“Fabulousness can come in many forms, and Taylor Mac seems intent on assuming every one of them.” – The New York Times

The incomparable theater artist Taylor Mac returns to Chapel Hill following his PlayMakers appearance as Cabaret’s emcee. Beloved for his beauty, disarming vulnerability and soaring spirit, his award-winning performances provoke and embrace his diverse audiences. This world premiere performance, commissioned by Carolina Performing Arts, showcases both music from and inspired by the 1910s, as well as searing social commentary on the decade. The piece will culminate in A 24-Hour History of Popular Music, Mac’s most ambitious project to date, which will feature a 24-hour marathon concert celebrating the last 240 years of popular music in America.
