A 24-Decade History of Popular Music: The First Act

Joined onstage by a 24-piece orchestra and host of local special guests, New York's Mac has created a Pulitzer Prize-nominated, once-in-a-lifetime, immersive performance in a quest to chronicle how communities grow stronger as they are being torn apart. Charting the years 1776?1806, he asks the audience to conspire with him to reimagine rebellions, revolutions, triumphs and tragedies. Bawdy pub songs, sea shanties and subversive anthems are rearranged as musical mash-ups to take on a chapter of the defining early years of America's history. The New York Times critic has described it as 'one of the greatest experiences of my life' A 24-Decade History of Popular Music: The First Act is part of our 2018 Season, The Art of Change, which explores how artists respond to, reflect and can potentially effect change in the social and political landscape.
