Taylor Mac: This Christmas, Try it With a Little “Holiday Sauce”

When it comes to live entertainment, you can’t get more cutting edge than Taylor Mac. You may have heard about the actor, playwright, performance artist, director, producer and singer/songwriter receiving the coveted MacArthur “Genius Grant.”

Or perhaps you know someone who’s witnessed one of judy’s (yes, that’s the preferred “pronoun”) marathon performances of A 24-Decade History of Popular Music. And if you watched the Tony Awards, you likely remember judy’s memorable appearance in high drag describing the play Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus, which Mac penned. It’s hard to disagree: this performer defies categorization.

That being the case, why not get into the spirit of the season? Mac is currently on the road performing Holiday Sauce, an irreverent work riffing on the theme of “Christmas as calamity” across the country this December.

If you’re in the NYC area, you can catch judy in glamorous Newark at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. Other cities that can brace for a taste of the Mac include Richmond, VA, Washington, DC, Ann Arbor and Seattle. And while one never quite knows what to expect from the artist, The Los Angeles Times opines that the show casts a “cathartic spell to make things a little lighter for all those who find caroling, eggnog and enforced family visits destabilizing.”

If nothing else, it’s sure to be fresher than another eye-glazing marathon of It’s a Wonderful Life or A Christmas Story.
