by Taylor Mac
Full-length play/performance art cabaret/subversive jukebox musical of original songs and text; No set but lots of costumes and a giant suitcase
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.
