Event Details

Taylor Mac (who prefers the pronoun ‘judy’), the “ragingly original and bracingly radical [and] best cabaret performer” of New York (Timeout NY), and judy’s band make their Cincinnati debut in this incredible visual feast and concert. The Obie Award–winning playwright, actor, and singer-songwriter transforms into a bedazzled creature who leads us into a decidedly personal history of music, ideas, and ways of being in a hilarious and healing performance ritual.

For this performance, Mac delves deep into the history of popular music over the CAC’s existence, the latest part in judy’s series of concerts exploring the last 240 years of popular songs in America. Funny and moving with a sweet, powerful voice, judy has the bantering skills of a veteran drag artist, “yet [judy] can shift effortlessly to a more somber tone when [judy] wants to drive home a message” (New York Times).

“With scattershot brilliance he uses his many talents to get us to listen, think and feel. The effect is heartening, vital and liberating” – The London Times

“Mac is passionate about his views, delivering an energetic performance that ticks so many boxes for an evening's entertainment, whilst getting you to question everyday social attitudes in ways you may never have done before” – The Huffington Post UK

8:00PM (Doors at 7:30PM)

There will be an artist meet and greet in the Cabaret Room at Below Zero Lounge following the performance: http://www.belowzerolounge.com/
