Mixed Blood ZEALOUS HELLIONS Series Presents: TAYLOR MAC
MINNEAPOLIS (February 20, 2020)—Mixed Blood Theatre hosts Taylor Mac in their newest ZEALOUS HELLIONS event on March 17, 2020 at 7 P.M. ZEALOUS HELLIONS is a project of Mixed Blood Theatre to provide the community with real-time, face-to-face conversations between artists, cultural provocateurs, politicians and thought-leaders in an intimate setting. The program allows audiences a glimpse into a different facet of a known personality and opportunity for deeper community dialogue.
Taylor Mac, who uses “judy” (lowercase unless at the start of a sentence, just like a regular pronoun), not as a name but as a gender pronoun – is a playwright, actor, singer-songwriter, performance artist, director and producer. Judy’s work has been performed in hundreds of venues including on Broadway, the Lincoln Center, D.C.’s Kennedy Center and the Sydney Opera House – just to name a few. Mac is a MacArthur “Genius Grant” recipient, a Pulitzer prize finalist for drama, a Tony nominated playwright and the recipient of countless awards.
Mac will discuss art, gender, expression and last year’s Broadway experience with the show Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus in conversation with Jeremy Cohen, the Producing Artistic Director of the Playwrights’ Center.
“Political, virtuosic, and brilliant, Taylor Mac engages audiences as active participants in works that dramatize the power of theater as a space for building community – embodying the ambitions of the Mixed Blood Theatre,” says Artistic Director Jack Reuler. “Taylor and Jeremy Cohen will ignite our Zealous Hellions audiences to perceive the possibilities of live theater through a new lens.”
Mac and Cohen will debate, connect and theorize with each other on stage which, in combination with audience energy and participation, will result in humor, inspiration and wisdom.
This ZEALOUS HELLIONS offering will take place on March 17 from 7:00PM and last 90 minutes. Guarantee admission for $25, become a member, or attend without charge on a first-come-first-served basis via Radical Hospitality.
