Barbara E. Thornbury explores how ?Japan? and ?Japanese culture? have been constructed, reconstructed, and transformed in response to the hundreds of productions that have taken place over the past sixty years in New York, the main entry point and defining cultural nexus in the United States for the global touring market in the performing arts.
