Two measures of audience response to performance of literary texts were constructed and tested. The first measure is a coding system created for analyzing audience response to open-ended questions. The ten categories proved useful in discriminating responses across performances, but need further work in clarifying their relative importance and interrelationships. The second measure is a quantitative, scalar measure that provided five clear factors, good reliability, and useful discrimination. The Identification factor, however, needs additional clarification.
