Taylor Mac is the American theater’s most beloved maximalist and a 2017 MacArthur Fellow. Creating extravagant performances with jester-like magnetism, Mac’s work reflects the vast mosaic of the American imagination. Mac is your mischievous guide, with whom you will experience an abridged version of his epic 24-hour performance art concert, which deciphers the social history of the country through popular songs ranging from “She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain” to disco. The show is a dazzling experience that reflects our nation’s varied and sometimes dysfunctional story while reinvigorating our sense of national possibility. A 24-Decade History of Popular Music is the winner of the 2017 Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama Inspired by American History and a finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
“Taylor Mac seduces you, breaks your heart, patches it back up again and sews sequins along the scars.”The Irish Times
