Christmas as calamity—2017 MacArthur Fellow Taylor Mac takes on the holidays in this latest installment of the artist’s A 24-DECADE HISTORY OF POPULAR MUSIC project.
Celebrating the holiday season in all of its dysfunction, Taylor Mac is joined by longtime collaborators designer Machine Dazzle, music director Matt Ray, a spectacular band and surprise special guests to reframe the songs you love and the holidays you hate.
HOLIDAY SAUCE is the artist’s first San Francisco appearance since Mac’s now legendary 24-hour performance at the Curran last fall. Presented in association with Pomegranate Arts.
“With Taylor’s spirit of inclusion and playful mischief, I couldn’t imagine a more fitting artist to take our stage this holiday season. I can’t wait for our Bay Area audiences to hear Taylor’s distinct take on ‘the most wonderful time of the year,’ as part of our ongoing collaboration.” -Carole Shorenstein Hays
“The church of Taylor Mac has opened its doors. Get your head spun, your politics woke and your theatrical aesthetic cracked wide open.”
The Mercury News
"Worried about the future of American theater? Look to Taylor Mac."
San Francisco Chronicle
"Taylor Mac is an engaging storyteller, a compelling singer, a defiantly delicious drag artist and a performer with seemingly endless stamina."
