“One of the most exciting theater artists of our time.”
—TimeOut New York
For the last 20 years Taylor Mac—who uses the gender pronoun “judy”—has created performance events that provoke and embrace diverse audiences. At Wesleyan, judy will perform the Connecticut premiere of the highly immersive and outrageously entertaining abridged version of A 24-Decade History of Popular Music (2016), a subjective history of American culture and dysfunction since 1776. The show highlights various musical styles and artistic voices, ranging from murder ballads to disco, Walt Whitman to David Bowie.
