Description

TAYLOR MAC
A 24-Decade History of Popular Music (Abridged)

A 24-Decade History of Popular Music is MacArthur Fellow and Pulitzer Prize finalist Taylor Mac's subjective history of America since its founding in 1776. Originally performed as a one-time 24-hour event, this abridged version is a highly immersive and outrageously entertaining crash course in the 240 years (and counting) of the history of American culture and dysfunction. Told from the perspective of groups whose stories are often "forgot, dismissed or buried," the show highlights various musical styles and artistic voices ranging from murder ballads to disco, Walt Whitman to David Bowie and beyond. Joined by longtime collaborator, Music Director and Arranger, Matt Ray and an incomparable band, Mac appears on stage decked and bedazzled in gloriously irreverent regalia for a night that is "Startlingly unique...a must see for anyone who wants to see a kinder, gentler society." (Huffington Post)
