“A necessary and great American epic for our time” (Los Angeles Times)

 

Equal parts community organizer, Elizabethan fool and bedazzled bon vivant, Taylor Mac is recognized as one of the most exciting voices in contemporary theater, and hailed for engaging diverse audiences.

 

The Pulitzer Prize for Drama finalist and Tony-nominated theater artist chronicles an unseen history of America through a hand-picked selection from Mac’s epic 24-Decade musical odyssey, ranging from murder ballads to disco and everything in between. This immersive and entertaining production, where the audience is central to the experience, chronicles the ways in which communities build themselves because they are being torn apart. Bedecked in gloriously irreverent regalia designed by long time collaborator Machine Dazzle, Mac is joined on stage by Music Director Matt Ray and an incomparable band. The performance is “startlingly unique…a must see for anyone who wants to see a kinder, gentler society.” (Huffington Post)

 

The fabulous, fierce, and unforgettable Taylor Mac appears as part of a larger artist residency co-presented by FirstWorks with the Brown Arts Initiative.

 

Performance may include mature content and is intended for adult audiences.
