The Be(a)st of Taylor Mac

A flamboyant chameleon of words, music, and sociopolitical tirades, visual and vocal phenomenon Mac employs gender-bending surrealism to explore the human condition and challenge the contemporary culture of fear.
Written & performed by Taylor Mac
Directed by David Drake
Premiere: Joe’s Pub (NYC)
I have performed my play “The Be(A)st of Taylor Mac” over two hundred times in various venues over the past four years. Because it is the kind of play that can only be performed by me, I’ve decided to retire it and dedicate my time to making and performing new work. Thanks to all of the venues and administrators who have helped present it, David Drake for his direction, Paul Lucas and Morgan Jenness for the vision, bookings, promotion, and support, and all those who have come to experience it. Perhaps we’ll bring it out of retirement in ten years. In the meantime you can purchase a digital download of a live recording on itunes or by clicking here.
