Celebrate Brooklyn!: Taylor Mac Presents The 20th Century Abridged

Taylor Mac performs at the Bandshell as part of Celebrate Brooklyn!, presented by BRIC in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website

“Fabulousness can come in many forms, and Taylor Mac seems intent on assuming each and every one of them.” (NY Times) The inimitable Mac, “one of the most exciting theater artists of our time,” (TimeOut NY) presents this supercharged slice of his 24 Decade History of Popular Music, a politically-charged, enormous of spirit, and outrageously entertaining romp through 100 years of culture as seen through songs that range from Tin Pan Alley to the birth of rock ‘n’ roll to disco and beyond. Special guests include the Brooklyn United Marching Band, a gaggle of burlesque dancers, and maybe a few surprises. A Taylor Mac show is like nothing you’ve ever witnessed: “Startlingly unique…a must see for anyone who wants to see a kinder, gentler society.” (Huffington Post

Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
