We are honored to welcome guest speaker Taylor Mac to address the students. The first American to receive the International Ibsen Award, Mac (who uses the pronoun judy) is also a MacArthur Fellow, a Pulitzer Prize Finalist, a Tony nominee for Best Play and the recipient of the Kennedy Prize (with Matt Ray), the Doris Duke Performing Artist Award, a Guggenheim, the Herb Alpert Award, a Drama League Award, the Helen Merrill Playwriting Award, the Booth, two Helpmann Awards, a NY Drama Critics Circle Award, two Obies, two Bessies and an Ethyl Eichelberger. An alumnus of New Dramatists, judy is the author of Bark of Millions and The Hang (with composer Matt Ray); Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus; A 24-Decade History of Popular Music; Prosperous Fools; The Fre; Hir; The Walk Across America for Mother Earth; The Lily's Revenge; The Young Ladies Of; Red Tide Blooming; The Be(A)st of Taylor Mac; and the revues Comparison is Violence; Holiday Sauce; and The Last Two People on Earth: an Apocalyptic Vaudeville (created with Mandy Patinkin and Susan Stroman).

With judy's vast theatrical imagination and expansive range of work, Mac has harnessed the power of theater to build community and inspire a reconsideration of assumptions about gender, identity, ethnicity and performance itself.

Reception to follow in the Nearburg Arts Forum

Taylor Mac's 24-Decade History of Popular Music will be screening on Tuesday, May 28 in the Loew Auditorium at 7 pm.
