“Fabulousness can come in many forms, and Taylor Mac seems intent on assuming each and every one of them.” (NY Times) 

Named “one of the most exciting theater artists of our time,” (TimeOut NY) 


For the last 20 years Mac has created internationally award-winning performance events that at once provoke and embrace diverse audiences — shows that don’t “just defy categorization; [Mac] makes the categories themselves seem irrelevant.” (TimeOut NY).

For this multi-award winning performer’s debut in Reykjavik, Mac has created a highly immersive and outrageously entertaining programme featuring music from the critically lauded A 24-Decade History of Popular Music along with new original songs. A 24-Decade History of Popular Music is Mac’s subjective history of America since its founding. The piece was recognized on The New York Times’ 2016 lists of Best Performances, Best Theater, and Best Music and earned its creator the 2020 Ibsen Prize for Drama.  

Joined by music director/arranger Matt Ray, costume designer/performer Machine Dazzle and an incomparable band, Mac appears on stage decked and bedazzled in gloriously irreverent regalia for a night that will be “(s)tartlingly unique … a must see for anyone who wants to see a kinder, gentler society.” (Huffington Post)
