MCA Stage: Sep 27–28, 2013

Taylor Mac, the “ragingly original and bracingly radical [and] best cabaret performer” of New York (TimeOut), and his band make their MCA Stage debut in this incredible visual feast and concert. The Obie Award–winning playwright, actor, and singer-songwriter transforms into a bedazzled creature who leads us into a decidedly personal history of music, ideas, and ways of being—in a hilarious and healing performance ritual.

Mac delves deep into the history of political popular music for this performance, the latest in his series of concerts exploring the last 240 years of popular songs in America. Funny and moving with a sweet, powerful voice, he has the bantering skills of a veteran drag artist, “yet he can shift effortlessly to a more somber tone when he wants to drive home a message” (New York Times).
