A subversive fusion of cabaret, political tirade and stark raving fabulousness, Taylor Mac’s Herald Angel Award-winning solo piece is both visually surreal and compellingly human. Accompanied only by outrageous costumes and a ukelele, this New York performance art legend sings songs about love, mermaids, subway safety directives and revolution.
