The Be(A)st of Taylor Mac to Play Yale Festival

News   The Be(A)st of Taylor Mac to Play Yale Festival Award-winning performance artist Taylor Mac will perform his solo show The Be(A)st of Taylor Mac at the Yale Repertory Theatre Jan. 28-30.

The engagement is presented through the No Boundaries festival, a co-presentation between Yale Rep and the World Performance Project at Yale. David Drake directs the 90-minute work. Mac wrote the piece that is described as "a wild—and wildly funny—gender-bending fusion of cabaret, politics, and stark raving fabulousness."

Mac's epic five-hour work The Lily's Revenge played a sold-out New York run at HERE last fall. Mac is a 2005 Ethyl Eichelberger Award winner. His works also include Peace and Red Tide Blooming. Mac appeared in the premiere New York production of Elizabeth Swados' Jabu, as well as in productions of Hamlet, The Little Foxes, Assassins and Beach Blanket Babylon. He is also at work on a two-man show with Tony Award winner Mandy Patinkin, and a festival of plays based on his experience on The Walk Across America For Mother Earth.

Tickets are available by visiting YaleRep, by calling (203) 432-1234 or by visiting the Yale Rep box office (1120 Chapel Street).
