaying and profuse theorizing exhilarating. Alternately serious and ludic, vigorously interpretive and rewardingly idiosyncratic, this book is best read in the spirit in which it was written: as performance.."
-"Theatre Journal, Arthur Sabatini, Arizona State University
"In high-spirited prose that careens through both predictable and idiosyncratically selected texts and examples, McKenzie makes the case for rethinking performance as a concept and theory applicable far beyond theatre, performance, and cultural studies.."
-"Theatre Journal, Arthur Sabatini, Arizona State University
..."incredibly smart, provocative, and important.."
-Janelle Reinelt, University of California, Irvine
"Wholly original. Extremely valuable. A truly remarkable book.."
-Philip Auslander, author of "Liveness
"This tour de force introduces 'performance' as a new practice giving access to a secret network connecting 'performance' in all its uses across the divisions of knowledge. The liminal hinge of this newtork is 'the Challenger Lecture Machine, ' to whose seven Challengers may be added this eighth wonder of the performance world.."
-Gregory L. Ulmer, Professor of English, University of Florida
