From the Foreword:

“Oral Traditions Scholar Dr. John Miles Foley often used the phrase Breakthrough to Performance to describe the delicious experience of lifting words off the printed page and breathing life into them through live performance.

“A wise person once said: Reading without performance is like going into a restaurant, sitting down at the table and eating the cardboard menu without ever ordering food. Live performance takes students back into the kitchen, where the real nutrition is.

“Now that Rob has unlocked the Pandora’s Box of voiced text, there is no way to close it again. Once a teacher experiences the obvious advantages of adopting this exciting teaching strategy, there is no way to return to the small frame of teaching literature as simply printed words on the page.” --Author, Storyteller and Graduate School Instructor, Robin Moore
