In «A 24-Decade History of Popular Music,» Taylor Mac charts the history of popular music and activism in America, from the nation’s founding in 1776 to the present day.
This uniquely original performance art concert featuring many special guests will be presented over 2 weeks. Winner of the 2017 Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama Inspired by American History, the production has been hailed by The New York Times critic Wesley Morris as “one of the great experiences of my life.”
CHAPTER 1: 1776-1836
The American Revolution from the perspective of the yankee doodle dandy, the early woman’s lib movement, an epic battle between drinking songs and early temperance songs, a dream sequence where the audience is blindfolded and the heteronormal narrative as colonization.
