New York Live Arts

        

Running time: 180 minutes

Taylor Mac is accompanied by a live band, dancing beauties, and special guests in his unique mash-up of music, history, performance, and art. As part of the Under the Radar Festival, Mac will cover the first three decades of the 20th century in one evening. These performances are part of Mac’s A 24-Decade History of Popular Music: 1900-1950s, culminating in a six-hour, six-decade marathon performance on January 25. Eventually, this work will become a 24-hour spectacle covering the last 240 years of popular music in America.

An Obie Award-winner, Taylor Mac is a playwright, actor, singer-songwriter, cabaret performer, performance artist, director and producer. He has performed at The Public Theater and Joe’s Pub at The Public, Lincoln Center, The Sydney Opera House, and more.
