Taylor Mac: A 24-Decade History of Popular Music - presented by Opening Nights Performing Arts
Description:

A 24-Decade History of Popular Music is Mac’s subjective history of America since 
its founding in 1776. The project chronicles the ways in which communities build themselves because they are being torn apart. Years in development, the piece was originally performed as a one-time 24-hour event and was recognized on The New
York Times’ 2016 lists of Best Performances, Best Theater and Best Music.

This abridged version of the show is a 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 “forgotten, 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 music director/arranger Matt Ray, an incomparable band and local performers, 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)
