Pulitzer-Winning Performance Artist Taylor Mac Visits Ancram

Posted on Thu, Nov 2, 2017 at 9:00 AM

Kinda sounds like the treatment for a pretty entertaining film: “What happens when a Pulitzer Prize- and MacArthur ‘Genius Grant’-winning drag/cabaret artist visits a tiny farm town to deliver a sold-out performance that ‘celebrates the holiday season in all its dysfunction’?” But guess what: That’s exactly what’s happening on November 25, when New York’s revered Taylor Mac presents “Holiday Sauce” at the Ancram Opera House. “Holiday Sauce” is the latest installment of Mac’s internationally exalted A 24-Decade History of Popular Music, which the artist workshopped at Vassar College’s Powerhouse Theater, has been called “explosive, spectacular, [and] heartbreaking” by The Guardian. For this incredibly rare small-town Hudson Valley performance, Mac will be accompanied by his longtime collaborators, designer Machine Dazzle and music director Matt Ray, to “reframe the songs you love and the holidays you hate.” Here’s a bit more about Mac and A 24-Decade History of Popular Music: Taylor Mac will present “Holiday Sauce” at the Ancram Opera House in Ancram, New York, on November 25 at 7:30pm. The performance is sold out. www.ancramoperahouse.org
