Obie Award-winner Taylor Mac in concert April 22

PlayMakers Repertory Company presents Obie Award-winning actor-playwright-performance artist Taylor Mac in a solo concert April 22 in Chapel Hill.

Mac is currently featured as the lasciviously charming Emcee in PlayMakers’ hit Mainstage Season finale “Cabaret.” As an extra treat, when “Cabaret” closes he will appear for one night only in a taste of his newest creation – “The 1780s,” a 90-minute excerpt from the “24-Hour Concert of the History of Popular Music.” Over the next two years, a bedazzled Taylor, in the sartorial splendor of his awarding-winning New York productions, is singing 24 concerts, each based on one of the last 24 decades of popular music. Ultimately all 24 concerts will be stitched together culminating in a 24-hour extravaganza.

The New York Times has praised Mac as “magnetic,” “a terrifically gifted singer” and “charmingly subversive.” TimeOut New York just named him a future legend of New York theatre, one of the next generation of theatrical superstars.

The concert will take place Monday, April 22 at 7:30pm at Top of the Hill’s Back Bar, 100 E. Franklin Street, Third Floor, in Chapel Hill. Tickets are $25 each and are available by calling 919.962.7529 or online at Space is extremely limited.
