Event Details

Right This Way: A History of the Audience—just published in the fall of 2023—is longtime Playbill editor Robert Viagas’ pop history of audiences through the ages, packed with popular culture references. His lecture sheds light on fascinating stories from the past and issues that shape our lives today: everything from the ancient Greeks, the audience that saw Abraham Lincoln get assassinated, the history of booing, the appeal of horror movies, group reactions at sporting events, right up to binge-watching Netflix.
